The case should serve as a lesson for all who are inclined to dismiss the hearings as a partisan show -- and evaluate them on the basis of which side has produced the best soundbites. The same week THE WEEKLY STANDARD story appeared, Thompson's committee subpoenaed both Green and Lehman Brothers. The evidence they have gathered demonstrates how the Senate investigation is producing real information. And after Washington's earlier statements to the press -- incomplete at best -- it will be interesting to hear his answers when investigators with subpoena power ask questions about stories we thought we already knew.
