Rove to be Interviewed by DOJ Today

The King of the Racket is being interviewed by federal prosecutors of the U.S. Department of Justice. At the time of this posting, Rove's Twitter account hadn't been updated in a day. That's an eternity in Twitterland!

Carrie Johnson of The Washington Post posted a short while ago the following: "[T]he logistics of the interview this morning of former Bush aide Karl Rove remain a little murky. What we do know is that prosecutor Nora Dannehy has traveled to the Georgetown office of Rove's lawyer, Bob Luskin, and that Rove is submitting to an interview regarding any role he played in the decision to fire 9 U.S. attorneys in 2006. Rove will not be able to invoke executive privilege, since the privilege belongs to former President Bush, and Bush agreed to waive these issues for the most part to settle a related case filed by the U.S. House of Representatives earlier this year."
