Harriet Miers, the former White House counsel under President Bush, has finally testified, behind closed doors, as part of Congress’s investigation of the US attorney firings, reports FOXNews.com.
That raises an obvious question: When will Karl Rove do the same? Rove’s lawyer, Robert Luskin, told TPMmuckraker last month that he expected Rove to testify in early June. But today Luskin did not immediately return our call.An agreement securing testimony from Rove and Miers was announced in March. Until then, they had long refused to testify, citing President Bush’s claims of executive privilege, prompting House Judiciary chair John Conyers to issue subpoenas, and the House to vote to hold them in contempt.
It remains unclear how much of Miers’ and Rove’s testimony Conyers will decide to release.
