Rove Deeply Involved in Firings

Karl Rove can't hide anymore. Karl Rove can't spin it away anymore. The truth is out.

We have intensely focused on the follies of the Rove Republican Racket and now the mainstream media is picking up on the political decisions made by the Rove-Bush-Cheney Administration that turned the U.S. Department of Justice into a political wing of the Republican Party.

From The New York Times:
WASHINGTON — Thousands of pages of internal e-mail and once-secret Congressional testimony showed Tuesday that Karl Rove and other senior aides in the Bush White House played an earlier and more active role than was previously known in the 2006 firings of a number of United States attorneys.

Aides to former President George W. Bush have asserted that the Justice Department took the lead in the dismissals, which set off a political firestorm that lasted months. Mr. Rove played down his role in the firings in a recent interview and in closed testimony last month before Congressional investigators.

But the documents, released by the House Judiciary Committee after a protracted fight over access to White House records and testimony, offer a detailed portrait of a nearly two-year effort, from early 2005 to 2007, by senior White House officials, including Mr. Rove, to dismiss some prosecutors for what appear to be political reasons.
