Democrats May Subpoena NSA Documents

Senior House Democrats threatened Thursday to issue subpoenas to obtain secret legal opinions and other documents from the Justice Department related to the National Security Agency's domestic wiretapping program. If the Democrats take that step, it would mark the most aggressive action yet by Congress in its oversight of the wiretapping program, and could set the stage for a constitutional showdown over the separation of powers.

Senate Judiciary Committee Subpoenas NSA Spying Documents

The Senate Judiciary Committee just voted 13-3 to authorize chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) to issue subpoenas for documents related to the NSA warrantless surveillance program. Senators Arlen Specter (R-Pennsylvania), Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) voted with the Democrats on the committee to authorize the subpoenas for any legal opinions and advice the Bush administration has received regarding the NSA program.
