Senate Judiciary Committee approves authorization
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Senate Judiciary Committee approved by voice vote Thursday the authorization of the use of subpoenas to elicit testimony from five Justice Department officials in its investigation of how the firings of eight U.S. attorneys were handled by Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

It postponed, however, vote on the authorization to use subpoenas to compel White House officials to testify, including President Bush's top political adviser, Karl Rove, and former White House Counsel Harriet Miers.
