Here he is insisting there’s no such thing as a Constitutional right to habeas corpus:
This is really beyond the pale. From the Baltimore Chronicle and Sentinel:
“While Gonzales’s statement has a measure of quibbling precision to it, his logic is troubling because it would suggest that many other fundamental rights that Americans hold dear (such as free speech, freedom of religion, and the right to assemble peacefully) also don’t exist because the Constitution often spells out those rights in the negative. It boggles the mind the lengths this administration will go to to systematically erode the rights and privileges we have all counted on and held up as the granite pillars of our society since our nation was founded.”

Honestly, this sort of absurd statement ought to be grounds for his removal and, frankly, disbarrment.
