KARL ROVE TO BE QUESTIONED BY PROSECUTOR
The aim: to determine if officials obstructed justice in the dismissals of U.S. attorneys.
May 15, 2009
Washington -- Karl Rove will be interviewed today as part of a criminal investigation into the firing of U.S. attorneys under President George W. Bush, two sources say.
Rove, a former senior aide to Bush, will be questioned by Connecticut prosecutor Nora Dannehy, who in September was named to examine whether former Justice Department and White House officials lied or obstructed justice in connection with the dismissal of federal prosecutors in 2006.
