Well, it looks like Henry Waxman isn’t going to wait around for HJC to follow my suggestions on getting the Bush and Cheney transcripts.

From the Oversight Committee:

Oversight Committee Subpoenas Justice Department for Plame Documents
Today, the Oversight Committee issued a subpoena to Attorney General Mukasey compelling the production of FBI interview reports of Vice President Cheney and President Bush and other documents regarding the outing of covert CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson.

Update: the due date on the subpoena is June 23. It asks for the same materials requested in Waxman’s June 3 letter.
