Rove refuses call to testify under oath


www.montgomeryadvertiser.com

WASHINGTON -- A House Judiciary Committee deadline passed Monday with former White House adviser Karl Rove standing by his refusal to testify about allegations that he pushed the Justice Department to prosecute former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman.


In his latest offer to settle the matter, Rove sent the panel a letter offering to respond to questions in writing, according to his attorney. But he reiterated that he would not testify publicly and under oath.

Committee leaders did not immediately answer questions about how they will respond. Earlier this month, they threatened to subpoena Rove if he did not agree to appear voluntarily by Monday.

The dispute is the latest in a standoff between President Bush and Congress over testimony from current and former White House staffers on a variety of issues.

The White House has balked at requests for staff testimony, arguing that the administration has no obligation to respond to congressional demands for the details of internal deliberations.

I have been keeping a close (albeit quiet) eye on this. Rove is the ultimate scum-bag tied to the Bush crime cabal, and this guy has a history of political meddling and under-handedness. Hopefully they subpoena him and FORCE his butt up on the stand. That criminalistic slime-bag.

Unfortunately he would probably fall back on the 5th amendment as is his right... of course they could waterboard him.
