Don Siegelman Says:

Our hard work has paid off: Karl Rove will soon testify before the House Judiciary Committee!

Your calls and emails made a difference. The White House nudged Rove toward an agreement with House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers.

As a result of your work, I have been asked to appear on the Rachel Maddow Show tonight, March 5th. Her segment on MSNBC-TV comes on at 9 p.m. Eastern and is re-broadcast on MSNBC at 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. I hope you will tune in to watch.

Also, I hope you'll please call and thank Chairman John Conyers at (202) 225-5126. Congressman Conyers has worked boldly and courageously to break the impasse between Congress and Karl Rove's claim of Executive Privilege.

I congratulate John Conyers in securing this crucial step toward the truth and commend the House Judiciary Committee and its staff for its tireless work. We must also encourage the Committee to muster the strength to hold Karl Rove's feet to the fire to the fullest extent of the law until he is finally forthcoming.

And please remember, that as much as this is an important breakthrough toward the truth, there are others -- for example, the husband of the U.S. Attorney who prosecuted me who has been identified as a co-conspirator -- who must also be called before Congress to answer for their part in my prosecution.

Thanks so much for all your help.
