Karl Rove Issued Subpoena, This Is Moving Forward?

From the AP via Yahoo:

  • WASHINGTON – The House Judiciary Committee chairman subpoenaed former White House adviser Karl Rove on Monday to testify about the Bush administration's firing of nine U.S. attorneys and its prosecution of a former Democratic governor.
  • Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., said the ongoing legal battle to get Rove and other former Bush administration aides to testify may have success with a new president in the White House.
  • Former President George W. Bush upheld Rove and two other senior aides who asserted they did not have to testify before Congress about their actions in the White House.
  • The legal dispute between the executive and legislative branches of government is before a federal appeals court.
  • Rove's lawyer, Robert Luskin, did not return phone messages seeking comment. The subpoena commanded Rove to appear on Feb. 2 for a deposition on the U.S. attorney firings and the prosecution of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman, a Democrat.

So much for moving forward.

  1. Karl Rove can hold his own against that committee. He should just go on in and stare them down.
