House Judiciary to investigate Rove’s alleged effort to get Fitzgerald fired.

In the corruption trial of Chicago political fundraiser Antoin “Tony” Rezko last week, a federal witness alleged that “Rezko discussed efforts among top Republicans, including former White House political director Karl Rove and GOP national committeeman Robert Kjellander,” to have U.S. attorney Patrick Fitzgerald “fired to derail a corruption probe.” Now, according to Newsweek, the House Judiciary Committee “intends to investigate the facts and circumstances alleged in this testimony.”
