A public servant - They are SERVANTS not our MASTERS as the courts would claim - has no right to privacy when it comes to the work that he/she is being paid to do.

I can see your point. Should we then join the DemocRATS in calling for Cheney to reveal the names of the people he had on his Energy Policy committee?

I believe that technically/constitutionally, the VP has executive privilege in his case. I do not know about the Senate. I expect that they also are the owners of what goes on in their chambers. The only way anything will come of this is if Republicans force the issue through the Ethics Committee. Someone with some fortitude will have to do it. Is there such a person?

Whomever has copies of the memos should release them. The Washington Post should do a big expose on the obstruction in the Senate. But that'll never happen. The Post loves leaky Leahy and the pro-death crowd on the Left.
