Seen yesterday in no less than four separate “breaking news” items:
The House Judiciary Committee has approved a contempt citation against White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten and former presidential legal counsel Harriet Miers.
Why is this annoying news? Because I am not a hamster, anyone can see what’s coming… YEARS of senate hearings and legal actions.
Other than that, this whole thing is going to eventually lead to a major showdown with the White House over the limits of executive power and the limits of the Congress or the courts ability to take action against or contrary to the executive branch.
