Yeah, Karl Rove is victim of a witch hunt..
ya know what, if congress calls you, nay subpoenas you.. you are obligated as a citizen of this country to appear. regardless of whatever may be your disposition at the moment.
but Karl Rove is above the law, and all you uber patriots sticking up for him are not PATRIOTS at all but mere party LOYALISTS, with your allegiance to the king. sham patriots make me sick and anyone defending Karl Rove has the sensibilities of a crocodile. encoded pea brains..
when Clinton was in office, i wanted him accountable for his actions consistently, because i held the rule of law in this land above all. and for the few rules that this president has yet to abolish or distort in his favor,.. being unable to play with the deck as stacked as it is.. revolting.
Even if Rove was tried and sent to prison, ya think its going to be
Federal "pound-me-in-the-***" prison, or white-collar resort prison?
former Democratic Alabama governor Don Siegelman speaks out about Karl Rove’s involvement in his prosecution. Siegelman is currently out on bond, after being sentenced to serve seven years in a bribery case in 2006. In his chat with the Star, Siegelman questions Rove’s motives for refusing to testify to Congress under oath about the case
In June of 2006 he was convicted by a federal jury here of taking $500,000 from Richard M. Scrushy, the former chief executive of the HealthSouth corporation, in exchange for an appointment to the state hospital licensing board.

Yes this story is (automatically) "gospel" (because it fits their agenda),
but the rumored tape of O(bs)ama's wife making racist comments about "whitey" with his mentor Rev. Wright, of course that's (automatically) totally bogus.

Watergate itself started out as some small time burglers, and led to Nixon leaving with his tail between his legs.
Rove Issues Non-Denial Of Role In Seigelman Case: ‘I Read About It In The Newspaper’
Last week, the House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed former White House aide Karl Rove to determine his knowledge and role in the decision to prosecute former Democratic governor of Alabama Don Siegelman.
ABC’s This Week host George Stephanopolous asked Rove if he was directly or indirectly involved in Siegelman’s prosecution. Having trouble coming up with a coherent explanation, Rove simply offered this legalistic non-denial denial. “I learned about Don Siegelman’s prosecution by reading about it in the newspaper,” Rove said.
When Stephanopolous continued to press Rove about his involvement in the case, Rove stuttered and stammered, then responded by again saying he learned about it in the newspaper. Stephanopolous astutely noted, “That’s not a denial”

This is an oxymoron, so to speak. Conservatives would never defend anyone who wants to do away with constitutional rights and freedoms. This is, obviously, what would happen should the coup had been sucessful.
What I find the most strange about this accusation is - when you try to find info on this subject - all the website are all very left winged and liberal. Hummm
Also if this was so true why didn't this come out in EITHER of the two elections he won?
Wasserman-Schultz on arresting Rove: ‘Well, if that’s what it takes.’
In an interview with MSNBC’s Dan Abrams yesterday, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) said that the House Judiciary Committee would be willing to arrest Karl Rove if he continues to refuse to testify about his role in the U.S. attorney scandal and prosecution of former Alabama governor Don Siegelman. The Hill reports:
“Well, if that’s what it takes,” she said. “I mean we really cannot allow the co-equal branch of government, the legislative branch, to be trampled upon by the executive branch. The founding fathers established three branches of government. We are a co-equal branch, and this is an administration that essentially has ignored and disrespected the role of the legislative branch for far too long.”
