According to then-Acting Attorney General James Comey, Patrick Philbin was present in March 2004 when he rushed to John Ashcroft’s hospital bed to try to prevent other Bush officials from persuading the very sick Attorney General to reverse Comey’s decision as Acting Attorney General to not approve the renewal of the controversial warrantless wiretap program during the war on terror.
