In a world where we all have spent a lot of time in recent years waiting for a reckoning for injustice, it is quite possible that the Jackson mayor and former President Bush's hatchet man will appear before a judge the same dayFeb. 2. The Associated Press is reporting about Karl Rove:
The House Judiciary Committee chairman subpoenaed former White House adviser Karl Rove on Monday to testify about the Bush administration's firing of nine U.S. attorneys and its prosecution of a former Democratic governor. Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., said the ongoing legal battle to get Rove and other former Bush administration aides to testify may have success with a new president in the White House. Former President George W. Bush upheld Rove and two other senior aides who asserted they did not have to testify before Congress about their actions in the White House. The legal dispute between the executive and legislative branches of government is before a federal appeals court. Rove's lawyer, Robert Luskin, did not return phone messages seeking comment.
The subpoena commanded Rove to appear on Feb. 2 for a deposition on the U.S. attorney firings and the prosecution of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman, a Democrat.
And February 2 is Groundhog Day, too. Will this be a, um, foreshadow, of things to come?

Rove has danced around this subpoena for a very long time. Conyers is making it perfectly clear that he means business and there will be no BUSH to stand between him and the law.
