This Week's Senate Committee Schedule

Hmmm....very interesting.....

Bob Geiger:

Patrick Leahy (D-VT) and the Senate Judiciary Committee will get another crack at Attorney General Alberto Gonzales as he appears to testify on Tuesday. Leahy last week sent Gonzales a sneak peak at some of the questions he intends to ask to get "clarification" on some of Gonzales's hazy recollections of what went down in the political firings of eight federal prosecutors.

The word I get is that Leahy will at first stick with questions easy for Gonzales to be truthful about, such as "what day of the week follows Tuesday?"

John Kerry (D-MA) will chair a meeting of the Foreign Relations Committee called "Pakistan's Future: Building Democracy, Or Fueling Extremism?" Not that Team Bush cares, but it's possible the subject of Osama bin Laden's whereabouts might come up.

Barack Obama's S. 453, a bill "to prohibit deceptive practices in Federal elections" will be examined in the Judiciary Committee while the Rules and Administration Committee will have a hearing to get testimony relevant to S. 1487, the Ballot Integrity Act.
