WASHINGTON – Secretary of State Rice doesn’t need to tell Congress what she knows about President Bush’s claims Iraq was seeking uranium in Africa, because “the questions … have been answered,” her legal staff said yesterday.
“I hope we can work together over the next week to schedule a voluntary appearance by you before the committee,” Waxman wrote to Rice on Tuesday.
“That would eliminate the need for the use of any compulsory process.” …
Waxman also threatened yesterday to subpoena former Bush chief of staff Andrew Card, whom the committee wants to talk to about the leak of CIA agent Valerie Plame’s identity to the media.
White House counsel Fred Fielding has declined to let Card testify.
“Mr. Fielding’s position appears to be that it is appropriate for you to discuss these matters on ‘The Daily Show’ but not before a congressional committee,” Waxman wrote to Card yesterday.
“You will not be surprised to learn that I take a different view of this matter.”
