    I also beleive that is what seperates the American Presidential System from Royals.I am an unadulterated supporter of capitalism could care less about mooching royal families.That means whoever pays the check is the one politicians and their staffs as well must be responsible to and since that be me,the American Taxpayer any staff member of the executive must answer the subpoena of congress.Those refusing to do so will be handcuffed and taken straight away to jail and stay there.

    The firing of US Attorneys for political shortcomings is against the law.
    It is no different than if you fire someone for being black or fat or bald.It is a pretty serious matter to me if that is why they were to be fired.I am in Nevada btw.Corruption here is off the hook.We need more honest Attorneys and less politicos.

    To find truth you have to get staffers to come forward about nonsense that went on or is going on.Look at the laws in most states whistleblowers are at a huge disadvantage legally.So few do.Subpoenas provide the cover to testify because you have no choice.

    Did the Supreme Court rule on this or did Rove suddenly have a change of heart?

    What has Emanuel been accused of doing that is outside the executive's power?

    LOL Okay. I thought there was something out there already and I did not know about it.

    I personally don't like Emanuel--never have.

    What does Karl Rove being forced to testify have to do with Emmanuel?

    Has the Obama Administration been attempting to sheild anybody for anything what so ever?
    Scared ****less that Obama is going down the same road? Hehehe, sweat it out bubba.

    Mrs. Conyers faces up to 5 year in prison, three years supervised release and/or a $250,000 fine."

    I wonder if he is going to use the Jefferson defense when his supoenas arrive.

    i.e. " My bribes did not interfere with my congressional duty".



    Oh and if Rove can be proven guilty of something then prosecute to the max too.
    I started a thread about Mrs Conyers last week, so please feel free to add your 2 cents there.

    I wonder if this means that there could/will be an investigation into the DoJ for dropping the charges on voter intimidation and Eric Holder, as the head honcho at justice be held accountable?

    I have heard people saying this before.

    Would you provide a link to supporting evidence?

    Or is this known by all, and just being ignored?
