NY TIMES: GAO SET TO SUE WHITE HOUSE
The NEW YORK TIMES is reporting in Monday runs that the General Accounting Office will likely sue the Bush Administration to try to get documents relating to its dealings with Enron in relation to the formulation of the White House's energy policy.
TIMES scribe Elisabeth Bumiller reports that David M. Walker, the head of the GAO, "responded this evening in an interview that it was now 'highly likely' that he would file a lawsuit against the Bush administration if Mr. Cheney did not turn over the documents by the end of this week.
Of the vice president's assertion that the agency was overstepping its bounds, Mr. Walker, the comptroller general of the United States, replied, 'Talk is cheap.'"
The vice president explained the White House position on 'Fox News Sunday':
"What I object to, and what the president's objected to, and what we've told GAO we won't do, is make it impossible for me or future vice presidents to ever have a conversation in confidence with anybody without having, ultimately, to tell a member of Congress what we talked about and what was said."
If the GAO sues, it would mark the first time that the investigative arm of Congress sued another government department for not cooperating with an investigation.
