HASTINGS: House Ethics Committee voted to establish a special subscommittee to investigate. Reps. Howard Berman (D) and Doc Hastings (R) will serve as chair and ranking on the subcommittee. They will have investigators working for them.

Approved four dozen subpoenas covering members of Congress, staff and others in the House. They won't say who is being subpoenaed.

BERMAN: Time frame, looking at weeks not months. We will go where the evidence takes us.

AP is reporting that Hastert is going to appoint Louis Freeh as an independent "expert" to investigate the page program and suggest changes.
