What Fresh Hell Is This?

Checks and Balances, Cheney Style!

Yesterday at a press conference, Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) said this:

In fact, we were about to issue subpoenas then and one of the senators came to our meeting and said that the vice president had met with the Republican senators and told them they were not allowed to issue subpoenas.

Not quite sure that’s my understanding of the separation of powers, but it seemed to work at that time.

It's about 3/4 of the way through the video at Think Progress.
