Did Ashcroft Give Rove a Heads-Up?

-- by Dave Johnson

From The Democratic Party blog, through AMERICAblog
the story of Attorney General John Ashcroft being briefed on FBI interviews of Karl Rove.

Several of the federal investigators were also deeply concerned that then attorney general John Ashcroft was personally briefed regarding the details of at least one FBI interview with Rove, despite Ashcroft's own longstanding personal and political ties to Rove
This led to career Justice Department investigators demanding that Ashcroft step aside from the investigation, finally allowing a Deputy Attorney General to appoint a Special Prosecutor.
