7. If they ignore this letter Specter will have no choice but to go along with contempt
Think about it, where does this leave Specter? If the White house simply renews it demand for no hearing at all, which Leahy apparently will not accept, then Specter will be forced to join in the Contempt citation and if he goes that way how many other Republican Senators will feel obliged to follow their senior leadership from the Judiciary Committee?

One step closer to impeachment or resignation.
