Rove Finishes Interview Over U.S. Attorneys' Firings
If anyone knows the paces of a q and a by prosecutors and/or a grand jury by now, it's Karl Rove, who with four such appearances under his belt, never got indicted in PlameGate.
Today's interview on the U.S. Attorneys' firing was probably a piece of cake for him. He and his very able lawyer, Bob Luskin, were seen laughing it up as they were about to enter the building.
I doubt after hours of being prepped by Luskin, there was any question Rove couldn't answer either ambiguously but truthfully or with a clever dodge. [More...]
It's why the best advice to someone in that situation is: (a) take the 5th and deal with any political fallout -- and hope they don't want you badly enough to immunize you -- or (b) retain the best counsel you can afford and be completely honest with him or her, so when the day of reckoning comes, you know your place and he knows his job. There's no crime if your version of the truth is you did nothing wrong, and there's no lies or attempts at obstruction.
Shorter version: It was probably a walk in the park for Rove.
