A WaPo article posted a couple hours ago tells us John Conyers isn't quite dead yet.

He's just sleeping!  He might be waking up soon!  They're doing something!

The House Judiciary Committee sent a final warning to the White House today to provide Democrats with access to disputed documents and testimony a move that pushed the House closer to a vote on contempt citations for two administration officials.

In a letter to White House Counsel Fred F. Fielding, the Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.), gave the Bush administration until Friday to work out a deal about the documents and testimony relating to last year's controversial removal of nine U.S. attorneys. If Fielding refuses the latest request, the House is likely to vote next week on the contempt charges.

 Next week, schmext week, we've heard that all before.  Or have we?

The judiciary panel also will file a formal contempt report with the House clerk today that lays out its claims against former White House counsel Harriet E. Miers and White House Chief of Staff Joshua B. Bolten.

 Has anyone seen anything about this on MSNBC?  CNN?  MTV?  Criminal charges filed against a former Supreme Court nominee, you'd think it'd be, I dunno, bigger news than the fact that Leno's going to have to go into reruns.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
