Karl Rove gets House subpoena

From Times Wire Reports

The House Judiciary Committee subpoenaed President Bush's former chief political advisor, Karl Rove, to testify about whether the White House improperly meddled with the Justice Department.

Accusations of politics influencing decisions at the department -- including the firing of nine U.S. attorneys in 2006 -- led to the resignation last year of Bush's attorney general, Alberto Gonzales. It's unclear if Rove will testify; the White House cites executive privilege.
