"Waxman plans hearing to issue subpoenas."
The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee announced that next Wednesday it will consider issuing four subpoeanas for the following testimony and documents:
– The testimony of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice regarding the fabricated claim that Iraq sought uranium from Niger and other issues;
— The testimony of former White House Chief of Staff Andrew Card regarding the leak of Valerie Plame Wilson’s covert identity and White House security procedures;
— RNC documents related to possible violations of the Presidential Records Act and the Hatch Act by White House officials; and
— Contacts between the White House and MZM, a federal contractor implicated in bribery charges.
More from the Committee website.
UPDATE: Waxman asks Andy Card: you’ll talk to Jon Stewart but not to me?
“On April 16,2007, you appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and discussed the leak of [former covert CIA Agent Valerie Plame] Wilson’s identity,” Waxman (D-CA) wrote to Andrew Card, the former White House Chief of Staff. “[White House Counel Fred] Fielding’s position appears to be that it is appropriate for you to discuss these matters on The Daily Show, but not before a congressional committee. You will not be surprised to learn that I take a different view of this matter.”
