The Definition of Contempt

BP, after destroying a significant portion of the earths ecology, has now refused to allow its employees to testify voluntarily in front of the US Congress. An AP article by Henry R. Weber reports:

The chairman of a House panel investigating the Gulf oil spill said Friday that BP won’t let members talk to several employees who may have critical information about what led to the catastrophe.

Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., told The Associated Press that BP PLC has cited its own investigation as its reason for denying access to the employees.

Rep. Stupak says:

…he isn’t ready to issue subpoenas yet.

Why should he have to if BP hasn’t committed some heinous act? BP has been duplicitous and evasive from the beginning. now they have become contemptuous of all of US.
