Karl Rove Flees the Country
by Lindsay Berestein of Alternet.org

Karl Rove was scheduled to testify before the House Judiciary
Committee yesterday. He didn't show. Not only that, the Committee
was told that Rove had left the country on a "long scheduled" trip.

Rep. Johnson Denounces Rove "No Show"
Trading Markets.com

Rep. Hank Johnson, a member of the House Judiciary Committee,
joined Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) and
Commercial and Administrative Law Subcommittee Chairwoman Linda
Sanchez (D-CA) in denouncing Karl Rove's refusal to appear in
violation of a congressional subpoena.

"Mr. Rove's refusal to cooperate is an affront to Congress, this nation,
and the citizens he pledged to serve," said Rep. Johnson. "He is
obliged to appear and testify, under Oath, just as any other citizen or
public servant would be compelled to do; that is the process that he
must respect as well."

Siegelman finally contacted by DOJ's Office
of Professional Responsibility
TuscaloosaNews.com

The Department of Justice's Office of Professional Responsibility had
been charged for some time with getting to the bottom of the many
scandals in the Alberto Gonzales DOJ (don't hold your breath),
including the allegedly politically-motivated prosecution of former
Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman.

Schumer questions Mukasey on Siegelman
Blogged by Jon Ponder for Brad's Blog
























Video: Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) gets nowhere as he attempts
to grill Attorney General Michael Mukasey on the investigation into
Karl Rove's influence in the federal prosecution of former Alabama
Gov. Don Siegelman.

Update (from Brad): Wow. Remarkable exchange. Made either more
or less astounding by the reminder that it was Schumer himself who,
with Diane Feinstein, sealed the confirmation of Mukasey. Regretting
that one yet, Senator?

Letter confirms review of Siegelman prosecution
By Jay Reeves of The Associated Press/ Al.com

A lawyer said Tuesday he wants a Justice Department review of the
prosecution of former Gov. Don Siegelman to focus partly on the
reasons a federal prosecutor in Montgomery stepped aside from the
case.

Siegelman attorney Vince Kilborn said he would make the suggestion
in response to a letter from the Office of Professional Responsibility
confirming it was probing allegations that the case against Siegelman
"was selective and politically motivated."

The letter, which arrived Monday, was the agency's first official
communication about the probe, he said.
