A Long, Hot Summer for DC

posted by on June 27 at 15:34 PM

From the Washington Post:

A Senate committee investigating the National Security Agency’s warrantless wiretapping program issued subpoenas to the Bush administration this afternoon for documents related to the authorization and legal justification for the eavesdropping.

The Judiciary Committee subpoenas were delivered to the offices of the president, vice president, national security adviser and the Justice Department, escalating a simmering legal battle between Congress and the Bush administration.

Oooh, I'm going to be in D.C. for a few days in July - I would sacrifice a day at the Smithsonian to be able to sit in on one of these hearings!
