The House Judiciary Committee subpoenas Karl Rove to testify about the U.S. Attorneys purge, among other mucky things.


Late Update
: The committee is especially interested in Rove’s involvement in the prosecution of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman. In conjunction with issuing the subpoena to Rove, the committee released a letter from the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility confirming that it has launched an investigation of “allegations of selective prosecution relating to the prosecutions of Don Siegelman, Georgia Thompson, and Oliver Diaz and Paul Minor.”
