Let's See if Rove shows up 2.23.09,...So the Nixonian Fred Fielding instructed Rove to IGNORE Supoenas ? Really
Rove has to appear originally 2.2.09, but he asked for an extension, and a chance to appear later in the month- so Conyers changed the date to 2.23.09 ( which might be better as More Justice People are in place)....no more "exeuctive " crap...it's time to Appear and Answer questions...and NO MORE Fielding to give bad legal Advice.....So if he does NOT show..and he is planning to NOT show...I wonder if he goes to Jail...??? ( and yeah, I hope he does....NO More of this Arrogance and Blatant disregard of the Law ).
So if you enjoy reading Supoenas - this one for Rove is a real treat....
The two videos below are from Summer when he did not appear to answer MrConyers Questions....

Conyers Subpoenas Karl Rove: "It's Time to Talk"
(Washington, D.C.) --- Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers, Jr. issued a subpoena to Karl Rove requiring him to testify regarding his role in the Bush Administration's politicization of the Department of Justice, including the US Attorney firings and the prosecution of former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman. The subpoena was issued pursuant to authority granted in H.R. 5 (111th Congress), and calls for Mr. Rove to appear at deposition on Monday, February 2, 2009. Mr. Rove has previously refused to appear in response to a Judiciary Committee subpoena, claiming that even former presidential advisers cannot be compelled to testify before Congress. That "absolute immunity" position was supported by then-President Bush, but it has been rejected by U.S. District Judge John Bates and President Obama has previously dismissed the claim as "completely misguided."
"I have said many times that I will carry this investigation forward to its conclusion, whether in Congress or in court, and today's action is an important step along the way," said Mr. Conyers. Noting that the change in administration may impact the legal arguments available to Mr. Rove in this long-running dispute, Mr. Conyers added "Change has come to Washington, and I hope Karl Rove is ready for it. After two years of stonewalling, it's time for him to talk."
