Waas: Rove to Cooperate With Criminal Probe
Murray Waas has a new article up on Talking Points Memo in which he reports that Karl Rove's attorney says Rove will cooperate with the the federal grand jury probe of the firings of nine U.S. attorneys.
Murray has more info on his own site.
Rove has been interviewed by investigators in the internal DOJ probe into the prosecution of former AL Governor Don Siegelman.
The criminal investigation into the firings is being led by Nora Dannehy, the Acting U.S. Attorney for Connecticut.
Luskin said that Rove "has not and will not assert any personal privileges." He also said that in regard to the earlier probe, Rove had not done so, but had rather only "followed the guidance of the White House."
Go read Murray for why he thinks Rove won't cooperate in the Judiciary Committee probe and why Obama won't invoke executive privilege.
