Former Attorney General told NPR’s Tell Me More that there will be no prosecution for authorization of interrogations that used torture. “I don’t think that there’s going to be a prosecution, quite frankly,” said Gonzales. “Because again, these activities…. They were authorized, they were supported by legal opinions at the Department of Justice.”
Gonzales said that he found it “hard to believe” that Eric Holder would pursue investigations. “Nonetheless, the very discussion about it is extremely discouraging,” he said.
