In so doing it triggers legal or statutory protections for the witness, among those protections is that nothing can be done to cause harm or death to this individual. Members of Congress went to the U.S. Attorney in DC to ask for a temporary restraining order to be issued by a judge, which protects Terri Schiavo from having her life support, including her feeding and hydration tubes, removed...

  • Let's say the subpoenas get issued, and then violated. The violators are then in contempt of congress. Who will decide that case? The judicial system. But wait -- the judicial system is looking to maintain checks and balances. It's not going to empower the other two branches. Verdict: not guilty. The violators will have nothing to fear, legally speaking.

  • It's not quite that simple. Judge George Greer would still be required to testify, under oath. And you know that the Committees are going to be a lot broader in their testimonial witness list than Judge Greer was. The only thing he could hope for is the Supreme Court of the U.S. to rule that Congress cannot subpoena a State Circuit Court Judge - THAT is not going to happen!
