Episode Notes

The Hon. Alberto R. Gonzales rose from humble beginnings in Humble, Texas, to some of the highest legal positions in the country as White House counsel and U.S. attorney general under President George W. Bush. As the nation prepares to inaugurate a new presidential administration, the ABA Journal’s Lee Rawles spoke with him about his new memoir, “True Faith and Allegiance,” his reflections about the choices the Bush administration made during his own time in office, and his advice for President-elect Donald Trump’s nominees. He also sheds light on how some of the post-9/11 legal decisions were made and what it meant to him to be the first Hispanic person to advise the president of the United States as his chief counsel.
