Rep. Tom Davis (R-VA), the ranking Republican on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said today he will not support the decision of Chairman Henry Waxman (D-CA) to subpoena Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, “marking the first time this year that he has broken with the committee’s top Democrat on a significant committee issue.” Apparently Davis knows everything he needs to know about the run-up to war:

“Subpoenaing Secretary [Condoleezza] Rice to discuss the Iraq-uranium issue is duplicative of multiple investigations that have already been concluded,” [Davis] said.

Davis accused [Waxman] of overstepping his bounds to call on Rice. Waxman wants her to discuss in more detail how a National Security Council aide inserted incorrect intelligence indicating that Iraq sought uranium from Africa into the President Bush’s 2003 State of the Union address.
