The Wall Street Jrl reports here that Senator Leahy is pressing for requested information and testimony. Perhaps what is the most fascinating part of this piece is to hear that the Executive claims it needs more time to produce the items requested. Leahy thinks 2 months is enough time for them to produce the requested material.
It is interesting to see the White House claiming a need for more time. Is this portion of the executive branch, ready and willing to provide companies with this same luxury when items are subpoenaed by DOJ? Should the White House receive a preference when items are requested pursuant to subpoena?
