WHERE has Karl Rove disappeared to on the day he was subpeonaed to testify before the House Judiciary Committee?
He says he does not have to testify because he is covered by executive privilege (that of course only applies if the executive is involved and President Bush has said he was not involved AT ALL in firing the AGs). Rove has made it clear he would not appear and now is “out of the country.” Today would be the day they could hold him in contempt for not showing up.
Some say it is a “long-planned vacation” and others call it fleeing the country.
I can’t get anything to embed but when I worked at the DA, our line was always, “a subpeona is not an invitation. It says: you are hereby ordered to appear.”
But if I will say kudos for not showing up and lying. **ducks before my readers pelt me with stuff** Showing up and telling the truth would be my preferred outcome, but showing up and lying is worse.
