On March 12, 2004, President “Bush asked [Deputy Attorney General James] Comey and [FBI Director Robert] Mueller to speak with him privately in his study, one by one. …Comey told Bush that his staff was disserving him. …Bush had changed his mind and authorized [Chief of the Office of Legal Counsel Jack] Goldsmith to try to fix the [Terrorist Surveillance] program so that it would be legal.”
