Matthew Blake of the Washington Independent is reporting on the House Judiciary Committee which is holding a "hearing" on the U.S. attorney firings. It seems questions directed to the inspector general of the Justice Department have centered on whether Karl Rove and Harriet Miers will cooperate. Along the way, Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) asked whether a presidential pardon might preclude Rove from testifying before the committee. The inspector general, somewhat baffled by the question, guessed not. Blake, the reporter, notes the obvious: Rove "has yet to be charged with a crime (besides contempt of Congress)." See story here.
