I’m updating this diary because I really think we have a good chance to get some accountability and justice on this.

Rove’s lawyer claims that Rove will
NOT TESTIFY UNDER OATH. In
response, the House Judiciary
Committee has SUBPOENAED the
former White House adviser
He is to appear July 10 to testify.
Now his lawyer says he will not
even show up. Conyers says Rove
is not above the law & he will take
This is breaking news which I heard at about 11:15 A.M. (7/8/08) on the Thom Hartmann show on Air America Radio. Hartmann announced that not only has Karl Rove refused to testify under oath at his hearing before the House Judicial Committee on Thursday, 7/10; Rove’s attorney said today that Rove is not going to show up at all. Rove will defy the subpoena completely. Hartmann further reported that Pelosi has just said she will oppose prosecuting Rove for Contempt of Congress and has told Conyers not to proceed with such prosecution.
Thom Hartmann had Don Siegelman on his program to discuss this. I have not been able to get further confirmation on Pelosi’s position; Spiegelman was not certain either. Pelosi’s phone is busy/busy/busy! Both Spiegelman and Hartmann urge all of us to take action. Call our Congresspersons, call the speaker, call members of House Judiciary committee.
The person I spoke to in Conyers’ office claimed they didn’t know anything more that that Rove was scheduled at the hearing for this Thursday. If anyone gets any confirmations of this, please post in comments.
More information at Don Siegelman dot com and Thom Hartmann dot come.
As xofferson says, “DO SOMETHING.”
And, Thanks for doing something!
