Subpoenas Coming Soon

After White House counsel Fred Fielding offered "interviews" with Rove and Miers instead of having them under oath, Sen. Leahy said.

“I don’t accept his offer. It is not constructive and it is not helpful to be telling the Senate how to do our investigation, or to prejudge its outcome.

"Instead of freely and fully providing relevant documents to the investigating committees, they have only selectively sent documents, after erasing large portions that they do not want to see the light of day. Testimony should be on the record, and under oath. That’s the formula for true accountability.“I hope the President will agree to be forthcoming. The straighter the path to the truth, the sooner we will finally know the facts.”
It appears that we have a showdown between the White House and Congress. The House will vote tomorrow and The Senate will vote on Thursday to authorize issuing subpoenas.
