WASHINGTON Mar 20, 2007 (AP)— The White House offered Tuesday to make political strategist Karl Rove and former counsel Harriet Miers available for interviews but not testimony under oath before congressional committees investigating the firing of eight federal prosecutors.
Sen. Charles Schumer, D-NY, said he would still press for White House aides to testify under oath, saying that White House counsel Fred Fielding "indicated he didn't want to negotiate" whether Rove and others would have to appear in a full hearing. "That doesn't mean we're not going to try," Schumer said.
It sure sounds like they are afraid to me and they should be. Rove has had his fingers in every politically driven illegal and morally questionable escapade executed by the White House and this US Attorney thing is only the latest to come to light. Libby took the fall for the Plame outing but I guess they couldn't find anyone else to take the fall for this one. Bush is expected to make a statement when he gets back from Kansas City later today. Can't wait.
