We're sure Congress will still be seeking Karl RoveKarl Christian RoveThe Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Pass USMCA Coalition - Restrictive state abortion laws ignite fiery 2020 debate Valerie Plame to run for Congress in New Mexico Karl Rove and David Axelrod partner for online class on winning elections MORE's testimony. The White House will probably take the same line as they have with Harriet Miers, which is that executive privilege prevents him from testifying, and they're not going to waive it. They'll do everything they can to keep him from testifying. He's the one they want to testify least, because he knows where all the bodies are buried.

That said, he should offer his testimony to Congress. In an open society, the public deserves to know the truth about what the government is up to. Just because they can claim executive privilege doesn't mean they have to.

In any event, this claim of executive privilege regarding Rove and Harriet Miers could still lead to a constitutional showdown in the courts. We don't think Congress will just accept a claim of executive privilege.
