This will be fun to watch:
The Democratic senator leading the inquiry into the dismissal of federal prosecutors said today that he wanted Karl Rove and other top aides to President Bush to testify publicly and under oath, setting up a confrontation between Congress and the White House, which has said it is unlikely to agree to such a demand.
Senator Patrick J. Leahy, the Democratic chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said his committee would vote Thursday on whether to issue subpoenas for Mr. Rove, as well as Harriet E. Miers, the former White House counsel, and William Kelley, the deputy White House counsel, in the inquiry, which centers on whether the White House allowed politics to interfere with law enforcement.
The question of whether Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales would be forced to step down as a result of the inquiry dominated the Sunday morning talk shows here, a staple of weekend life in Washington. The White House press secretary, Tony Snow, said in a brief interview today that Mr. Bush continues to have confidence in Mr. Gonzales, despite the speculation.
Why not testify? After all, if you haven’t done anything wrong, you don’t have anything to hide.
Personally, I say we subject them to strict interrogation methods. After all, those methods aren’t torture.
