Miers Again Refuses to Comply with Congressional Subpoena By Paul Kiel - July 17, 2007, 5:30 PM Former White House counsel Harriet Miers again refused to comply with a House Judiciary Committee subpoena today, citing executive privilege. The committee had set today as the final deadline for Miers to comply, or else face contempt proceedings. Miers' attorney George Manning sent the letter to Conyers today reiterating her refusal to testify, writing that the committee was asking that "Ms. Miers do precisely what the President has prohibiting her from doing." Manning added that it wasn't Miers' decision: "The Committtee's dispute is not with Ms. Miers, but with the Executive Branch." Chairman John Conyers (D-MI) had this to say: "The subcommittee has overruled Ms. Miers' claims of immunity and privilege. Her failure to comply with our subpoena is a serious affront to this committee and our constitutional system of checks and balances. We are carefully planning our next steps."

This shouldn't surprise anyone, it is status quo for Bush and Co.. It is getting to be high time that Americans start ooking at the founding fathers and what they said about such Governments.
T. Jefferson suggested a little revolution every once ina while was good for freedom. But as long as we the people let The Government, The Media, and The Law run roughshod over us they will not change.
STAND UP AND TAKE BACK YOUR COUNTRY AMERICANS!!!
Good find OP
