A Possible Davis-Rumsfeld showdown?

Congressman Tom Davis has been using his subpoena power again...this time against Donald Rumsfeld. This article talks about how executive privilige might be invoked: Davis issued the subpoena Wednesday for internal communications from Rumsfeld and eight other top military officials between Aug. 23 to Sept. 15. The committee is also considering a subpoena against the White House. McHale said the Pentagon already has turned over more than 200,000 documents, and he hoped that the e-mails would satisfy the committee. ‘‘Some of those e-mails will undoubtedly will be taken out of context,’’ said McHale, who served three terms as a House Democrat in the 1990s. ‘‘Others will be subject to legitimate criticism. But, on balance, the e-mails that we release will be comprehensive, entirely accurate and more than sufficient to enable the Congress to effectively complete the investigation.’’
