Judge Mukasey testified about his nomination to replace Alberto Gonzales as the U.S. attorney general. Some Democratic committee members said Judge Mukasey dodged questions and backed down on yesterday’s testimony about the president’s obligation to follow the law. He also testified about the use of torture in interrogations of prisoners held by the U.S. In one exchange he gave several non-committal answers when asked if he considered the practice of water boarding to be torture.

Following Judge Mukasey’s testimony, several legal experts and his colleagues spoke in support of his nomination. Other witnesses expressed concern about the legality of using torture on prisoners.

This was the second of a two-day hearing on the nomination. close
