Judge John Bates has ruled against the Bush administration today declaring that:
Harriet Miers is not immune from compelled congressional process; she is legally required to testify pursuant to a duly issued congressional subpoena.
YES! A great day for the rule of law. This ruling will compel Miers, Josh Bolten, and Karl Rove to appear before the House Judiciary Committee and testify under oath. The Bush administration is likely to appeal, and, as I wrote yesterday, I think this whole thing is going to wind up in the Supreme Court (though frankly, this ruling looks very strong, so maybe it won’t make it past appeal).
At any rate, I can’t wait for Rove to testify. I want these criminals indicted and put in jail. If we’re lucky the whole thing will drag on until after Bush leaves office, thereby eliminating the chance of a pardon.
P.S. Sign a petition to put Karl Rove in jail.
