New Subpoena Issued In Judicary Committee Investigation

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.

Things are heating up now; wonder what the RNC will do? Hmmm...

Harriet Meirs is in some deep doo-doo. If the committee persues contempt charges against her the Justice Dept will be notified to start a gand jury indictment against her. The saddest part of all this is that Bush would rather see one of his loyal subjects go to prison for obstruction of justice and contempt than to release any documents or emails pertaining to the investigation. What does that tell you about his character? A lot!
