On Capitol Hill, Democrats in Congress said they were losing patience, especially as the release of a batch of documents from the Department of Justice, expected yesterday, was postponed until Monday. "The White House is playing a dangerous game of chicken," said Rep. Linda Sanchez, a California Democrat who chairs the House subcommittee leading the probe.
They aren't going to release those documents Monday. They are going to release SOME of them, and probably claim "National Security" for keeping others back. They are in full panic mode. Obviously. The question is: why? Firing attorneys for political reasons is really slimy, but no worse than things these guys have already done, openly and brazenly. So, what WERE the reasons for the firings? What it JUST politics. Or something more specific?
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. John Conyers, a Democrat of Michigan, said he would schedule votes on subpoenas Thursday for two key players in the scandal, political adviser Karl Rove and former White House counsel Harriet E. Miers.
That vote had BETTER pass overwhelmingly. There is NO excuse not to subpoena Rove. He has WAY too much power for an unelected clown whom nobody likes.
