Obama to Face Test on Executive Privilege After Rove Subpoenaed Again Over Attorney Firings, Siegelman Prosecution

The chair of the House Judiciary Committee, John Conyers, has subpoenaed former White House adviser Karl Rove to testify next week about the Bush administration’s firing of nine US attorneys and the prosecution of former Alabama governor Don Siegelman. Rove previously refused to appear before the panel, and former President Bush upheld his legal position. Rove’s attorney, Robert Luskin, said he would consult with President Obama’s White House counsel to determine the Obama administration’s stance. We speak with attorney Scott Horton and former Alabama governor Don Siegelman. [includes rush transcript]

  3. Rove takes the cake, he really does. This guy led the take over of the justice dept, the illegal persocution of fmr Gov. Don Siegelman and Richard Scrushy, as well as numerous other democratic elected officials and now wants Pres. Obama to help him. WOW!!!!!!

  4. Had Pres. Ford not pardoned Nixson, these type of wrong-doings would of not occurred.
    Time for Congress to do its duty, “Protect and Defend the Constitution”, and Represent the people of the United States of America.
    Expose the corruption within “Governement”, enforce accountability, and responsibility of those whom flaunted the Law.
