White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said Cheney is not obligated to submit to oversight by an office that safeguards classified information, as other members and parts of the executive branch are. Cheney's office has contended that it does not have to comply because the vice president serves as president of the Senate, which means that his office is not an "entity within the executive branch."Is this the same Vice President that claimed EXECUTIVE privilege to hide his energy meetings from the public?
I say lets call his bluff and subpoena him on the outing of Valerie Plame and when he claims executive privilege throw this in his face. That man is dangerous and evil and has crapped on the Constitution long enough.
