Toast I Say!

You heard it hear first folks. I told you after his disastrous Congressional testimony that Gonzales was toast. Events have proven me correct.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Embattled U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales has resigned, senior administration officials told CNN Monday.


Alberto Gonzales was dogged by controversial issues including wiretapping programs and fired U.S. attorneys.

Bush will likely nominate Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff to the position, senior administration officials said.

Chertoff has headed Homeland Security since 2005. He served as a federal appellate court judge, a federal prosecutor and as special counsel for a Senate committee investigating President Clinton's involvement in the Whitewater land development.

The White House press office said that Gonzales' last day will be September 16. Solicitor General Paul Clement will serve as acting attorney general.
