Norman Pearlstine, Editor of Time, was on Hardball toight. I was just listening with one ear (waiting for Keith) and Pearlstine said something that perked up my ears.
He said (paraphrased), "You're assuming that it would be civil contempt, I was assured that it would be criminal contempt."
He seemed intent to state the difference. I'm not a lawyer, can someone tell me if there is a significant difference between the civil and criminal contempts?
