Sarah Palin's Discovery Issue

Troopergate, as the investigation has been termed by press and politics, raises the question of whether Sarah Palin abused her power as Governor.  A lawyer is now representing her. See Lisa Demer, Anchorage Daily News, Private lawyer hired to represent Palin in Monegan inquiry. And her lawyer wants the discovery from the individual appointed by the legislature to do the investigation, but this lawyer is also saying that this matter should be handled by the state's 3-person personnel board.  Are you entitled to discovery from the jurisdiction that you are claiming does not have jurisdiction?  And then there is the issue of the subpoenas.  Or will all the witnesses now be cooperating? Wall Street Jrl, Washington Wire, Troopergate’ Subpoena Showdown May Be Averted.
