michael moore: subpoenaed or not?

michael moore: subpoenaed or not?

On “The Tonight Show” last night, Michael Moore told Jay Leno that, in his words, “the Bush administration has now issued a subpoena for me.” And NBC issued a press release to that effect. However, I was just watching CNN which seems to have quoted Moore’s lawyer as saying that Moore was not in fact subpoenaed, but instead received a further inquiry about his travels to Cuba for the making of “Sicko.”

Since I wasn’t paying complete attention to the TV, perhaps I misheard what was said. And, maybe its just a matter of semantics, but an actual subpoena is a rather serious matter, but if it didn’t really happen, that would also be worth knowing…

Did anyone else catch the segment?
