Not that I’m recommending that, of course. We liberals believe in the rule of law, and would never consider such a thing.
But it does indicate that the Administration doesn’t think of them as "just pieces of paper" when they hand them to liberal filmmakers. so, they shouldn’t be allowed to get away with ignoring their importance when Congress issues them…
Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Michael Moore announced that the Bush Administration has subpoenaed him in the wake of his recent trip to Cuba on the July 26 episode of NBC’s "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" (Monday-Friday, 11:35 p.m. – 12:37 a.m. ET). "I haven’t even told my own family yet." Moore began, "I was just informed when I was back there with Jay that the Bush administration has now issued a subpoena for me."
The trip was part of his new film "Sicko" which tackles the question of affordable health care in the United States. Moore, who brought 9/11 rescue workers with him on his excursion, explains the reason for his trip, saying: "Took them to Guantanamo Bay because I heard the Al Qaeda Terrorists we have in the camps there, detained, are receiving free dental, medical, eye care, the whole deal, and our own 9/11 rescue workers can’t get that in New York City."
In a continued effort to help the 9/11 rescue workers, Moore stated that on August 11, the Weinstein Company will be donating 11 percent of the box office receipts from "Sicko" to "help these workers and the other workers who need help," said Moore.
