House Votes to Hold Bush Aides in Contempt

The House has voted to hold White House Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten and former White House counsel Harriet Miers in contempt of Congress.

The Judiciary Committee cited them for contempt last July after they refused to testify before the committee about whether eight U.S. attorneys were fired for political reasons.

The rare contempt vote sets up a constitutional showdown between Congress and the White House.
