Specter had threatened to subpoena executives of the major phone companies to get them to testify about their cooperation with the NSA. But in an informal conversation, one company lawyer told Specter the executives wouldn't be able to testify about any classified information. Specter said Cheney told the committee the restriction would apply to everyone the senators want to question.Let me get this right. A United States Senator can't be given classified information that an executive in a damn phone company has access to?
Oh, I forgot, its an executive, as in Executive Branch.
"I yield to no man or woman on pressing this administration on these issues," he (Specter) said.
Excuse me, Senator, you already have.
