from a friend on another discussion group......
They can be ignored if there was a party line vote. (Using this reasoning, any subpoena can be ignored if your own party votes against it. Essentially, no democrat will ever be subpoenad again.)
If all documents related to the company (Solyndra) involved, it's a "fishing expedition." (A fishing expedition would be to request documents for companies other than Solyndra.)
Documents include news clips. (Interesting ploy. Expand the definition of documents to include things such as news clips, which would be unreasonable if they were available elsewhere.)
There isn't any need to produce more documents because they ones they already produced didn't reveal anything illegitimate. (This argument is great. Just turn over anything that isn't incriminating and claim there isn't any need to look at what's being hidden.)[/color] bluelaugh:
