Karl Rove, the dancing white guy, is subpoenaed to appear before The House Judiciary Committee in Washington, DC.
He is to answer questions about dismissing some cases and prosecuting Democrats.
The committee ordered Rove to appear July 10 to testify on claims that he was a key player in pressing the Justice Department to dismiss some U.S. attorneys and to prosecute Democrats.
It had authorized the subpoena earlier but delivered it Thursday after Rove’s attorney said he would not appear voluntarily, Chairman John Conyers, D-Michigan, said in a written statement.
“It is unfortunate that Mr. Rove has failed to cooperate with our requests,” Conyers said. “Although he does not seem the least bit hesitant to discuss these very issues weekly on cable television and in the print news media, Mr. Rove and his attorney have apparently concluded that a public hearing room would not be appropriate. Unfortunately, I have no choice today but to compel his testimony on these very important matters.”
Does this mean that corruption is unabated in Washington? Whereas a few former official White house have been subpoenaed is this one going to be as open as some hope?
