The House Judiciary Committee, investigating the firings of nine U.S. attorneys, will be unable to finish its work if the D.C. Circuit stays an order that requires former White House counsel Harriet Miers to testify, committee general counsel Irvin Nathan argued Tuesday. He urged the panel to reject the administration's position that a stay is essential. At one point, Nathan called the position that Miers is entitled to absolute immunity "bogus" and "frivolous" -- drawing a sharp response from one judge.
