The House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed Atty. Gen. Michael B. Mukasey for transcripts of interviews with President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and former presidential advisor Karl Rove during the federal inquiry into the leak of then-CIA agent Valerie Plame's identity.

The subpoena requests all documents from the office of former Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald relating to interviews of Bush, Cheney and their aides that were conducted outside the presence of a grand jury investigating the leak. One of Cheney's aides, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, was convicted of perjury in the case, but his prison sentence was commuted by Bush.
