Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman offers a stunning (yet not so stunning considering it involves Machiavelli’s apprentice) update on the Office of Inspector General’s investigation into the fired U.S. Attorneys scandal.
In an email sent to Glynn Wilson at the Locust Fork Journal, Siegelman writes:
I have received information that the Inspector General’s Office has learned that DOJ has issued false statements regarding the White House’s involvement in the firing of the US Attorneys. As we now know the White House knowingly issued false statements to cover up Karl Rove’s involvement in the political firings of the U S Attorneys. Statements by DOJ that the White House was not involved in the firings were actually authored by Karl Rove’s assistant IN THE WHITE HOUSE!”
Siegelman indicates “Rove personally directed the firings then used his assistant to cover up his involvement” via issuing those false statements from the White House.
Fired U.S. Attorney David Iglesias has already provided details about Rove’s connection to his case. Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald also has concerns about being pushed out of his job during the Valerie Plame Wilson probe, and Rove was the instigator in the possibility of firing Fitzgerald while subject to Fitzgerald’s investigation!
To help bring these things to light Siegelman asks people,
