Karl Rove (finally) honors subpoena

Posted By on Wed, Jul 8, 2009 at 4:20 PM

Now, you know, if you or I ignored a subpoena for two years, we'd have spent some time behind bars. Those rules don't apply for the GOP's demigod of PR spin, though.

Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin, declined to confirm or deny that his client had appeared before the committee. Luskin said there was an agreement that the depositions would remain confidential until they were completed. However, in a court filing Monday, the Justice Department indicated that the deposition set for this week would be the committee's last.

Conyers’ panel had first subpoenaed Rove in 2007 as part of its probe into the firing of nine U.S. attorneys. But the Bush White House, citing executive privilege, refused to make Rove or White House Counsel Harriet Miers available for any deposition.

Here's something funny: A protestor tries to "citizen arrest" Karl Rove for treason. Watch him lie about who's responsible for deregulation and say mean things about John Kerry.
