Bush lawyer directs Rove not to talk to Congress—once again


www.newsweek.com

Just four days before he left office, President Bush instructed former White House aide Karl Rove to refuse to cooperate with future congressional inquiries into alleged misconduct during his administration.

On Jan. 16, 2009, then White House Counsel Fred Fielding sent a letter (.pdf) to Rove's lawyer, Robert Luskin. The message: should his client receive any future subpoenas, Rove "should not appear before Congress" or turn over any documents relating to his time in the White House.

Privilege in Perpetuity? Really? Does Bush think he gets to hide things forever? Does he not know that there is a new president now?

Will Obama overturn this executive order and force Rove to finally testify before congress? Will Bush's executive privileges run out?

Apparently Bush felt the need to give himself more executive privileges prior to leaving office. His counsel Fred Fielding sent a Letter.PDF letter to Rove's Attorney Robert Luskin telling him not to have Rove testify or answer a House Judiciary Committee subpoena.
