Bombshell allegations in court: Karl Rove accused in a plot to fire U.S. Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald

Porcine handmaiden of Satan implicated in yet another corrupt act in which nothing will happen to him afterwards.

At the trial of Antoin "Tony" Rezko, prosecutors revealed Wednesday that former Rezko confidant Ali Ata was prepared to testify that Rezko told him in November 2004 of a plan to pull strings with scumbag and then-White House political director Karl Rove and have Fitzgerald fired.

On Wednesday, assistant U.S. Atty. Carrie Hamilton told U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve that Ata was prepared to testify that Rezko told him Kjellander was working with Rove "to have Fitzgerald removed."

At the time, Fitzgerald also was leading a high-profile investigation into a Bush misadministration leak of the identity of CIA agent Valerie Plame, a probe that eventually led to the perjury conviction of Scooter Libby, top aide to Dick Cheney.

Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin, said his client "does not recall" Kjellander or anyone else arguing for Fitzgerald's removal.

Of course he doesn't! Why should he be any different than anybody else in the misadministration!
