Brownie May Tell All About Katrina
Disgraced former FEMA chief Michael Brown says that he is willing to show Congressional investigators the emails he exchanged with George Bush during the Hurricane Katrina catastrophe.
"Unless there is specific direction otherwise from the president," writes Brown's lawyer, "including an assurance the president will provide a legal defense to Mr. Brown if he refuses to testify as to these matters, Mr. Brown will testify if asked about particular communications." [CNN]
Josh Marshall thinks that Brownie is turning on Bush. After all, Congress can't demand those letters because communications between a president and his FEMA chief are protected by executive privilege. It seems that Brownie is taking a little initiative for a change.
