Rove Refuses To Appear Before House
Judiciary Panel
By John Bresnahan of the Politico/CBS News

Karl Rove, former White House deputy chief of staff and President
Bush's top political adviser, is refusing to appear before the House
Judiciary Committee to testify on "politicization" within the Justice Dept.
Rove had been scheduled to appear next Thursday, July 10.

Rove's refusal to respond to a Judiciary Committee subpoena drew a
stern response from Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers
(D-Mich.) and Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.), chairwoman of the
Commercial and Administrative Law subcommittee.

"We want to make clear that the subcommittee will convene as
scheduled and expects Mr. Rove to appear, and that a refusal to
appear in violation of the subpoena could subject Mr. Rove to
contempt proceedings, including statutory contempt under federal law
and proceedings under the inherent contempt authority of the House
of Representatives," Conyers and Sanchez wrote in a letter to Rove's
attorney, Robert Luskin.
