I have a question:

When there is a Senator that is breaking the law, doesn't the Executive Branch have the right to subpoena that Senator to the Judiciary Branch?

My meaning is this:

Senator Clinton, under orders from PP Clinton, had Sandy Burglar steal and destroy documents from the National Archives, so wouldn't this constitute a Executive Branch subpoena?

The only thing I can think of is that President Bush can request that the Justice Department begin a criminal investigation. The Justice Department will then issue subpoenas as needed. I guess then that that would be considered an executive branch subpoena. Most likely I am wrong, and someone with legal knowledge will be along shortly to give me a legal body slam.
