Leahy can handle the truth
It is the White House that has a problem with it. That is why the good Senator from VT. will be issuing subpeonas for various WH minions in his hearings into the US attorney firings.
The chairman, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., last week delayed a vote on the subpoenas until Thursday as the president's counsel, Fred Fielding, sought to negotiate terms. But on Sunday, Leahy said he had not met Fielding nor was he particularly open to any compromises, such as a private briefing by the administration officials.This will no doubt have the Fux Noos people and the lesser Republican FUDmeisters howling for all their worth (which isn't very much). Leahy will no doubt catch a shitstorm so send him a note of support if you can.
"I want testimony under oath. I am sick and tired of getting half-truths on this," Leahy said. "I do not believe in this, we'll have a private briefing for you where we'll tell you everything, and they don't."
