Kate Klonick notes that the ayes have it:
The House Judiciary Committee has just voted to hold Karl Rove in contempt for failing to respond to a subpoena to face questioning from the Committee on the prosecution of former Alabama Gov. Don Siegelman.
The final vote was 20 ayes and 14 nays. With Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) voting “absolutely, 100% aye.”
Rejecting the ad hoc
legal doctrine of “absolute immunity” would seem to be the minimum the Committee can do, but it’s an advance from nothing…
