WASHINGTON (CNN) - Former Bush administration official Karl Rove is scheduled to be interviewed Friday about why a number of U.S. attorneys were fired in 2006, according to an attorney in private practice familiar with the
Rove will be questioned by Nora Dannehy, a Connecticut prosecutor who was appointed last year to lead an investigation into whether any Bush administration officials broke any laws in connection with the dismissals.
A spokesman for Dannehy would not comment when asked whether a meeting is scheduled with Rove.
Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin, would not comment on whether his client will be interviewed Friday. But he told CNN, "Rove has said since Ms. Dannehy was appointed that he would cooperate fully with her investigation."
A Justice Department report last year found the firings of some U.S. attorneys were influenced by political considerations.
Karl Rove=Benjamin Linus
I'm so proud to be an American! People this is what I'm talking about,
Politicians need to understand the days of past are over no longer
will this Nations citizens stand by and turn a blind eye to injustice!
President Obama you better run a tight ship or you'll be next to tow
To Tom Paine!
Bill Clinton did not fire prosecutors in 1993. Every President has changed them on his first term, yet rare has been such move on the second term of any presidency. l have a feeling that you know this fact, but would like to cover Karl Rove's butt. By the way, Tom Paine, l am not a liberal, but an independent with an open mind. They broke the law, they should pay like everyone else. No special treatment....
Too all you anti Pelosi bloggers. Lets get the Bush group rounded up first, because there seems to be some confusion on the part of conservatives over whether torture is really torture at all. Then once that is determined to conservatives satisfaction and Bush/Cheney have been dealt with, by all means, go after Pelosi. If Bush and Co. didn't do anything wrong, well, you see where this is going . . .
Waterboard him – it is okay to do it, the Bush admin said so...
Why no blog on the fact that a senior advisor to Colin Powell has stated that torture was used to try to "create" a false link to Al Queda and Iraq? This was done before the so called "enhanced techniques" laws were written and obviously prove that they produced fasle results.
Under oath? Mr. Bush's "Turdblossom" knows nothing of truth. He is a liar and a practiced one. Perhaps he can still go to jail for lying if he really is under oath and says something besides "I don't recall." We can hope.
Dick Cheney says it's ok to torture Karl Rove to get answers, so long as the methods used are "effective". WATERBOARD ROVE !!!
Look at the last eight years:::::Its about time for them to start paying for
their "dirty work".
One question: Will Rove be under oath?
If not, this is a waste of time
yes. waterboard Rove to extract the truth, cheney says it works...
Does anyone really expect this man to tell the truth?
Hey just because we may be "liberal" doesn't make us blind. Most of us are well aware that Nancy Pelosi is not an asset and certainly knew about the waterboarding..... That is not what this article is about. Frankly Pelosi could go away and it wouldn't bother me at all. I don't think it would bother most Democrats.
Folks, there's nothing illegal about the "GM situation" How
hilarious. Are some of you right-wingers still investigating
Obama's claim that he was born in Hawaii?
Libs, please explain why Clinton firing 93 attorneys didnt have an investigation? All I see here are radical left wing idiots that are too blind to see the truth in their own party.
@DaBird who says "can we prosecute Biden and Obama for dismantling the CIA"
That already happened with Bush. He stopped the drone that Bill Clinton had following Bin Laden before 9/11 happened? Next. . .
Go for the whole Enchilada, the Laundry list; starting with 9/11 !!
The "liberal hatred" doesn't hold a candle to the racist ignorant rants on Fox comment sections.
At least the libs have a point...the conservative nuts keep saying "obama is destroying the nation...he's not a citizen, what about Rev Wright"
No substance, nothing to back anything up, childish rants. Pathetic.
I see mean posts on here but at least they make a real case.
Let's list the biggest losers in politics:
I may run out of room on this section.....
MidwestGuy, go back and read the previous posts. Many "Lib" posters have already explained it in a simple enough way that even republicans can understand it. Have a nice day!
So please... Make the case why the firings of the 8 attorneys is such a big deal when Clinton fired NINTEY THREE! Or does that point escape you?
waste of time. move on.
@ wally, who said "saint nancy knew about it"
Let's pretend you're correct and she did. What could she have done? She had no power nor authority to stop it and speaking up about it while the Bushtard and Cheneybot were running the Executive Branch would have been an invitation for immediate persecution and prosecution given the way Cheneybot rambles on about thinking it was justified behavior like he swallowed a Speak&Spell and someone's tapdancing on his stomach. I'll give the GOP credit for attempting to create a distraction, but waving a red herring around like a pornstar fluffing his...briefcase...just isn't going to cut it when it comes to crimes against humanity.
and go by whatever comes out of his mouth!
I hope they put him on the hot seat and set the stove to "burn, baby, burn". This guy is pure evil scum. He is responsible, at minimum indirectly, for the public scourging of countless politicians (i.e. McCain) employing methods that were less than honorable to put it mildly.
Can we waterboard him in order to obtain "truthful" answers from this maggot?
