Rice Signals She Will Not Testify in Response to Congressional Subpoena

Oh, really:
U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Thursday she has already answered the questions she has been subpoenaed to answer before a U.S. congressional committee and suggested she is not inclined to comply with the order.

Where in the constitution does it say she can refuse to testify before Congress:
Rice noted that she had been serving as U.S. President George W. Bush's national security adviser during the period covered by the panel's questions, and stressed the administration's position that presidential aides not confirmed by the Senate cannot be forced to testify before Congress under the doctrine of executive privilege.

But then again King George does not recognize an equal governmental authority. I guess that applies to his ministers as well.
