House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers (D-MI) has subpoenaed Karl Rove’s ass again. The political prosecution of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman and the selective firing of 9 U.S. Attorneys are still unresolved matters. And dodgy Rove has managed effectively to hide behind the skirts of executive privilege.
Will Obama’s Justice Department enforce or ignore the subpoena? Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley mulls over the question near the end of this segment on Countdown.
Rove’s deposition is slated for Monday, February 2, 2009. Last time he actually left the country on deposition day.
