WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas),chairman of the Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee, made the following statement Tuesday regarding efforts by Senate Democrats:
“It’s clear from this political stunt that Senate Democrats will go to extraordinary and unprecedented measures to obstruct the business of the American people. Because the Democrats have no ideas or agenda of their own, they’ve made an awkward attempt at changing the subject. Phase II of the pre-Iraq war intelligence investigation is and has been moving forward, but it’s a difficult and time consuming process—in other words, it’s not something that can be accomplished by tantrums.
“It is my sincere hope that they will stop the games, and return to the business of the Senate.”
