Time to throw this motherf---er in jail
Posted by Jill | 8:56 PM
Enough with the sternly worded letters and toothless subpoenas, Mr. Conyers. Time to round up Karl Rove and toss him in the slammer:
U.S. House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers (D-MI) has subpoenaed Karl Rove today, yet again (the third time, for those keeping score at home), to give sworn, public testimony before the committee on February 23rd concerning the politicization of the U.S. Dept. of Justice during the Bush Administration.

Today's subpoena was sent to Rove's attorney Robert D. Luskin. It's accompanied by a brief, two-page letter [PDF] in which the Congressman politely refuses a request by the attorney to delay Rove's appearance, yet again. The previous subpoena required Rove's appearance on Feb. 2nd, but was delayed at his request and rescheduled for the 23rd at that time.

Following the previous subpoena, Rove told Fox "News" that he would refuse to testify, and committee member Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) responded on MSNBC by saying that he would either testify, or go to jail.

At the end of today's letter, refusing Luskin's request for further delay, Conyers, rather amusingly, notes:

[G]iven Mr. Rove's public statements that he does not intend to comply with the subpoena, I am puzzled as to why Mr. Rove needs a mutually convenient date to fail to appear.

Isn't it high time someone finally made Karl Rove live within the law?

You know as well as I do that President Obama will not allow that to happen.

True. But, you know, I am seriously hoping Conyers sends properly jackbooted thugs to arrest him (there was a time when contempt of Congress drew serious jail time). Or failing that, nice young football linebackers in suits. With 'roid rage. (Yes, mean of me.)

We either have law that every citizen must obey or suffer the penalty. If Mr. rove will not
comply then to jail he goes...

I have more respect for a two bit pimp than for Karl Rove.
Now Conyers has dropped below my respect for a two bit pimp, too.
