The Bush administration received its first subpoenas today as the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee demanded records of White House contacts with failed energy trader Enron. The committee has been seeking the records for more than two months and the majority of Democrats say they are not willing to accept partial compliance or further delay. The White House said it does not understand why the committee chose a "confrontational" approach. NPR's David Welna reports from Capitol Hill.
