More overtures of the spineless majority continuing down the road of eventually caving in (after much chest-beating and expressed outrage). Just pathetic.
House Judiciary Committee Democrats on Monday renewed their demand that former White House political adviser Karl Rove testify publicly on the politicization of the Justice Department but suggested they may accept a compromise in which Rove would be interviewed in private without taking an oath to tell the truth.

The committee on May 22 subpoenaed Rove to testify at a July 10 hearing on the White House's role in the firing of nine U.S. attorneys in 2006 and his alleged involvement in the prosecution of Don Siegelman, the former Democratic governor of Alabama.

(my bold)
To let sociopath Rove speak while not under oath is a complete waste of time and the Committee likely full well knows this fact. They might as well do the interview over the phone or better yet over coffee at a diner. Give me a break.
