Leahy on Subpoenas

To add to Jeff's post below, Raw Story has part of Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy's statement on the subpoenas:

"The Bush-Cheney White House continues to place great strains on our constitutional system of checks and balances," Leahy said in issuing the subpoenas. "Not since the darkest days of the Nixon Administration have we seen efforts to corrupt federal law enforcement for partisan political gain and such efforts to avoid accountability."
Right fucking on.

Petulant grabbed video of Leahy on the Senate Floor reminding us that members of the administration swear an oath to uphold the Constitution, not to protect the president.
