New Evidence Puts White House At Center Of Attorney Scandal

WASHINGTON — The White House is being pulled further into the intensifying probe over federal prosecutor firings amid new questions about top political adviser Karl Rove's role and as GOP support for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales erodes.

President Bush's top legal aides were to tell congressional Democrats on Friday whether and under what conditions they would allow high-level White House officials, including Rove, to testify under oath in the inquiry.

Subpoenas could come as early as next week.

E-mails released this week, including a set issued Thursday night by the Justice Department, appear to contradict the administration's assertion that Bush's staff had only limited involvement in the firings of eight U.S. attorneys, which Democrats have suggested were a politically motivated purge.

KleptoKarl (has his hand on everything) told a group of students yesterday that "the masses are not asses", with regard to the manipulation of the media.

KleptoKarl has sticky fingers.

"Karl" (as noted in the emails) definitely was driving the bus before it lost it's wheels and took everyone into that smelly old ditch.
