Bush Found About Cheney Subpoena Today

Earlier this week it was reported that Vice President Cheney will be called as a witness for the defense in the trial of Scooter Libby. According to Cheney spokesperson Lea Anne McBridge, "We've cooperated fully in this matter and we'll continue to do so."

However, during this morning's press conference, CNN's Elaine Quiano asked the President about this development.

"What is your reaction to that, is that something you'll resist?"

Bush responded that he was unaware of this development until reading the newspapers this morning.

"No, I read about it in the newspaper today, and uh, it's an interesting piece of news and that's all I'm going to comment about an ongoing case."

Why is it I knew the Vice President was being subpoenaed a day before the President did? Why was it that the President of the United States, the leader of the free world, had to read about his Vice President testifying in the newspapers? Guess the Patriot Act doesn't cover sharing information within the Executive Branch.
