Conyers and Sanchez Confirm Miers Will Show for Thursday Hearings
Jesse Lee at The Gavel reports:
Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Jr. and Commercial and Administrative Law Subcommittee Chairwoman Linda Sánchez confirmed that former White House counsel Harriet Miers will attend Thursday’s hearing concerning the US Attorney firings. The lawmakers also announced that because the Republican National Committee (RNC) has failed to agree to voluntarily turn over all the emails relevant to the investigation, the subcommittee will vote to authorize a subpoena for those materials following Miers’ testimony on Thursday.Paul Kiel at TPM Muckraker says Miers will be invoking Bush's claim of Executive Privilege, but Conyers and Sanchez want her to be at the hearings anyway.
