Conyers to Rove: No
by Paul  Kiel of TPMMuckraker

.....He modified that offer to testify by letter.

But Conyers says that's a no-go. If Rove is willing to create a record
with a letter, he argues, then there's no reason why he shouldn't be
willing to sit down with staff for an on-the-record interview. Conyers
says the committee is prepared to offer "other possible
accommodations, such as providing a list of initial questions that may
be asked," but there must be a live interview and a transcript.
Conyers again mentions the possibility of a subpoena should talks
break down.

So now the ball is in Rove's court.

....................................................................................................................................................Showdown
in Shelby County, Part II
Roger Shuler of Legal Schnauzer

The attorney who places the winning "bid" is Bill Swatek, who looks
like he came from a cast party for the "The Grifters." Notice the look
on Swatek's face when he's asked why he waited three-plus years,
after I started a blog, to suddenly get interested in this "judgment."
Notice the look on his face when he's asked why he's never asked for
the money. By the way, when Swatek saw we were in the vicinity, he
went back in the courthouse and about four additional deputies
appeared. Guess we were a big security risk. This all prompted my
cinematographer to quip, "How many deputies does it take to screw
up an auction in Shelby County?"
