Josh Bolton & Harriet Miers Above the Law

23 01 2008

From Glenn Greenwald:

Back in July of last year — more than six months ago — the Senate and House Judiciary Committees were investigating the U.S. attorneys scandal and, as part of that investigation, they issued subpoenas to current Bush Chief of Staff Josh Bolton and former White House counsel Harriet Miers, “compelling” them to appear before the Committee to answer questions. While some Bush officials testified but cited “executive privilege” as a grounds for refusing to answer specific questions, both Miers and Bolton simply refused to show up at all — literally just ignored the subpoena as though it were an invitation.

He goes on to point out the fact that congress is doing nothing to enforce their subpoena and probably never will.
