It looks like tomorrow will be something of an ousted prosecutor marathon on Capitol Hill.
Four of the fired prosecutors will be testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow morning before heading over to the House to testify in the afternoon.
(Update: In anticipation of tomorrow's hearing, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) put out the following statement: "The plot continues to thicken. No one believes anymore these U.S. Attorneys were fired for any good reason and we will start to uncover the real truth at our hearing on Tuesday.")
Last Friday, the Senate committee, following on the heels of the House's issuance of subpoenas to the four, sent out letters to six of the eight ousted prosecutors, requesting their testimony and informing them that the commmittee would consider issuing subpoenas if they did not accept. That strategy seems to have worked.
The four prosecutors who were already subpoenaed by the House (San Diego's Carol Lam, Seattle's John McKay, New Mexico's David Iglesias and Arkansas' Bud Cummins) have accepted the invitation and will be testifying at 10 AM tomorrow, according to a spokesperson for Sen. Schumer. Those same prosecutors will be testifying before the House at 2 PM.
The Senate Judiciary Committee will consider issuing subpoenas to the other two prosecutors (Nevada's Daniel Bogden and Arizona's Paul Charlton) on Thursday.
Update: Well, it looks like we'll be hearing from all six prosecutors tomorrow. The House Judiciary Committee has scheduled a meeting tomorrow morning to vote on issuing subpoenas to both Bogden and Charlton. Assuming that the vote goes as it did last week, the two will testify along with the others tomorrow afternoon.
