Executive Privelege Dust Up at Katrina Hearings

From Scout:

Brownie stated he is not sure if he can answer questions due to executive privelege.

Sen Collins stated she gave WH cousel Harriet Meyers the opportunity last night to assert the privelege and they did not so she has directed Brown to answer questions about who he spoke to at the White House regarding FEMA problems months prior to Katrina.

He named Josh Bolton and Andrew Card among others.

UPDATE: Patrick Rhode top FEMA official in DC as Katrina hit just testified he learned of levee break 9-10 am on Monday August 29 and he emailed the info to Homeland Security.
