Terry Schiavo update - a creative solution

Drudge posts the following red letter headline this morning:
**Exclusive Fri Mar 18 2005 00:50:07 ET** The Chairman of the Health, Education, Labor, and Pension (HELP) Committee, Mike Enzi (R-Wyoming) has requested Terri Schiavo to testify before his congressional committee, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned. In so doing it triggers legal or statutory protections for the witness, among those protections is that nothing can be done to cause harm or death to this individual.

Members of Congress went to the U.S. Attorney in DC to ask for a temporary restraining order to be issued by a judge, which protects Terri Schiavo from having her life support, including her feeding and hydration tubes, removed... Developing...

This idea is very similar to a comment left by Sue Bob on this page several weeks ago:
I've been writing to Jeb Bush about this. Do you happen to know what his legal power is? I get the impression that he could begin a criminal investigation (and perhaps take custody of Terri as a material witness?)[emphasis added].

While I am not familiar with that area of law, apparently Congressman Enzi and his staff are.
