Bush Refuses to Answer Congressional Subpoenas

White House refuses to answer subpoenas

WASHINGTON – President Bush, moving toward a constitutional showdown with Congress, asserted executive privilege Thursday and rejected lawmakers’ demands for documents that could shed light on the firings of federal prosecutors.

Bush’s attorney told Congress the White House would not turn over subpoenaed documents for former presidential counsel Harriet Miers and former political director Sara Taylor. Congressional panels want the documents for their investigations of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’ stewardship of the Justice Department, including complaints of undue political influence.

“It’s pretty clear that again members of Congress are engaged in an attempt … to try to do what they can to make life more difficult for the White House,” Snow said.

HL’s Take
Uh, yeah Tony, that’s their job. To root out corruption and crime amongst the biggest criminal organization in the world. I know you would like it Tony if they would just leave you poor guys alone and stop bullying you, the way the Republicans did during the first 6 years of Bush’s reign.
I guess Tony thinks that the Democrats are just “playing politics” again. So now the long awaited constitutional showdown will begin. The lame ass democrats will take it to court where the supreme court will eventually rule 5-4 that Bush does not have to answer to congress. Of course if Congress would issue contempt of congress citations and begin impeachment proceedings we could avoid the upcoming dog and pony show, but you know that will never happen.
