Although he says it could turn into a “show trial,” Karl Rove tells FOX News he is looking forward to telling the House Judiciary Committee about his alleged role in the firing of federal prosecutors and the prosecution of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman.
Until now, Rove had been shielded from testifying by his former boss, President George W. Bush, who had asserted executive privilege on Rove’s behalf. But on Monday, lawyers for Bush and President Obama reached a deal that will allow Rove to be deposed by the Judiciary Committee, which is chaired by Rep. John Conyers, Michigan Democrat…
Rove acknowledges that Conyers probably has more interest in him than in two other former Bush aides entangled in the case, White House Counsel Harriet Miers and Chief of Staff Josh Bolten.
“I understand they may be the hors d’oeuvres, but I’m the main course,” said Rove, who was Bush’s top political adviser in the White House. “Some Democrats would love to have me barbecued.”
