(CNN) – House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers issued a new subpoena for former Bush adviser Karl Rove Monday.
Rove was subpoenaed by Conyers last year, but refused to testify before Congress, pointing to executive privilege although he was no longer part of the administration.
“I have said many times that I will carry this investigation forward to its conclusion, whether in Congress or in court, and today’s action is an important step along the way,” Conyers said in a statement released Monday. “Change has come to Washington, and I hope Karl Rove is ready for it. After two years of stonewalling, it’s time for him to talk.”
The Michigan congressman is again looking to question Rove over whether the prosecution of former Democratic Gov. Don Siegelman, and the firing of the U.S. attorneys, were politically motivated. Rove has denied playing a part in either affair.
Lock him up and throw away the key. Put him in Gitmo. We'll figure out what the charges are in about 5 or 6 years. And he might want his snorting fat friend Rush with him -- hmmm, perfect couple.
Rove is a domestic terrorist, so when he flees the states to avoid the subpoena, use all means necessary to bring him back, then waterboard him to get the info. See how he likes it.
More of our hard earned money going to waste in order to push a political agenda!
This is the kind person we need in washington. Someone who calls for justicee. I applaude you on this new move.. I have not heard CNN said anything about the alligation on unwarrant wire taping that bush administration was doing except for msnbc. NSA listen to every single of our phone calls, and went through one of our emails, and now the news is out, you don't even hear on CNN, except for MSNBC< KEITH< RACHEL. BRaVO gusy, I love John Adams. Freedom of the press
Rove is one disgusting human being. The man should be locked up. I firmly believe that when his time comes to meet his maker he will pay dearly for all his sins.
No one is above the law, if we do anything that Rove Cheney had done we would be in the Pen
And if he keeps on stonewalling, Congressman, throw him in prison for contempt of court. Then move on to the rest of that corrupt administration.
2009, January 26: Rove, Cheney, Rumsfeld are not in prison yet. I'm not sure Bush will get there: he can always say he did not know anything, and it is hard to argue with that.
Its time for Carl Roves prison term.
Now that President Obama is in office and under the constitution is the head of the Executive Department of the US, isnt the executive privilege his and can't he waive it . It is the executive's privilege after all, and not Mr. Rove's who is a private citizen.
Get him John. You should have done this in the first place. Maybe once we put the wrench on that nut, he will sell the rest of them down the river. God please let eric Holder go after these criminals. I hate what they have done to America
Is Ken Starr going to be involved so that more money can be wasted? I think Rove is guilty but is it worth the cost of prosecuting him?
If Rove refuses (again!) he should be charged with contempt and jailed until he decides to testify....that's what would happen to me!!
I wonder if President Bush wished he had pardon everybody on his way out the door?
Please let's move on I do not want to hear anymore about President George W. Bush and the worst eight years in the American Goverment history.
Karl Rove needs to fry for all the nonsense he has orchestrated!!!
That's it democrats...DISTRACT! DISTRACT! DISTRACT!
It's your only hope of holding your majority in Congress in 2010 and keeping your guy in the White House in 2012. If you want people to buy your rhetoric about being the "party of the future," then you should stop fixating on the past.
Bring four orange jumpsuits with you Mr. Coyners, one for Rove, Bush, Cheney and Gonzales.
Nobody to hide behind anymore.
Your so-called political genius was only the wool over america's eyes. Now that it is removed, it shows the ugly beast that you have always been. Since your bugging of your own office scheme during the Mark White/Bill Clemens gubernatorial race you helped steal. We have not forgotten your sly and deceitful scare tactics. You have no one to pardon your crimes, and nowhere to hids. You will testify, as you have never been above the law. Justice will be served.
Give it up John. There is no way you will bring Rove down without dealing with the wrong W had done and the former VP. They are all connected an unless you are willing ot go after the whole next you will not be able to get any of them. Besides, we can't handle the truth.
Get a life!
Rove won't talk unless we hire Cheney to waterboard him.
Under a new administration & new FOIA rules, there is no excuse for allowing Karl Rove to ignore this subpoena. Have the sergeant-at-arms pick him up at the Fox News studio & arrest him if he doesn't comply.
Let it be and get on with the important things
now send him to jail
