RENZI, ET AL Mr. REID (for himself and Mr. McConnell) submitted the following resolution; which was considered and agreed to: S. Res. 114 Whereas, in the case of United States v. Renzi, et al., Case No. 08-212, pending in Arizona Federal district court, the prosecution and defense have requested the production of documents and employee testimony from the offices of Senator John McCain and former Senator Jon Kyl; Whereas, by the privileges of the Senate of the United States and Rule XI of the Standing Rules of the Senate, no evidence under the control or in the possession of the Senate may, by the judicial or administrative process, be taken from such control or possession but by permission of the Senate; Whereas, when it appears that evidence under the control or in the possession of the Senate may promote the administration of justice, the Senate will take such action as will promote the ends of justice consistent with the privileges of the Senate: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the Office of Senator John McCain and the former Office of Senator Jon Kyl are authorized to produce relevant documents and employee testimony in the case of United States v. Renzi, et al., except concerning matters for which a privilege should be asserted. Sec. 2. The Senate Legal Counsel is authorized to represent current and former employees of the offices of Senators McCain and Kyl in connection with the production of evidence authorized in section one of this resolution.
