Harriet Miers

By | October 28, 2005

Did she withdraw or was she told to withdraw? Scott McClellan made an interesting slip in his press briefing this morning:

“She called the President last night at 8:30 p.m. He was in the residence when she called him, to inform her — inform him of her decision.”

Maybe he did inform her….

and a little later

“He [Bush] is deeply disappointed in the process. He will move forward in a timely manner to name a new nominee, as he indicated in his letter — or as indicated in his statement.”

Scott had previously referred to Harriet’s letter which she had given the President. Not her letter at all – His letter.
