Subpeonas authorized for top White House AidesPosted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) _ A Senate committee has authorized subpoenas for White House political adviser Karl Rove and other top aides involved in the firing of federal prosecutors. Meanwhile, embattled Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is vowing that he will not resign.
Gonzales has been under scrutiny over the firings of eight federal prosecutors. He was in St. Louis this morning for a roundtable discussion on efforts to keep children safe from sexual predators. Responding to media questions after the event, Gonzales said he will not step down. He cited achievements under his watch that have included enforcing civil rights, fighting public corruption and fighting child predators.
Gonzales says he will voluntarily work with Congress on its investigation into the prosecutor firings. He says no one was fired for improper reasons.
