MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman has commended the U.S. House Judiciary Committee for securing an agreement for former White House aide Karl Rove to testify about possibly influencing his prosecution.
In an e-mail to supporters and news reporters, Siegelman encouraged the committee to hold Rove's "feet to the fire" in questioning him about Siegelman's prosecution and conviction in a government corruption case.
Rove and former White House counsel Harriet Miers agreed Wednesday to testify under oath before the House Judiciary Committee. The agreement calls for Rove and Miers to be interviewed
by the House Judiciary Committee in closed depositions. The committee says it also might call the two for public testimony.
The agreement says the interview with Rove will include facts relating to the prosecution of Siegelman, a Democrat.
