Rove Subpoenaed

Views

The Senate Judiciary has issued a subpoena to Karl Rove for him to testify regarding his role in the U.S. Attorneys purge. Obviously, the White House will cite executive privilege and refuse to make Rove available, so we’re not going to see Rove under the kleig lights anytime soon. But it’s another step toward a long overdue confrontation in the courts on the true scope of executive privilege.
