WASHINGTON (CNN) – Former Bush administration official Karl Rove was interviewed Friday at the office of his lawyer about why several U.S. attorneys were fired in 2006.
Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin, issued a statement after the meeting saying, "Mr. Rove was interviewed by prosecutors today and answered all of their questions. He intends to fully cooperate with the investigation."
Rove himself had no comment for reporters outside Luskin's office, saying only, "Have a nice weekend."
No details of the discussions were publicly released Friday, so the scope of the questioning was not fully known.
It's time to use torture on this SOB to get the truth from him. Karl Rove and his buddies are never to be trusted again. They will lie their way as far as they could go.
If his lips were moving he was lying.
RayRay – you need to educate yourself. Do you think that Obama won the election with only the votes of libs????? Even Dems & Libs & independents couldn't have given him that victory. Republicans helped elect Obama. Why do you think republicans would vote for Obama? Yes, there is a lot of hate out here for Cheney/Rove and others and some of that hate if coming from Republicans. Perhaps you should take the time to look into this and see why.

What a ridiculous waste of time. The president and his administration had the OBLIGATION to remove lawyers who would not comply with his direction. I can't believe we are still talking about this non-issue.
Hey there, in what country do you live? In America, we aren't OBLIGATED to comply with our leaders. We are OBLIGATED to oppose them when they are wrong, not stand blindly behind them. See, this is just the kind of BS the GOP talks. If President Obama is a "socialist" then W is a commie and so are you.
RayRay i see that you have not seen a shrink yet.
Rove "intends to fully cooperate with the investigation"? There is a big difference between "intends to" and "will". Perhaps some enhanced interrogation techniques might help Mr. Rove keep to his intentions. He and his cronies seem to like waterboarding. Surfs up, Karl!
Was he under oath, oh wait, it makes no difference, Rove doesn't know what the word truth means.
Hey rove its yr turn hope u go to jail! you the saying every dog has his day looks like rove day has come
Who is Karl Rove, Dick Cheney, Rumsfield, Sara Palin, Joe The Crackhead, Michael Steel all these new people just popped up on the scene since President Obama became President I don't remember seeing or hearing from any of these people, or they new to politics..
After 4 hrs of questioning.....he must of had something to say....probably lies anyway....I bet he forgot how to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth....lol lol lol
Funny, heard that Laura Bush didn't like the little sidewinder....
Rove will be the scapegoat for DOJ abuses committed by every president since Nixon. But he won't suffer much. A little slap on the wrist is all he'll get. He knows too much. And Obama isn't going to want to shine a light on the Bush DOJ which just happens to be the Obama DOJ complete with the unreformed Patriot Act, warrant-less wiretaps and politically motivated investigations.

Switch sisters before you breed any more.
Lies Lies and more Lies.
LET'S TRY WATERBOARDING ON HIM 25 TIMES SINCE IT IS NOT TORTURE.
Rove is a ugle evil man that needs the chair.
Liberals are just so convinced that Bush had to have done something illegal.
I think it has to do with how dishonest the democrats tend to be.
Clinton lied about Monica, Hillary lied about sniper fire, Pelosi is caught lying about CIA briefs, several of them lied and cheated on their taxes, Edwards cheated on his sick wife... the dishonesty goes on and on.
People always seem to accept the lies of democrats while accusing the Republicans of being dishonest liars.
The Democrats always seem to be fooled or misled by everyone around them. The war in Iraq comes to mind.
Just like the CIA briefs, nothing will come of this.
Maybe he can share a cell with Dick Cheney in a nice quiet federal prison.
you people from cnn and the rest of the media should read these posts because you are responsable for unreasonable anger from people that think you tell the truth

Are you kidding? US Attorneys, all attorneys, are to follow the LAW, and the Constitution, not the President's whims. That's why torture happened, because the DOJ lawyers bowed to Bush and wrote what he wanted them to to approve torture. This is still America...in spite of Bush's efforts to turn us into something else.
Ask Obama why he's replacing U.S. attorneys with his appointees?
Just because he anwered all the questions doesn't mean he did it truthfully. Look, nothing is going to happen to this old goat. He's a part of something much larger than we imagine...much more than just politcal lies and greed. We'll never know the real truth because the wealthy don't have to explain jack to us working class and poor and they know it.
