Raw Story reports that House Judiciary Committee chair John Conyers (D-MI) is “disappointed” that the US Justice Department failed to comply with a subpoena that the Congressman issued last week. The subpoena had requested documents about the firing of eight US attorneys.
According to Raw Story, Conyers has threatened that there will be “consequences” because of this failure to comply by Justice. Justice sent over a few documents last week, but they didn’t send everything that was requested, and much of the information was redacted even though the subpoena asked for complete versions.
The Bush administration has refused to comply with the rule of law before. Why would we suspect anything different now?
The real question is what will Conyers do about it?
