Taylor to accept subpoena.

Posted on

"Taylor to accept subpoena."

A lawyer representing freshly subpoenaed Sara Taylor, the former Rove deputy and White House political director, said today he “would accept the subpoena issued by the Senate Judiciary Committee in the firings of eight U.S. attorneys.”

But that doesn’t mean Taylor will testify. The White House appears likely to assert executive privilege try to block the subpoena. That would set up a court fight. [...]

It’s thought to be unlikely that Taylor would seek any kind of immunity, as former Justice Department official Monica Goodling did.
