Brownie To Talk?

Ex-FEMA Director Michael Brown is now saying that he wants to turn over his correspondence with Bush to congressional investigators unless Bush specifically tells him not to and agrees to cover his legal fees.  Up until now, he’s been respecting the Bush Administration invocation of "executive privilege".

"Unless there is specific direction otherwise from the president," writes Brown’s lawyer, "including an assurance the president will provide a legal defense to Mr. Brown if he refuses to testify as to these matters, Mr. Brown will testify if asked about particular communications."

It will be interesting to see the White House respond.
