Novak: Former Rove aide seeks immunity to testify in House Abramoff probe
Published: Thursday May 17, 2007
A former top aide to White House adviser Karl Rove is seeking immunity to testify before a Congressional committee investigating government corruption surrounding convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff, columnist Robert Novak reports today.
Susan Ralston, Rove’s former executive assistant, is seeking immunity based on the advice of her lawyers before testifying before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Novak reports. Novak says that Ralston told a Republican on the committee of her plans and he was told by another GOP committee member. Before joining Rove at the White House in 2001, Ralston was Abramoff’s assistant, and he recommended Rove hire her.
