Guest web_norah Posted August 13 Report Share Posted August 13 Bush's political guru Karl Rove to resign at end of monthTop White House adviser Karl Rove, who has often been called George W. Bush's political "brain" and linked to the most controversial decisions of his presidency, said in an interview published Monday that he will resign at the end of this month.from Euronews:Earlier this month, President Bush cited executive privilege in rejecting a subpoena for Rove to appear before a Senate probe into the controversial sacking of federal prosecutors. And then there is the Plame affair in which the cover of CIA agent Valerie Plame was blown in the press. Rove was widely suspected of being involved. Although criminal proceedings against him were dropped, a civil case is ongoing.from ReutersTwo years ago, the White House said Rove did not leak the identity of covert CIA operative Valerie Plame. Rove testified five times before a federal grand jury investigating the Plame leak and, in June 2006, special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald decided not to indict Rove in his investigation into the leak.will he be as lucky as Scooter? :-\ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
