White House Plans To Block Rove Aide Testimony; Miers Undecided

The White House appeared set for an expanded showdown with congressional investigators in the probe of the firing of eight US Attorneys over the weekend.

An attorney for Sara Taylor, a former top aide to White House adviser Karl Rove, notified the Senate that she was unlikely to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee July 11.

At the same time, former Counsel to President George W. Bush Harriet Miers told RAW STORY she did not know if she would appear before the House Judiciary Committee July 12.

An attorney for Taylor informed the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee that the White House sought to block her testimony.

The White House stonewalling Congressional oversight?  Quelle surprise!  It's astounding to me that with so many of the Nixon White House still trolling around the halls of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue that the most fundamental lesson of Watergate appears lost on them: it's not the crime, but the cover up that gets them every time.
