White House Cannot Delay In Complying With Subpoenas, Federal Judge Rules


www.huffingtonpost.com

WASHINGTON — A federal judge who ruled last month that top White House advisers must comply with congressional subpoenas refused to put that ruling on hold Tuesday while the Bush administration appeals.

The House Judiciary Committee wants to force White House chief of staff Joshua Bolten and former White House counsel Harriet Miers to testify about the firing of federal prosecutors and the politicization of the Justice Department.

The White House contends that top aides are immune from such subpoenas.

U.S. District Judge John Bates rejected that argument last month but the Bush administration appealed. The White House said it should not have to comply with the subpoenas while the appeal plays out.

Bates, who was appointed by President Bush, said a delay would not be in the public interest.

A true judge, liberal or conservative. Republican or Democrat is one who upholds the law and puts it before party or ideological loyalty.

By this standard, Judge John Bates is a true judge.

Maybe, just maybe there might be some justice served on this criminal administration yet. We shall see.

Who wants to bet however that as bush minor oozes out of the white house he tries to give everyone in his administration including himself, a blanket, pre-emptive pardon?

Actually I am not sure he can do that but I wouldn't put it past him to try.
