Constitutional Showdown: Congress and the White House clash over the U.S. attorney firings and the war in Iraq. While the White House offered private interviews with key aides this week, the U.S. Senate is demanding full public testimony, under oath and threatening subpoenas. Will Karl Rove and Harriet Miers have to sit before Congress? And how much longer can the attorney general weather the storm?
Additionally, the U.S. House passed a measure this week to withdraw troops from Iraq by the fall of 2008 but the president says the bill has "no chance of becoming law." What is the next move from Capitol Hill? We'll speak to the No. 2 Senate Republican, Sen. Trent Lott and an influential Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
Our panel will discuss the impact of the John Edwards cancer revelations as well as the passage of the House Democrats' Iraq resolution. Joining us will be: Brit Hume of FOX News, Bill Kristol of the Weekly Standard, Juan Williams of National Public Radio, and Nina Easton of Fortune Magazine.
And another potentially explosive scandal with the Justice Department and its handling of a landmark lawsuit against tobacco companies. The former lead prosecutor is blowing the whistle with claims she was told to weaken the charges and alter key witness testimony. Did politics override justice? Former Justice Department Prosecutor Sharon Eubanks speaks to Chris.
Plus, our power player of the week: Kenneth Fisher. His foundation provides on base housing for families of hospitalized soldiers and veterans.
