WASHINGTON (AP) - House Democrats told no-show witness Harriet Miers on Friday that she could soon be held in contempt as they issued the Republican National Committee a new subpoena for White House e-mails.
The deadline for replies from both: Tuesday.
Miers, President Bush's former legal counsel who a day earlier defied a subpoena to appear before the House Judiciary Committee, could be held in criminal contempt of Congress if she fails to notify the panel by Tuesday that she has changed her mind and will appear, according to a letter sent to her attorney by Committee Chairman John Conyers, D-Mich.
Though instructed by Bush to skip the hearing to which she was subpoenaed, Miers - not Bush - owns that decision and could be punished for it, Conyers wrote.
