    in the wake of the coverage in question, then it was certainly illegal and a 1stA / 4thA violation.  I think there is basis for different views at this point, but I haven't heard a solid defense of the issuance of the subpoena.  It just doesn't look like the other 2 issues at all.  I think D's should be investigating it (as we no doubt would if it were an R labelled president).

      We can assert the law is a crap law but we cannot assert acts allowed under that law are illegal. As I understand the story, the subpoena was issued only after alternate methods had failed. That being said, an investigation could be quite welcome. It could perhaps find transgressions or perhaps more likely, shed light on how the law is flawed.

      That being said, I doubt what we'd get is an investigation. We'd get a performance circus, probably, and probably an open-ended witch hunt to go with it.
