Paging Karl Rove

“Democrat John Conyers of Michigan, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, today subpoenaed former White House aide Karl Rove to testify a week from today before the committee. It’s the second time Conyers has tried to get Rove to appear in connection with what he calls the politicization of the Justice Department during the Bush administration, including the firing of U.S. attorneys and the prosecution of former Alabama governor Don Siegelman. Conyers said in a press release that while the Bush administration said Rove had immunity, President Obama disagreed with that claim.” [USA Today]

    I hate the thought of dealing with these Bush fools interfering with making actual progress in our country and distracting people, but at the same time, unless they are prosecuted for their crimes, we’ll set a terrible legal precedent for executive power.
