Washington, D.C. (AHN) – U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy is poised to bring contempt charges against the White House, the Vice President’s office and the U.S. Department of Justice if they flout the subpoena that the Senate Judiciary Committee issued last week.
Leahy, a Vermont Democrat and chairman of the powerful committee, is leading the Senate investigation into the firings of eight U.S. attorneys, which critics say were politically motivated.
Speaking Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Leahy said, “They have taken the attitude at the, at the White House that somehow they’re above the law….That’s a Nixonian attitude, and it’s wrong.”
To the tune of She’s a Lady written by Paul Anka (Who knew?):
Well, we won’t be nonchalant,
These are not the guys we want, this bunch of losers,
So let’s put them in their place,
They’re a national disgrace, liars, abusers.
Patrick Leahy, whoa, whoa, whoa, Patrick Leahy,
All my hopes lie with Patrick Leahy, Patrick Leahy’s so fine.
