Here we go again:
Senate subpoenas White House over wiretapping
The Senate committee investigating the Bush administration's controversial domestic wiretapping program subpoenaed the White House, Vice President Dick Cheney's office and the Justice Department today for information regarding their legal justification for the warrantless secret surveillance.[...]
Legal experts suggested today that the administration would fight or ignore these subpoenas too, throwing the issue into federal court, perhaps even the Supreme Court. The outcome, they said, could be a kind of out-of-court compromise that gives lawmakers at least some insight into the legal machinations surrounding the top-secret National Security Agency program.[...]
...Leahy told lawyers for President Bush, Cheney and Atty. Gen. Alberto R. Gonzales that attempts to get senior administration officials to testify before Congress on the wiretapping issue "have been met with a consistent pattern of evasion and misdirection."[...]
"We're aware of the committee's action and will respond appropriately," Fratto said. "It's unfortunate that congressional Democrats continue to choose the route of confrontation."

Fratto said the so-called terrorist surveillance program was "lawful, limited, safeguarded and — most importantly — effective in protecting American citizens from terrorist attacks."
They have until July 18th to comply. Of course, why would they? Those bullies can't push them around! Where do they get off thinking they can challenge Rogue Nation Dick and Gonzo the WonderDork? Off with their heads!

Oh, and just in case anyone forgets: 911, 911, 911.

Another subpoena? Just toss it in the shredder with the Constitution.
