Here's a highlight from the Resolution that seems clear and reasonable enough:
"... The President is requested to transmit to the House of Representatives all documents, including telephone and electronic mail records, logs, calendars, minutes, and memos, in the possession of the President relating to communications with officials of the United Kingdom from January 1, 2002, to October 16, 2002, relating to the policy of the United States with respect to Iraq, including any discussions or communications between the President or other Administration officials and officials of the United Kingdom that occurred before the meeting on July 23, 2002, at 10 Downing Street in London, England, between Prime Minister Tony Blair of the United Kingdom, United Kingdom intelligence officer Richard Dearlove, and other national security officials of the Blair Administration"
Here's a link to the full document in beautiful, official, suitable-for-framing pdf format.
And I'd like to thank my Representative, Frank Pallone, for being one of the 26 original sponsors of this important Resolution. If your Representative hasn't signed on to support this Resolution yet, please contact him or her about it.
