On Bush's Order, Miers Defies Subpeona
If George Bush could order anyone to defy a Congressional subpeona regarding the U.S. attorney firings, it would of course be Harriet Miers, whose unabashed idolatry of the president is well-established. Even given that, the defiance of Miers - who isn't even on the Bush payroll anymore - is still quite remarkable. I always shake my head when I hear people use the term "Bush Crime Family," but it certainly seems to apply here. I haven't seen a better example of the code of omerta outside of a Scorsese gangster movie.
