The lawmakers, Representative Silvestre Reyes, Democrat of Texas, and Representative Peter Hoekstra, Republican of Michigan, threatened to issue subpoenas to get testimony and other information from the C.I.A. “There is no basis upon which the attorney general can stand in the way of our work,” they said.

The committee had demanded that the C.I.A. produce all cables, memorandums and e-mail messages related to the videotapes, as well as the legal advice given to agency officials before the tapes were destroyed.

An interesting development. So it seems the CIA cannot be investigated by congress in order to prevent "politicizing" the investigation. How long of a delay does it take to scrub evidence? Get some new people appointed to committee? Make the outcome irrelevant?
