Leahy Sends Message
Sen. Pat Leahy, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is sending a strong message to the Bushies: I'm going to call you as witnesses, and I'm going to put you under oath. That's because in past appearances before the Committee regarding the firing of the 8 U.S. Attorneys, Attorney General "Gone"-zales gave, er, "incomplete" statements. This time, it looks like the White House - Department of Justice connection will be explored thru testimony of Karl "Turdblossom" Rove and Harriet Miers. Well, the Libby trial didn't result in the prosecution of Rove for perjury/obstruction, but maybe this will do the trick.
Also, check out this interview with fired U.S. Attorney Bud Cummins for background.
