Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy is subpoenaing White House political adviser Karl Rove to compel him to testify about his role in the firing of 8 United States Attorneys.Why are so many people willing to protect Karl Rove? He will never testify and when he doesn't a Contempt of Congress charge needs to be filed. These people feel they are above the law and while the Republicans had the majority they were. Times have finally changed.
Leahy says he's also subpoenaing White House political aide J-Scott Jennings.
Leahy says he's exhausted every avenue seeking the voluntary cooperation of Rove and Jennings.
This is what Congressional oversight looks like.
