US Judge: White House Aides Can Be Subpoenaed

Matt Apuzzo, The Associated Press: "President Bush's top advisers are not immune from Congressional subpoenas, a federal judge ruled Thursday in an unprecedented dispute between the two political branches. The House Judiciary Committee wants to question the president's chief of staff, Josh Bolten, and former legal counsel Harriet Miers, about the firing of nine US attorneys. But President Bush says they are immune from such subpoenas. They [Miers and Bolten] say Congress can't force them to testify or turn over documents. US District Judge John Bates disagreed, saying there's no legal basis for that argument and that Miers must appear before Congress. If she wants to refuse to testify, he said, she must do so in person."
