Karl Rove’s Email Subpoenaed!

The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee dug in their heels and officially subpoenaed Karl Rove’s email. These messages have been reported lost for quite some time, but, were admitted to be in the U.S. Department of Justice’s possession by Mr. Rove’s attorney.

The Department of Justice came into possession of these messages during U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald’s investigation of “Scooter” Libby and have remaind in the Departmen’s possession despite long standing claims that the messages were lost or deleted.

The Senate Judiciary Committee gave Attorney General Alberto Gonzales several opportunities to voluntarily procure the requested documents. It now appears Gonzales has taxed the Committee’s patience.

Gonzales is now ordered to appear before the committee on May 15, 2007 at their committee room 226 in the Dirksen Senate Office Building with the requested documents and to further testify regarding the Committee’s continuing investigation into the “preservation of prosecutorial independence” and the “politicization of the hiring and firing of United States Attorneys.”
