The Committee voted 22-17 to issue contempt citations against Harriet Miers and Josh Bolten. Now the recommendation goes to the full House, with a vote likely to take place after the August recess. It was a party-line vote, and I must say I’m disappointed in the Republicans on the Committee, who continue to enable Bush’s efforts to avoid actual oversight.
You know, I think I’d like to see Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid cancel that August recess and keep Congress in session while W takes a month off in Crawford and the Iraqi Parliament heads for villas on the Mediterranean. If our troops have to keep fighting, maybe our government should keep working.
