Filmmaker Michael Moore told Jay Leno on Thursday that the Bush administration has served him with a subpoena for going to Cuba to film parts of his newest movie, "Sicko."
Moore, who made an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," said he found out about the subpoena while working at his network's studios in Burbank, Calif.

Geez, he handed them the evidence to prosecute him.
He’ll probably make a movie about it and use it as propaganda about the so-called fascist state in which he chooses to live.
But now that it's been served, is he going to eat it?
Forgot to add:
Subpoena? They should have handed him a one-way ticket.
Of course, the fact that he hasn't disappeared yet kinda pokes holes in that theory, but since when has fact mattered to the anti-USA left?
Sounds to me like Moore hasn’t even seen the Subpoena himself. Think I’ll take this with a grain of salt till I see proof.
Yeah, the guy’s a congenital liar. I’ll believe it when I see proof.
I am always amazed to hear from the far lefties about how the USA is a fascist state and Bush is Hitler.....and they say it in the same sentence!
Since he apparently eats anything he is ever served, I doubt you will ever see it.
Deportation papers would be better.
Can you imagine how much it will cost the government to feed this thing if he goes to jail.
they would need a special appropriations bill...
My sister told me the story of a friend of hers who was a landlord in New York City. It is virtually impossible to evict anyone (legally). So what he would do is go to a stationery store, get some official looking stationery with gold seals and all and knock on the door. When the deadbeat tennant opened the door, he’d “serve” them with the papers and proceed to have his buddies throw their furniture and belongings on the sidewalk.
Once a tennant called the cops. The cops asked if he had a copy of a rent check, he answers, “I don’t pay rent”. The cops told him it was civil matter and departed.
I’m just wondering if some jokester didn’t pull a fast one on one of the fatman’s lackeys. ‘Sides, I thought a subpoena had to be served in person.
Anything Mikey says, writes or films has to be taken with a gigantic, Mikey Mooron-sized grain of salt. He’s probably just trying to gin up publicity for his latest bomb of a crockumentary yet again.
Can you say ‘Publicity Stunt’?
The scariest tactic ever used was an IRS audit?
How exactly does the President issue a subpoena????????
He is probably lying. That is what he does best!
No, the U. S. government served you a subpoena AHole!
Oh yeah, I forgot you think you are above the law. Go back to Canada if you don’t like the choices made by a majority of American voters.
WRONG fat boy!! It's because of the illegal levels of nauseating, sulfurous flatulence you are spewing into the atmosphere. Your diet has placed you in violation of the Clean Air Act - Title I, Part A, Emissions. So shut your pie hole and get yourself some Beano.
Only in his dreams!
I also find it interesting that he is claiming BUSH ADMINISTRATION did it. He actually thinks Bush ordered it?
In general this story is too vague to even know what is going on.
But we can dream, can’t we? :D
As someone pointed out, I’m quite sure you have to PERSONALLY RECEIVE the subpoena, literally in-hand.
When is he going to make the movie, “Liar”?
Or, better yet, “Fatso Liar”?
His next film is “Fatso - Mr. Moore goes to Washington”.
I’m sure it’s true that Moore is claiming this. But I call BS on the president having a subpoena drawn up.. Moore is obviously distraught at the failure of sicko and is grasping at straws.
and....Moore is an absolute IDIOT.
and....Moore is an absolute IDIOT.
and....Moore is an absolute IDIOT.
“Michael Moore Says Bush Administration Has Served Him With Subpoena”
Unfortunately he thought they said Lasagna and ate it.
‘Yeah, the guys a congenital liar. Ill believe it when I see proof.’
Yep, and Jay Leno has become a congenital enabler.
Not quite true. I served papers for awhile and as long as someone will accept and sign for it it is considered served.
This in in the recipients home tho.
But the way it sounds here, maybe it didn’t even get to 1 of his many homes, though?
The press including Fox is simply too willing to report every and anything this fool says without a scintilla of reportage.
the only thing better than al gore flying around in a private jet telling me to use less fuel
is fat mike moore going around telling me I need him and Hillary to be healhy
Not really. He's making a ton of money off this sort of thing, and I'm sure the subpoena comment was thrown out there to keep his latest "documentary" on the radar a little longer.
U.S. fines citizens for travel to Cuba

From Lucia Newman
CNN Havana Bureau
HAVANA, Cuba (CNN) — Until recently, the biggest dilemma for American tourists visiting Cuba was how to get cigars past United States Customs. Now the problem is how to get themselves past customs.
For the last few years, U.S. authorities had basically turned a blind eye to the tens of thousands of Americans who come illegally to see this forbidden fruit of the Caribbean. But no more.
On President George W. Bush’s orders, the Treasury Department has begun an energetic campaign to track down and punish Americans who defy U.S. travel restrictions to the communist-run island, the only country in the world off-limits to most Americans.
Donna Schultz, a retired social worker from Chicago, Illinois, traveled to Cuba via Canada for a bike tour. On her way home through Toronto, American immigration and customs officials were waiting.
“This woman was leafing through my passport very carefully, and she said to me, ‘Have you been anyplace else besides Canada?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, it’s pretty obvious that I had my passport stamped in Cuba.’”
A couple of months later, she received a notice from the Treasury Department of a $7,500 fine.
‘Moral statement’ or undemocratic?
Since May, hundreds of Americans who didn’t even have their passports stamped have received these notices, with fines that can go as high as $50,000.
The law forbids unauthorized Americans from spending money there, effectively preventing them from traveling. Critics say that’s a violation of the First and Fifth amendments, which guarantee freedom of expression and other individual rights.
“It’s repugnant to everything that we as Americans think,” said United States Rep. Charles Rangel, a Democrat from New York. “You know, this type of behavior is the behavior that you would expect from a communist dictatorship that wants to keep its people at home.”
The White House argues that American tourist dollars only help Fidel Castro stay in power, with Bush calling the sanctions “a moral statement.”
“As someone pointed out, Im quite sure you have to PERSONALLY RECEIVE the subpoena, literally in-hand.”
You do in California. I have to hand serve deponents and trial witnesses all the time.
A subpoena for what? Why didn’t he bring it?
SpongeMike Sweatpants is an idiot - trying to drum up support for his movie that’s tanking at the box office.
Nope...no matter what he does he is still an IDIOT.
