Will Rove Testify? - Newsweek National News - MSNBC.com
Both Rove and Bartlett have already received trial subpoenas from Libby’s defense lawyers, according to lawyers close to the case who asked not to be identified talking about sensitive matters. While that is no guarantee they will be called, the odds increased this week after Libby’s lawyer, Ted Wells, laid out a defense resting on the idea that his client, Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff, had been made a “scapegoat” to protect Rove.
Which begs the question: Protect Rove from what? Doesn't this imply that Rove broke the law? Will bringing one or the other of these men to the witness stand give prosecutor Fitzgerald his chance to nail Rove on yet to be determined charges? Will they get caught lying on the stand or through Cheney to the wolves?
Stay tuned. At the very least, we'll get to see Rove and Bartlett scurry like rats trying to get off the hook of the witness stand, where they would have to answer questions under oath and in front of the public. Yikes! That's got to scare them.
