Two Subpoenas and a Funeral
FireDogLake's Jane Hamsher is getting crazy with the subpoenas:
Last August over 1250 people were arrested for protesting in front of the White House over the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, but the government only pursued charges against one person: Lt. Dan Choi. This Wednesday at 11am there will be a pre-trial hearing in DC Superior Court to determine whether Choi can offer a defense of selective prosecution by the government, and First Amendment protection for his right of free speech.
Former Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was served with a subpoena to testify at the hearing while on his way to a ball game over the weekend. Last week the Department of Justice accepted service for Valerie Jarrett, Senior Adviser to the President.
I for one would love to see Gibbs take the stand and swear to tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth, mostly because I've always been a big fan of spontaneous human combustion.
