Rove Ignores Subpoena, Refuses to Testify
Former White House adviser Karl Rove defied a congressional subpoena to testify Thursday about allegations of political pressure at the Justice Department. Lawmakers subpoenaed Rove in May in an effort to force him to talk about whether he was involved in the firing of federal prosecutors two years ago. He had been scheduled to appear at a House Judiciary subcommittee hearing Thursday morning. A placard with his name sat in front of an empty chair at the witness table, with a handful of protesters sitting behind it calling for Rove to be arrested.
