This could probably fit better in another forum, but in my attempts to finish this paper I have looming over my head due around 21 hours from now, I have come across a road block. The paper itself is on the corruptibility and constitutionality of the Congressional subpoena, and it occurred to me that, although I can easily find the clause which allows for Congress to have such a power in the constitution (Article I Section 8 Clause 18), I can't find where the judicial branch was given such a power in the first place! Is this power implied by the word "judicial"? It's wonderful that I can write 12 pages full of content on the issue yet I can't identify something so fundamental!

You should click over to Greg's law forums (link at the top of the page). Don't know how active it is, but they're the experts.
