More lawmakers are calling for Alberto Gonzales’ resignation and the Senate is even considering a symbolic no-confidence vote, but the White House announced Friday that the president will stand by his man: “The attorney general has the full confidence of the president. ... We think he’s been a very strong attorney general and we continue to support him.”

Democrat senators said they plan to hold a no-confidence vote on Gonzales soon, a move dismissed by the White House.
“I think we would consider it to be just another political stunt,” Fratto said.
Gonzales also faced accusations this week that as a White House aide three years ago he tried to circumvent Justice Department lawyers in seeking approval for a warrantless eavesdropping program.
