Congress has unleashed a flurry of subpoenas to the Administration to kick off their promised investigations. But it appears House Judiciary Committee subcommittee on commercial and administrative law Chair Linda Sanchez needs to spend a bit of time reading the Constitution before she proceeds further. Her first target is the Administration's firing of a number of U.S. Attorneys. She's explained why this is such an important bit of business. From The Hill:
She went on to stress the importance of a judiciary branch that is separate and independent from the executive branch.
"When the executive branch is interfering in the justice systems - in other countries we call that corruption," she said. "It's very troubling to me that there seems to be this undercurrent."
It is very troubling to me that the head of a House Judiciary Committee subcommittee thinks the U.S. Attorneys are part of the Judiciary branch, rather than the Executive branch but then it may be I'm working from an old, outdated civics book.
