Has anyone watched KO tonite -- Charge Harriet Miers with "Inherent Contempt"
This should be good.

House can circumvent the DOJ and have the DC US Attorney prosecute and/or hold in house trial.

Turley stated that it was dangerous for Miers not showing up.

3. So, am I wrong to like "inherent comtempt", just this once? Since impeachment, as defined by the
RW'ers, is off the table. MKJ

4. Signing statement to the U.S. Constitution: The law doesn't apply to Bushco.
Honestly, why should the law to apply to anyone anymore? Follow Vitter John.

5. This really isn't a brain teaser...she took an oath to uphold ...
the Constitution, not an oath to protect bush. Congress can call her at any time, and "executive privilege" doesn't mean squat.

How this ever got so convoluted is beyond me...bush is not king nor emperor, he's a pompous ass, that's for sure...but he is not some kind of untouchable icon, and neither are those that work under him. The House can compel her to testify, she can "take the 5th", but she has to show up, or she is in contempt.

Send the Sergeant at Arms to arrest her.
