Testimony Thursday by Kyle Sampson, former aide to Alberto Gonzales', contradicted the attorney general's earlier public statements. We examine what Gonzales has "officially" put on record.

Also, Scott Horsley discusses the issues that led to the firing of U.S. attorney Carol Lam; former federal prosecutor Bud Cummins gives his reaction to Kyle Sampson's testimony and Juan Williams talks about the politics behind the president's position.
