Watergategate Update: Will Duke Make A Cameo Reappearance?

By Brian Zick
TPM reader DK posts here on an AP report detailing how Duke Cunningham - who had a seat on the House Intelligence Committee - "took advantage of secrecy and badgered congressional aides to help slip items into classified bills that would benefit him and his associates."

DK follows up with the story that the Justice Department, which has a number of potential prosecutions pending in relation to Cunningham, is resisting efforts by House Intel Chair Pete Hoekstra to interview Cunningham in advance of these possible cases. So Hoekstra is considering subpoenaing Cunningham. Which could - purely by coincidence of course - seriously screw up the DoJ cases.
