Congress vs. the White House -- spygate heats up

Make sure to check out this piece in Newsweek on Congress's growing concern over Bush's domestic eavesdropping program.

Key passage: "It is not yet clear how the public feels about warrantless wiretapping. As usual, the answer depends on the question. Asked if they approve of government eavesdropping on U.S. citizens, most people say no; asked if they approve of eavesdropping to catch terrorists, most people say yes. More-sophisticated polls show a roughly even split in opinion, so it's hard to know how the issue will cut in the 2006 elections. But there is no question that the solons of Capitol Hill -- and, increasingly, those in the Republican Party -- are growing restless and ready to challenge the authority of the Bush White House."

I previously wrote about Gonzales's SJC testimony here and here.
