Bush : "Et tu, House Judiciary?"

My friend, Phil-the-builder, who has a knack for making and building beautiful homes, passed this on to me and I was so riled up by it, I had to share it with you.
It seems that with just days left in the Bush-era, the House Judiciary has made its voice heard loud and clear about the appalling conduct of the current administration, saying, among other things

In keeping with its imperial aspirations, the Administration went to extraordinary lengths to hide its conduct from scrutiny and avoid accountability. Thus, the White House refused to respond to congressional subpoenas, and insisted that presidential aides – and even former aides – are immune from subpoena, even though numerous presidential aides have testified under congressional subpoena during past administrations, as every citizen is legally obligated to do. Here, too, the Administration was following the example set by Richard Nixon. When President Nixon suggested such a claim, Senator Sam Ervin responded: “That is not executive privilege. That is executive poppycock.”

All I can imagine Mr.Bush to be thinking is
"Et tu House Judiciary? Et tu?"
