Going Fishin’?

Posted by Ryan on March 21, 2007

In the latest round of a brewing constitutional crisis, a House committee has authorized subpoena power, should Democrat John Conyers choose, to subpoena Karl Rove, Harriet Miers and whoever else is their political target du jour.  This is not the same as actually issuing a subpoena, but the issue that they are huffing and puffing over is a clear, open-and-shut case on Executive prerogative to fire their employees, including federal prosecutors, who serve at the pleasure President anyway.  In fact, the White House offered interviews to the committee from the very people that they want to see!  Constitutionally, that’s still above and beyond what they have to do!

This is what they thought Joe McCarthy fishing for red herrings was like.
