Conyers calling for Rove's noggin
The Toad needs to be squashed; Conyers is getting the ball rolling.
(via Raw Story). Looks like Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), patron saint of the Downing Street Minutes effort, is out front again, with a letter calling for Karl Rove to explain his role in the Plame CIA outing or to step down. Why is Conyers the lone voice out there? Excerpt:
We write in order to urge that you require your Deputy White House Chief of Staff, Karl Rove, to either come forward immediately to explain his role in the Valerie Plame matter or to resign from your Administration.
Notwithstanding whether Mr. Rove intentionally violated the law in leaking information concerning former CIA operative Valerie Plame, we believe it is not tenable to maintain Mr. Rove as one of your most important advisors unless he is willing to explain his central role in using the power and authority of your Administration to disseminate information regarding Ms. Plame and to undermine her husband, Ambassador Joseph Wilson.
