Exclusive: Rove not Covered by Executive Privilege in Political
Prosecution Case, Lawyer Says
Rove won't take the Fifth if he testifies. Representatives of the bush White House are no longer advising former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove that he is protected by executive privilege as regards testimony about the alleged political prosecution of an Alabama governor.
In an exchange with "Raw Story," Rove's Washington, D.C. attorney, Robert Luskin, also said Rove won't invoke his Fifth Amendment right to protect himself from self-incrimination, if and when he testifies about the firing of nine US Attorneys and the prosecution of the former governor.
There's been speculation that he would.
This also holds true with the election fraud case using Ohio's tough RICO laws.
