Rove skips hearing for paid speech at seaside resort

While House Democrats fumed over the absence of Karl Rove from hearings investigating his possible interference in the Justice Department, the man himself was well on his way to the Yalta Black Sea resort, Newsweek reported Saturday.

“That’s just extremely contemptuous—it shows the disdain that he has for Congress and which he has encouraged in the Bush White House,” said Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee.

Rove’s lawyer Robert Luskin defended his actions as justifiable given that White House counsel Fred Fielding instructed Rove not to show up because anything he said was protected by executive privilege.
