I heard Sam Seder quote a statistic during the "Majority Report" on the number of subpoenas issued the Clinton administration vs. those issued the Bush administration by congressional oversight committees and simply couldn't believe it. So I looked it up and found this article from The Boston Globe entitled "Congress Reduces it's Oversight Role" from November of 2005.
But the agenda was different during the Clinton administration. The government reform panel alone, for example, issued 1,052 subpoenas related to investigations of the Clinton administration and the Democratic National Committee from 1997 to 2002, and only 11 subpoenas related to allegations of Republican abuse.
Notice the writers parse the comparisons by using the term "Republican abuse" instead of "Bush administration" abuse. One can only assume they aren't comparing the number of subpoenas between the two adminstrations because there were no subpoenas issued to the Bush administration during that time period.
Er, I mean interesting.
