Rep. Linda Sánchez Responds to Latest White House Stonewall Move

July 9, 2007
Press Release
Congresswoman Linda Sánchez, Chairwoman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Commercial and Administrative Law, released the following statement today in response to the White House's announcement that it will neither comply with Congressional subpoenas into the investigation of the mass firing of U.S. Attorneys nor explain its assertion of executive privilege.

"The White House is acting like a kid who tries to get away with something wrong by putting his hands over his eyes and saying he’s invisible. It didn’t work in pre-school, and it won’t work now.

"The White House could have ended this investigation months ago by actually fulfilling its promise to get to the facts of who made the decision to fire these U.S. Attorneys, and why these federal prosecutors were fired. Instead, the White House seems to be throwing up every stonewalling technique they know to run down the clock on their time in office."
