It took quite a while, but it finally happened. The wheels of justice finally caught up with Karl Rove in the matter of the politically motivated firing of US attorneys, and he testified before a Congressional subcommittee.
Former Bush White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove was deposed by lawyers for the House Judiciary Committee, Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-MI) said in an interview Tuesday.
Roves deposition took place over a period of some eight and a half hours, beginning at 10 a.m. and ending around 6:30 p.m, ET and the lawyers took several breaks, Conyers said.
Whether Rove is innocent or guilty is not important here. That will be for the courts to determine, IF Rove is indicted for anything. If he is not indicted and convicted, then he is considered innocent. The important point here is that the concept of the unitary presidency has just absorbed a fatal blow. Presidents and their staff ARE subject to Congressional subpoenas, and when called to testify, must do so. The president is not a king, and those who work for him are not royalty who have the right to disobey lawful orders, unlike any other American. Keep that in mind, President Obama.
