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.
The chicken-hawks are coming home to roost!
What's your best guess on how many times he "doesn't recall", "misspoke or "pleads the fifth"?
They should throw this war criminal in jail for the rest of his life
Karl Rove:The face of deception, corruption, egoism, and insensitivity the face of Fix news and the architect of a unsuccessful administration!
It would be so nice to see Karl Rove in an Orange suit. Dick Cheney would look pretty good too.
Under oath? I am sure he will tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth, wink wink. Disgusting turdblossom.
the biggest mistake bush made was when he came to office he didn't completely clean out EVERY clinton appointee! i said from the beginning that he made a terrible mistake keeping any democrat and that they would be after him until they destroyed him – the media fails to report that clinton fired every single one of his predecessors appointees so he could get away with all the vile acts he and his wife and administration commited! what a bunch of lying, despicable fools who are covered by the lying, despicable media!!!!!!!!!
Carl, can direct the attention of the ignorant masses all he wants. The fact remains, he can never claim to be a man.
Obama is a loose cannon -- he needs to wake up before he bankrupts this country
Yes, the only way to get the truth is waterboarding or some other form of torture.
Careful with Rove. He's one of those clever ChickenHawks!!!
Gee do you think they were influnced by political considerations???? The whole repo party as been cooupt for the last 8 years. It just gets better and better. Maybe Rush can help him out.
Judging by the Republican definition of "torture," what do you suppose Rove means by "cooperate fully?"
Will he actually show up this time? And can she ask him about other nefarious activities he orchestrated, or just the judges? Maybe there IS light at the end of the tunnel.
Is he going to be under oath or is this one of those fake questionings?
this clown belongs in jail!
I suspect that Dannehy, not being a Bush admin lackey, has been building a substantial case and after hurtling some obstacles set up by Mulkasey and other Bush sympathizers in the DoJ, she is loaded for bear. I dont think Rove's game will be quite up to hers and he is in for a surprise. His normal cycle of obfuscation and blaming others will not fly in the face of a impartial and strong advocate of the government. It's his time to take it ......where the sun doesnt shine.
Karl Rove is just a dumb Republican. He needs to spend some time in jail.
I'll bet Rove will NOT tell the truth. He's a liar just like Bush and Cheney.
"sure, I'll swear on a bible," said the man with no soul...
It is sad that this is the only thing that he is questioned for
He belongs to jail for sure
Rove is (hopefully) the first domino. Here's hoping (fingers crossed).
If not from Rove, where else would a coordinated effort to put partisans in judicial positions come from?
Yes karl its yr turn to be on the hot seat and i hope u get what you is coming to u! take g.w bush dick cheney
This is really fun to watch.
