Karl Rove is a no show for the extended deadline given by the House Judiciary Committee. The Committee has not yet said what their next terrifying step is. Their options are Contempt of Congress or Inherent Contempt of Congress. Inherent Contempt seems less likely because, really, have they done anything bold or brave lately?
Rove may not be talking to Congress, but he sure is running his mouth every where else he goes.
Speaking for the first time about his failure to answer a subpoena to testify before the House Judiciary Committee about his involvement in the Don Siegelman prosecution, Karl Rove says the White House is preventing his testimony and also blames MSNBC’s Dan Abrams.”
The Judiciary wants Rove to testify about his “alleged” involvement with the prosecution of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman. The former senior advisor to President Bush claims he mysteriously has executive privilege while simultaneously asserting he never talked to the White House about Siegelman. Several legal experts have pointed out it’s the President who has to assert the privilege, and that has not been done.
