Two congressional committees are issuing subpoenas for testimony from former White House counsel Harriet Miers and former political director Sara Taylor on their roles in the firings of eight federal prosecutors, according to two officials familiar with the investigation.
I expect the White House will refuse the invitation to testify, as a part of their continuing efforts to cover-up this scandal.
It's the first time during the five-month investigation that Congress is compelling testimony from White House insiders over the firings. Not yet on the subpoena list is President Bush's top political adviser, Karl Rove, but only because Democrats have not yet finished interviewing those below him, the officials said.
Millions of emails were destroyed by the White House in an effort to hide the truth from the American people. No wonder Americans are disassociating themselves from the GOP in droves.
