Will the Congressional GOP stage an emotional meltdown over contempt citations for Harriet Miers and Josh Bolten? All signs point to yes. Note that there isn’t any meaningful question about whether Miers and Bolten flouted the law. They both refused to answer subpoenas by citing privileges that don’t exist. Believe me, I would love to cite blogger’s privilege if the need should arise. Too bad I can’t do that, and unless Harriet Miers has some supercitizen status that I’m not aware of neither can she.
Of course, Harriet Miers is a Republican and therefore innocent until George Bush personally says otherwise. It always amuses me when those firm law-and-order Republican principles run and hide when the wrong kind of people get caught breaking the law.
And like that it’s done. Will Attorney General Mukasey have the spine to resist White House pressure to subvert the unambiguous will of Congress?
Ha ha, I can’t believe I just said that.
