John Conyers, Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has finally gone ahead and subpoenaed Karl Rove. It’s basically a meaningless gesture because Rove’s not going to show up (he claims executive privilege), but it prepares the way for a citation for contempt of Congress. Harriet Miers is already fighting her own subpoena in the courts and this will likely go the same route.
Conyers’s committee is investigating politically influenced prosecutions and firings within the Bush Justice Department.
I say, it’s about time. I want these criminals put in jail.
