Phone-Jamming Case Heats Up

From Holden:

From the Senate Majority Project.

This morning, Hillsborough Superior Court Judge Philip Mangones granted the New Hampshire Democratic Party’s motion to take sworn depositions and discovery from the White House and top DC Republican operatives in the civil suit arising from the 2002 phone jamming scandal.

Those named in the motion include former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie, former White House political director (and current RNC Chairman) Ken Mehlman, and Terry Nelson, a top strategist in the political operation of Sen. John McCain.

Judge Phillip Mangones also denied the Republicans motion to postpone the trial for the civil suit. The trial is currently scheduled to commence on November 27, 2006. The Republicans had asked the court to continue the trial until a later date.

Ken Mehlman on the witness stand? Be still my beating heart!
