Michael Moore just got served with a subpoena regarding the trip he took to Cuba while filming Sicko. He got served backstage just before appearing on Jay Leno – on the show, he mentioned the subpoena.
The story doesn’t say what agency requested or issued it – presumably the Treasury Department, which has already hassled some of the Ground Zero responders who went with him (see this thread).
What will happen now?
Why are they pursuing this? (Not because this Admin/DoJ takes all possible violations of federal law seriously, to be sure – they’ve already made it very clear where they stand on that. ) They’re just going to make Moore a martyr and give him free publicity – and spotlight public attention, not only on the health care issue, but on the policy of restricting travel to Cuba.
