Seconding Sen. Dianne Feinstein's (D-CA) call
to subpoena the ousted U.S. attorneys, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said on the Senate floor that they would be willing to tell their side of the story to the Senate if subpoenaed.
From his remarks:
...frankly Mr. President, [Iglesias' accusation reported by McClatchy] comes as no surprise to me. And that is because David Iglesias, the US attorney, told my staff the same thing the day before, and asked in fact, that he be brought here to Washington... and was willing, rather, to be brought here under the power fo subpoena to tell his story. We have inquired of the fired US attorneys and the overwhelming majority do want to tell more, but feel honorbound not to do it except if they were brought here under the power of subpoena to Washington.
Schumer added that he'd already spoken to Senate Judiciary Chairman Pat Leahy (D-VT) and that they were "examining how that can be accomplished."
