    An interesting article in the NY Times this morning, courtesy of Neil Katyal and Joshua Geltzer.

    Precis: Chief Justice John Roberts, after being requested by a House manager such as Adam Schiff- is able to issue a subpoena on his own authority for relevant witnesses, documents or testimony; and it would take a 2/3 majority of the Senate to block it.

    Having said that, it appears that the Senate Republicans are absolutely furious with the WH and now a lot of rumbling about calling a majority vote to get John Bolton to testify anyway.
