Iraq Report, Aide Testimony Make Busy Week on Hill

Some members of Congress are asking for a pullout of U.S. troops in Iraq, but they are still falling short of votes. President Bush has said he would veto such a move.

The president is also butting heads with Congress over executive power. He took the position that two aides did not have to answer questions about the firings of eight U.S. attorneys.

With the defense spending bill, the Iraq report and the testimony of a former White House aide on the U.S. attorney firings, it has been a very busy week on Capitol Hill.
