Tony Snow on the 18-day gap

The Whitehouse spokesperson looks pretty uncomfortable in this clip as he has no good answer about the 18 day e-mail gap.

Also, Atrios points out the following:
CNN: I think also, another thing to look at, I followed up a question about executive privilege. You heard Tony Snow at the end there saying the president has no recollection of being involved in this decision to fire the US attorneys. So we asked the question then, well why are you citing executive privilege - or at least suggesting you will, and yesterday the president said the principle at stake here is candid advice from his advisers to the president - if the president was not involved in the decision, then how can you cite executive privilege on something he was really not involved in? And Tony Snow basically said, it's a good question and I don't know the answer.
That's a pretty good point. Could this be "the one" that finally pulls this shameful administration down? Let us hope.

Odd situation because the Federal prosecutors serve at the will of the President so he is the only one who can appoint or dismiss them.

So the argument that he was 'not involved' is a bit odd and also undermines his claim of 'executive priviledge.'

Yet, he wants to be able to say that these dismissals for illegal
reasons were not his doing.

Houdini may have had a problem extracting himself from this one.
