Dontcha just love oversight?

BobGeiger:

It's another huge week in the Senate Judiciary Committee, which we knew would constantly be the case as soon as Democrats took over and oversight of a crooked White House actually started happening.

On Tuesday, Judiciary will call FBI Director Robert Mueller in to testify on what kinds of Constitutional corners his crew has been cutting over the last few years in a hearing called "Oversight of the Federal Bureau of Investigation."

Another big day in Judiciary is Thursday when a hearing is held on "Preserving Prosecutorial Independence: Is the Department of Justice Politicizing the Hiring and Firing of U.S. Attorneys?" Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) will be grilling D. Kyle Sampson, the former Chief of Staff to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

And I like the follow-up notice for the Thursday meeting that indicates time will be allocated to "discuss the possibility of the issuance of certain subpoenas in connection with investigation into replacement of United States Attorneys."

Foreign Relations Committee: You can bring up eight nominations for a vote in one day but you still can't hide the scumbag. In addition to seven other people, Sam Fox, of Missouri, comes back to the committee to get a vote on whether he should get to be the new U.S. Ambassador to Belgium.
