Asking for an explanation if the new subpoena deadline isn't met is simply NOT acceptable

c'mon, congress, stop stalling... let's get the constitutional crisis underway... every day you delay is another day bushco continues to trash the foundations of our republic...
“You ignored the subpoena, did not come forward today, did not produce the documents and did not even offer an explanation for your noncompliance,” the senators wrote in a lettter to Alberto Gonzales today. “Your action today is in defiance of the Committee’s subpoena without explanation of any legal basis for doing so.” (You can read the letter here.)

The senators set a new deadline, this Friday at May 18, 10 AM. If the Justice Department does not respond to the subpoena, the senators ask that they at least explain why they're not responding "so that the Chairman and the Committee can assess any objections to the subpoena or privileges claimed by the Department."

"The Committee intends to get to the truth," they conclude.

get your respective congressional asses in gear, please... the time for explanations, assessments, objections and privileges is long past...
