A House committee voted Wednesday to grant immunity to Monica Goodling, an aide to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. She had refused to testify, invoking her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination. The 32-6 vote by the House Judiciary Committee was part of a rapid-fire schedule Democrats set to compel Bush administration officials to testify about issues ranging from President Bush's now-discredited claim that Iraq was seeking uranium from Africa to the dismissals of eight federal prosecutors.
