Rove, Siegelman, and the DOJ Firings

Karl Rove is being subpoenaed by John Conyers about the Dept. of Justice firings, and being in the middle of using the DOJ for political prosecutions - including using the DOJ to indict Democrats right before elections. One of those Democrats is Don Siegelman, governor of Alabama, who is a guest in this video. In case you didn't know it, the DOJ firings were because some of the federal attorneys would NOT participate in this! This is a "must see" video, because they give an overview of exactly what the DOJ firings were all about.

The chair of the House Judiciary Committee, John Conyers, has subpoenaed former White House adviser Karl Rove to testify next week about the Bush administration’s firing of nine US attorneys and the prosecution of former Alabama governor Don Siegelman. Rove previously refused to appear before the panel, and former President Bush upheld his legal position. Rove’s attorney, Robert Luskin, said he would consult with President Obama’s White House counsel to determine the Obama administration’s stance. We speak with attorney Scott Horton and former Alabama governor Don Siegelman.
