Judge orders Cheney to come clean
The battle the White House hoped everyone had forgotten has just taken a REAL interesting turn. A judge has ordered the White House to release key documents about its energy task force, or declare executive privilidge. The punchline? The deadline for turning over those documents is Nov. 5 -- Election Day.
Now, I have no doubt that the White House will try and delay by appealing, but it looks as though the administration is on increasingly thin ice. Check out this positively Bushian exchange:
Coffin said the government would likely ask the judge to stay his own order before the Nov. 5 deadline. He said the government wants enough time to be able to ask an appellate court to intervene if necessary.So, they've made a review, but they haven't made a review because its unconstitutional to make a review. Got it? Good. Neither do I. Posted October 18, 2002 09:19 AM | Comments (6)
