Conyers Subpoenas Rove in U.S. Attorney Firing and Siegelman Case
The subpoena commanded Rove to appear on Feb. 2 for a deposition on the U.S. attorney firings and the prosecution of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman, a Democrat.
Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey named a special prosecutor in September to investigate whether former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, other Bush administration officials or Republicans in Congress should face criminal charges in the firings of the U.S. attorneys.
Conyers is hoping having Obama in the White House may make a difference.
''Change has come to Washington, and I hope Karl Rove is ready for it. After two years of stonewalling, it's time for him to talk.''
