Panel Holds Two Bush Aides in Contempt

The House Judiciary Committee voted 22-17 today to seek contempt of Congress citations against two White House figures for their refusal to cooperate with the investigation into the US Attorney scandal.

The contempt charges target White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten and former White House Counsel Harriet Miers.

The full House has to approve the plan -- but Democrats hold a 231-201 edge there. (NYT)
