Bush thinks he's immune to subpoenas

Bush won't provide the documents that Congress has subpoenaed. Congress responds. Leahy:

This is a further shift by the Bush Administration into Nixonian stonewalling and more evidence of their disdain for our system of checks and balances. This White House cannot have it both ways. They cannot stonewall congressional investigations by refusing to provide documents and witnesses, while claiming nothing improper occurred.

Increasingly, the President and Vice President feel they are above the law --- in America no one is above law.

BarbinMD on DailyKos asks:
Strong words. Now the question is, what will they do about it? More words, empty threats, or action?
No bullshit compromises, please. May I remind Congress that Bush is deeply unpopular. But regardless of his popularity, letting Bush's contempt for checks and balances and rule of law slide would set an awful, craven precedent. I ask you simply to your jobs and not let the inevitable accusations of "partisan witch hunting" deter you.
