House Judiciary Committee prepares to subpoena Mukasey.


Yesterday, a House Judiciary subcommittee voted 5-2 to authorize a subpoena to Attorney General Michael Mukasey. The subpoena regards “records concerning the Valerie Plame Wilson investigation, allegations of selective prosecution, the New Hampshire phone jamming scandal, and the replacement of Minnesota’s U.S. Attorney.” House Judiciary Committee chairman John Conyers (D-MI) also sent a letter to Mukasey telling him to stop stonewalling a GAO investigation into the politicization of the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division.
