Judiciary Committee approves resolution holding Rove in contempt of Congress

E-mail Print PDF

The House Judiciary Committee has voted 20-14 to approve a contempt of Congress resolution against former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove for his failure to appear after a Congressional subpoena.

Voting along party lines Wednesday morning, the committee said Rove broke the law by failing to appear at a July 10 hearing on allegations of White House influence over the Justice Department, including whether Rove encouraged prosecutions against Democrats.

The committee decision is a recommendation. It remains unclear whether Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will allow a final vote.

TVNL Comment: All a show. Nothing will happen. Congress is like a cop yelling to an escaping criminal: "Stop! Or I'll say stop again!"
