1. Will the Obama Administration Defend Karl
Rove?
by By Stephanie Mencimer Reporter for Mother Jones

When the new Congress returns to Washington next month, one of
the first items of business for Democrats on the House Judiciary
Committee may be to subpoena Karl Rove. The move will put the new
Obama administration in an unexpectedly dicey situation, as the next
attorney general will have to decide whether or not to defend
President Bush's longtime political adviser should he tell the
committee to bug off.

2. Siegelman: Obama Administration Will Not
Let Rove off the Hook
Roger Shuler of Legal Schnauzer

A key Congressional leader has assured former Alabama Governor
Don Siegelman that a Barack Obama administration will seek to hold
Bush White House strategist Karl Rove accountable for possible
interference with the U.S. Justice Department.

"I was at the Democratic National Convention and I asked [Rep.] John
Conyers [the Democratic chairman of the House Judiciary Committee]
if Rove would be pursued in the next administration," Siegelman said.
"And he said--and I quote--'Let me put your fears to rest; it will
happen. We are committed to the long haul.'"

...Braswell says he had a disagreement with White and his wife, Judy,
on the best way to approach White's defense on corruption charges.
The Whites wanted to raise allegations of a conspiracy to bring down
White, a plot they say involves Commissioner Bettye Fine Collins, U.S.
Attorney Alice Martin, and journalists Tom Scarritt and John Archibald
of The Birmingham News.

Braswell said he could find no evidence of such a conspiracy. The
nature of any investigation Braswell conducted is unclear.

The Whites have stated in court documents that Gary White, a
Republican, was prosecuted because he refused to provide false
evidence against former Democratic Governor Don Siegelman.
