The House Judiciary Committee will meet this Wednesday to vote on contempt citations against former White House counsel Harriet Miers and White House chief of staff Josh Bolten, the committee announced today. Talking Points Memo & Rawstory have the story.
"This investigation, including the reluctant but necessary decision to move forward with contempt, has been a very deliberative process, taking care at each step to respect the Executive Branch’s legitimate prerogatives,"
Rep. John Conyers (D-MI)
This group of thugs came out saying they were above the law and now they will learn that they are to be held accountable for their actions after all.
The committee had issued a kind of final deadline to Bolten to comply with the committee's subpoena by this morning. Apparently, the White House gave the same answer. The committee is targetting Bolten because the subpoena for White House documents related to the U.S. attorney firings was addressed to him, since he's the custodian. Miers, remember, refused to even show up for a hearing before the committee two weeks ago.
