Rove Lawyer: Likely Early June For US Attorneys Testimony


Karl Rove’s long-awaited testimony before Congress about the US Attorney firings will likely occur around early June, according to Rove’s lawyer.

Robert Luskin told TPMmuckraker that the Obama White House has been painstakingly sorting through the documents related to the firings, and is providing them to Rove and to the House Judiciary committee simultaneously. It’s that process, said Luskin, that’s driving the scheduling of Rove’s testimony. Luskin stressed that the discussions have been cordial on all sides.After the announcement in early March of the agreement securing Rove’s testimony — which will also cover the Don Siegelman case — Luskin had suggested that we’d be hearing from Rove in “several weeks,” though he declined to be more specific. But clearly, the process is taking longer than anticipated.
