In a Thursday morning press conference, President George W. Bush insisted that there was no need to hold Attorney General Alberto Gonzales accountable because he had done nothing wrong.

"I haven't seen Congress say he's done anything wrong," the President insisted. "I believe, David, we're watching a political exercise."

He went on, "Why would I hold someone accountable who's done nothing wrong?"

The President also dismissed the idea that after commuting his jail sentence, he had freed convicted former Vice Presidential Chief of Staff I. Lewis 'Scooter' Libby from accountability.

"Lewis Libby was held accountable," he stated in a curt manner. "He was declared guilty by a jury. He paid a high price for it."
