I’m guessing he’ll cite the William Jefferson and Tom Feeney precedent and ignore this and then Dannehy will hit a wall. But for the moment, at least, Pete’s been served (h/t scribe):

A federal grand jury has subpoenaed records of former Republican Senator Pete Domenici of New Mexico.


The grand jury subpoena for some of Domenici’s records has been confirmed by two private attorneys who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not representing the former senator.

Domenici’s attorney, K. Lee Blalack, has declined to comment.

So long as Domenici can shield stuff through speech and debate, he can probably protect Bush without too much personal downside.
