Owls Fly at Midnight...Subpoenas Fly in the Morning Light


Breaking on CNN:

Two congressional panels are issuing subpoenas to two former White House staffers to testify about their roles in the firings of eight federal prosecutors, officials familiar with the investigation said today.

Newsreader is saying the names Miers and Taylor. More after this commercial break...

(the cries of "Heh. Indeedy" echo about the landscape, along with a roar of "'Bout fuckin' time!" from deep in the wilds of Tennessee.)

What about the subpoena for the email and IT folks over at RNChq?? Shouldn't someone answer for a completely insecure email network being used to subvert Records Acts and also the elusive Classified information dealy-bob. You know, like CIA operative names and other classified tidbits which might have been shuffling around on RNC email servers outsourced to private contractors. (Maybe even ones in the more developed wilds of Tennessee)

A choice quote from Whitewash House flak Tony Fratto:

"The committees can easily obtain the facts they want without this confrontational approach by simply accepting our offer for documents and interviews, [Trust us!]" Fratto said. "But it's clear that Senator Leahy and Representative Conyers are more interested in creating media drama than getting the facts."

"Fooled me once, shame on you. Fooled me twice, shame on me," has never been truer than in this White House.

Gone With the Wind before they get there, legal papers in hand, to find our pal Jeffy standing with an electric cord in hand which he had just then pulled out of its socket, saying "Oops" with a little smile on his face.

I am not declaring "omg this is the smoking gun!|!|!" just sayin', every step gets us closer.

(I will however Grant you that your Hardee quote is one even the Pope could easily overlook in the Forrest, but I will Polk you until you have Paine if you Dew(ey) such a thing again. I am not Lyon about this and no Ransom will save you.)

I've written about Holtzman-Vogel sharing some web space with and Smartech according to the "" tool. I just don't know how to precisely say in laymans terms what Robtex is telling me.

You seem to be expert in these matters -- could you explain here or pay a visit over to the TPM Cafe thread I started a while ago. MSM interested.

Lambert could probably explain this better than I can. But in essence it looks up any address you give it and tells you things like the IP address and--this is where we found out what all interesting things Smartech hosts--other addresses registered to the same IP.

If you want to look it over for yourself go here: Scroll down to the bottom of the page if you want to be slightly creeped out, it will tell you your OWN IP and various other data associated with the means and route your query used to get there.

That's the way I understand it anyway. I hope if I have bollixed this up trying to put it in non-geekspeak one of our more techy people will straighten the matter out.

Normally, an ISP is an ISP. Who cares who else is hosted there? You Google, check the reviews, pay your $6.95 a month. Whatever.

Unless, that is, you have, er, special needs.

And knowing Rove as we do, there's no possible way he'd either (a) work with any firm that under mob control (the Republican mob, that is), or (b) surrender real control over his information.

Lie down with dogs, Smartech...
