Conyers Demands Testimony from Karl Rove
Glynn Wilson of Locust Fork Journal

House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, the Michigan
Democrat, and Committee Members Linda Sánchez (D-CA), Artur
Davis (D-AL), and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) announced three critical
actions today in the Committee’s investigation into allegations of
selective or poltiically-motivated prosecution in the Justice Department.

The Members today invited Karl Rove to testify before the committee,
urged the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General and
Office of Professional Responsibility to investigate those allegations
and demanded that Attorney General Michael Mukasey provide
additional documents in the case.

Today’s actions result from the Committee’s majority staff report, also
released today, which details the cases, interviews and documents
they have reviewed since the Committee began its investigation last
year.

There is extensive evidence that the prosecution of former Governor
Don Siegelman was directed or promoted by Washington officials,
