This Week's Senate Committee Schedule

It's all about one name: Alberto Gonzales. Squirm, baby, squirm. Bob Geiger: The Senate Armed Services Committee will hold some interesting meet

It's all about one name: Alberto Gonzales. Squirm, baby, squirm.

Bob Geiger:

The Senate Armed Services Committee will hold some interesting meetings this week dealing with the way the Bush administration has decimated the Army and Marine Corps. There will be hearings on Tuesday to examine "whether the Army and Marine Corps are properly sized, organized, and equipped to respond to the most likely missions over the next two decades while retaining adequate capability to respond to all contingencies along the spectrum of combat."

On Wednesday, Armed Services looks at issues affecting support for military families in a hearing about "quality of life and family support programs to assist families of Active Duty, National Guard, and Reserve military personnel."

Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) and the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee will look into the controversy surrounding subprime mortgages.

But, of course, all eyes this week will be on the Judiciary Committee Tuesday as Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-VT) swears in U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales to get to the bottom of the shady personnel dealings at the Justice Department.
