WASHINGTON Karl Rove and Harriet E. Miers, top former aides to President George W. Bush, will testify under oath to a House committee investigating the firings of nine United States attorneys in 2007, under an agreement announced Wednesday by the panel.
The agreement settled a rancorous dispute that began in mid-2007 when the House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed Mr. Rove and Ms. Miers, who, according to e-mail messages released by the Justice Department, played a role in the firings.

Just another distraction.
I think Rove is making a terrible mistake to show up for this circus. Nothing good can come of it.
Exactly. Obama’s doing an absolutely shitty job with the economy and the banking sector, but he’s pretty good at keeping the already weak GOP opposition off balance. I don’t think Dems would be doing this though if the GOP was irrelevent. It’s the Democrats who can’t stand up to scrutiny.
Rove isn’t an idiot, but getting into a debate with idiots doesn’t necessarily help matters. Something tells me though that only the mouthbreathers on the loony Dem left are going to pay attention to this however. The public in general is probably pretty self absorbed right now.
He should go, and just keep saying I don’t recall....
These distractions can, at the very least, help to delay all of the “socialistic crap” that’s still coming everybody’s way. This whole thing is a profound joke, and the entire “worldwide leftist domination” is also a profound joke with no quick end in sight.
This is a witch hunt. Always has been. How about putting Bawny Fwank and Chris Dodd up before the panel. I want to hear Maxine Walters pussy foot around and throw soft ball questions at them for their part in the Fannie and Freddie mess.
I’m not laughing a this joke...
"The firings were the subject of a lengthy report released last fall by the Justice Department's inspector general and the department's Office of Professional Responsibility. Investigators there uncovered improper political motivations in the firings of several of the nine dismissed federal prosecutors."
In so far as I have seen, these are allegations by the DoJ and not proven in a court-of-law. But, of course to a WaPo reporter these are mere niceties in that if it is a Republican, the person is GUILTY (Red Queen Rules)!
