The Senate Judiciary has approved criminal contempt resolutions against Karl Rove and Josh Bolten by a vote of 12-8. The resolutions will move to the Senate floor, but no action there is expected until next year.
"The White House counsel asserts that executive privilege covers all documents and information in the possession of the White House," Leahy said, referring to White House counsel Fred Fielding. "They have further and claimed immunity even to have to appear and respond to this committee's subpoeas for Mr. Rove and Mr. Bolten. And they contend that their blanket claim of executive privilege cannot be tested but must be accepted by the Congress as the last word."
