    The Congress is also restricted in that contempt citations can only be brought on matters that relate to legislative purposes within the jurisdiction of the committee that brings the charges.

    What does legislative purposes mean?  

    At the time of the attorney firings, the USA Patriot Act with the clause allowing the AG to name replacement was intact and only revoked today.

    Does the above fact weaken or eliminate the ability of the committee?

    Just checking for pinholes.
