According to Newsweek, Libby’s lawyers have subpoenaed Karl Rove.
First, I should confess that I secretly hope Scooter Libby doesn’t have to go to jail. No one with a name that cute could possibly survive the big house. (Yes, I know he’d go to a minimum security facility, it was a joke for Pete’s sake.)
Still, assuming his defense team continues to make life unpleasant for the White House, personally I’ll be satisfied if he receives probation. (And may I suggest having him do his community service cleaning the toilets at the CIA).
Meanwhile, here’s the question of the day: Is Libby’s legal team bluffing (pressuring Bush to pardon him), or are they seriously going to call Rove as a witness?
Please let it be the latter, pretty please with sugar on top. Talk about a great show. I’m generally no fan of cameras in the courtroom, but not having Rove’s testimony televised (which in federal court it won’t be) will truly be a crime against entertainment.
