Senate Judiciary Committee Report on Contempt Resolutions

The Senate Judiciary Committee just released a report (with minority views) to accompany the resolutions finding Karl Rove and Josh Bolton in Contempt of Congress for failing to appear and testify before the Committee in its investigation into the politicized dismissal of nine U.S. Attorneys.

The Committee web-site has a time-line of events, with links; the Committee Report is here.  The section on Executive Privilege (section V. of the Report) starts on page 13; separation-of-powers issues run throughout.

I posted on similar issues in the House investigation and Committee on the Judiciary v. Miers and Bolton here.
