Conyers on Rove

May 16, 2008 - by Donny Shaw

I wouldn’t want anyone to miss this juicy post over at the Crypt:

>Just off the House floor today, the Crypt overheard House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers tell two other people: “We’re closing in on Rove. Someone’s got to kick his ass.”
>
>Asked a few minutes later for a more official explanation, Conyers told us that Rove has a week to appear before his committee. If he doesn’t, said Conyers, “We’ll do what any self-respecting committee would do. We’d hold him in contempt. Either that or go and have him arrested.”
>
>Conyers said the committee wants Rove to testify about his role in the imprisonment of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman, among other things.
>
>“We want him for so many things, it’s hard to keep track,” Conyers said.

We’ll see. Conyers has been known to talk big on holding Administration officials accountable in the past without ever actually following through.
