Why House Committee wanted Rove behind closed doors

E-mail Print PDF

The House Judiciary Committee chose to interview former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove behind closed doors because they wanted more time to question him, and not as a concession to Bush Administration representatives, sources say.

Both aides confirmed that Rove would not be sworn in before his testimony but explained that testimony before Congress is de facto sworn testimony and any false statements would in fact be perjury regardless.

Asked why in that case Congress bothers to swear people in during public hearings, one of the aides quipped, “Because it looks good.”

TVNL Comment: It will be held in secret so we, the public, don't see what a crock this is. We won't see how many crimes Congress will ignore or are complicit in.
