Storyline

Special prosecutor Clem Rollins announces the grand jury subpoenas in the case of president's failure to disclose his MS to the public, and the list includes pretty much every West Wing staffer and Bartlet family member; Sam and Connie meet with an important Latino activist from Calif. who is considering supporting a primary challenger to Bartlet; C.J. convinces everyone that the special prosecutor is too reasonable, and that the W.H. needs a "better enemy" in the investigation, prompting the staff to provoke a Congressional inquiry.

Goofs

In the beginning of the episode, prior to the opening credits, Special Prosecutor Clement 'Clem' Rollins formally announces the official list of subpoenas to be issued (which he reads aloud). The final name Rollins reads before the credits play is, 'Toby Zachary Ziegler.' Problem: 'Toby', while it is the name those who watch the show know him by, is still just his nickname, not his given name (which would be listed on a legal document). His given name is Tobias.
