Lawyer: Rove won't take the Fifth if he testifies

Raw Story

Representatives of the Bush White House are no longer advising former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove that he is protected by executive privilege as regards testimony about the alleged political prosecution of an Alabama governor.

In an exchange with Raw Story, Rove’s Washington, D.C. attorney, Robert Luskin, also said Rove won’t invoke his Fifth Amendment right to protect himself from self-incrimination, if and when he testifies about the firing of nine US Attorneys and the prosecution of the former governor.

That said, Luskin refused to commit his client to testifying publicly or under oath.

In a letter to Turdblossom's mouthpiece, Rep, Conyers says:

In essence, given Mr. Roves's public statements that he does not intend to comply with the subpoena, I am puzzled as to why Mr. Rove needs a mutually convenient date to fail to appear.

Heh. In my heart of hearts, I want Rove to FTA. Try it in your local court and watch what happens.

If Conyers has any balls, in a coupla weeks we'll see Turdblossom as the star in a two-hour Dog The Bounty Hunter Special. Note to the Dog: turn ol' Beth loose on his ass. I just love watchin' her cleavage when she gets ta rockin' 'n rollin'!
