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.
