Former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales told KCBD Newschannel 11 in Lubbock he’ll teach a course called Contemporary Issues in the Executive Branch at Texas Tech this fall.
Asked if he had been President Bush’s “yes man,” Gonzales said in an interview posted Thursday: “It’s categorically false.” He added: “The notion that one person alone would provide legal advice without input from others in the administration is just naïve.”
The nation’s first Hispanic attorney general also said he was excited by Sonia Sotomayor’s nomination to the Supreme Court. “It was a very proud moment for the Hispanic community,” he said. “I kept the front page of the Washington Post, because it was a historic day.”
