White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was just asked at a briefing about Congress’s subpoena, issued yesterday to Karl Rove, seeking his testimony on the US Attorneys firings.

Gibbs replied that the White House counsel’s office “is studying those issues and will advise us when they have a recommendation.”

As we reported earlier, the ball is now largely in President Obama’s court as to whether Rove can continue to defy Congress’s subpoena.

We’ll keep you posted.
