If Congress charges Alberto Gonzales with perjury, who would handle the case?

Wouldn't it be the Attorney General?

Update:

Who would select the special prosecutor?

If Gonzales had to investigate himself...would he recuse himself from being prosecuted?

    The Justice Department would appoint a Special Prosecutor, who would be be independent of the AG. Even though the Special Prosecutor law expired, the AG could still request one to be appointed.

    Every time Congress makes an inch, Bush will take 10 back. They are reveling in their own mire as it were because when they gain momentum, what does Bush do? Slaps it back in their face because "Bush got the power" you know? How sick is that?? A president participating in "getting himself and his staff off scott free" while still continuing to commit crimes.....reveling in his own criminal activity and then releasing himself and his staff from any wrong-doing???

    He's going to veto or ax anything that Congress does. It's a joke anymore and Bush has made a complete mockery of the presidency and our government. He's gone completely mad, as if this needless, bloody war was telling enough!

    This is why God warns us against engaging into any political matters, or even voting; anything. Maybe I shouldn't be even answering this question, but it's just another prime example of our worthless gubmit "in tow" behind a pig's @ss.
