“When it comes to funding, some in Washington should spend more time responding to the warnings of terrorists like Osama bin Laden and the requests of our commanders on the ground and less time responding to the demands of MoveOn.org bloggers and Code Pink protesters.”
just got off the phone with Tracy Schmaler, a spokesperson for the
Senate Judiciary Committee’s Democratic majority. Schmaler told us it
is her understanding that — despite President Bush’s invocation of
executive privilege in regards to the testimony of former White House
staffers Sara Taylor and Harriet Miers about the ongoing U.S. Attorneys scandal — Taylor will still appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday.
Schmaler says she learned that from Taylor’s lawyer, W. Neil Eggleston,
earlier Monday afternoon. When called for confirmation by Salon,
Eggleston was unavailable. He has not yet returned a message left
As for Miers, the question of whether she will appear as scheduled
before the House Judiciary Committee Thursday is apparently still up in
the air. A spokesperson for the committee told Salon that the committee
had not yet heard anything definitive about whether Miers would appear,
and her lawyer was unavailable for comment.
Lewis Scooter Libby was sentenced to jail today in Washington D.C. for his role in covering up the illegal leaking of a C.I.A. undercover agents’ identity and lying to and misleading federal investigators from the F.B.I. and Justice Department about this activity.
