House Panel Approves Subpoenas for Bush's Advisor Rove and Other Top Aides in Prosecutor Flap

WASHINGTON Mar 21, 2007 (AP)— A House panel on Wednesday approved subpoenas for President Bush's political adviser, Karl Rove and other top White House aides, setting up a constitutional showdown over the firings of eight federal prosecutors.

By voice vote, but with some "no" votes heard, the House Judiciary subcommittee on commercial and administrative law decided to compel the president's top aides to testify publicly and under oath about their roles in the firings.

Note: Subpoenas for the following individuals would be covered by the authorization: D. Kyle Sampson, Karl Rove, Harriet Miers, William Kelley, and Scott Jennings.

The DEM's are not backing down on this! This is Bush's Watergate! Which will it be, resign or be Impeached?

Well, I did my calling of Conyer's and Leahy's office yestrerday to push for Subpeonas.

It has been discovered that there are 18 days of missing emails from the DOJ docuemnts between Nov. 15 & Dec. 4 of last year.

Do you think an 18 day gap could be like Nixon's 18 minute gap in the Watergate tapes?

Okay JBs -- please take the time to call Conyer's and Leahy's offices to express your support for the subpeonas and to mention the 198 days of missing emails.
Here's the toll free # for the Capitol 1-800-459-1887.

If you have time -- email the MSM or post on their blogs -- we need to sieze the day here. This may be the tipping point: Just think Rove under oath!!!

Thanks Quzi for posting the phone numbers, I'm going to make the calls now! And hope everyone does. I just saw an article in Raw Story that says that although the Committee has voted to issue the subpoenas, they have not yet issued them. I hope the House deals with this as a bipartisan issue. Yesterday Bush slammed the door of the People's House, right in our faces. We need to get that door open and get some sunshine and fresh air in there!

Good Morning Everyone! :)

Yes, thanks Quzi for the phone number and please, everyone, call and support this! ;)

18 days of missing documents must be incriminating evidence..yes, Q, just like Watergate!

So now do they "go to ground"?

Will they all go hide in Cheney's undisclosed location?

And if they ignore the subpoena, will they be charged with Contempt of Congress?

Oh please, please please!!!!

Hi Basheert:

Whatever they do now doesn't really matter because this is the final hour of truth for America! This administration has gotten away with too much for too long...Not this time! hehe
