WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: Now that Alberto Gonzales is stepping down, some of his fiercest critics in the U.S. Senate are warning that the next attorney general had better be more than just an old pal of the president.
BLITZER: And joining us now from Rochester, New York, Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer, a member of the Judiciary Committee.
Senator, thanks very much for coming in.
SEN. CHARLES SCHUMER (D), NEW YORK: Good to be here, Wolf.
BLITZER: Now that Alberto Gonzales has decided to step down as the attorney general, are you still going to move full speed ahead with all these various investigations, or are you going to move on to some other issues?
SCHUMER: Well, it’s all going to be up to the — who the new attorney general is. It’s our hope that we can move forward with these investigations, but do it quickly and with dispatch.
