House Judiciary Committee to Vote on Granting former Justice Official Monica Goodling Immunity

(Washington, DC)-House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) scheduled a meeting of the Committee for TOMORROW, April 18, at 10:15 a.m. to consider granting immunity to ex-Department of Justice-White House Liaison Monica Goodling, in order to secure her testimony about the U.S. Attorney matter. Two-thirds of the Committee must approve immunity.

"As the White House Liaison in the Department while the US Attorney firings were planned and carried out, Ms. Goodling clearly has much to contribute to the Committee's understanding of the surrounding circumstances," Conyers said. "I am hopeful we can approve immunity so that we can schedule her to testify as soon as possible and begin to clear up the many inconsistencies and gaps surrounding this matter."

UPDATE: The Judiciary Committee is also currently holding a hearing: "Executive Compensation in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Cases: How Much Is Too Much?"
