Attorney General Mukasey Collapses During Speech; Now “Conversant and Alert”

Attorney General Michael Mukasey collapsed earlier in the night while giving a speech to the Federalist Society at a Mariott hotel in Washington, D.C.  He was then rushed to George Washington University Hospital.  The following is footage of Mr. Mukasey’s collapse:

Justice Department spokesman Peter Carr told reporters, “The attorney general is conscious, conversant and alert.”

Associate Attorney General Kevin O’Connor told reporters, “He just started shaking and he collapsed.  They’re very concerned.”

An FBI official has told reporters that Mukasey stuttered over a word and then “went down hard.”

White House Press Secretary Dana Perino told reporters that President Bush has been informed of the situation, “The president has him in his thoughts and will be kept apprised and hopes that he will be back up and at ’em again soon.”

My thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Mukasey right now.  I wish him a speedy recovery.

Done Reporting,
