Leahy to subpoena warrantless wiretapping docs.

"Leahy to subpoena warrantless wiretapping docs."

The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled a business meeting on Thursday to authorize subpoenas for any legal opinions and advice the Bush administration has received regarding the NSA’s domestic spying program. Politico reports, “Under Judiciary Committee rules, Republicans can postpone the vote on the subpoena authorizations for a week, but Democratic insiders don’t expect Leahy will have any problem gaining approval for the subpoenas at that time.”

UPDATE: Last week, the Justice Dept. refused Leahy’s request to voluntarily turn over domestic surveillance documents for the ninth time.
