Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid today released the following statement on the Bush administration's efforts to prevent White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove from testifying under oath on the partisan firing of U.S. Attorneys.
"After telling a bunch of different stories about why they fired the U.S. Attorneys, the Bush administration is not entitled to the benefit of the doubt. Congress and the American people deserve a straight answer. If Karl Rove plans to tell the truth, he has nothing to fear from being under oath like any other witness."
