E-mails released yesterday show that aides to President Bush helped determine the response to a controversy over the firings of nine U.S. attorneys.
Then-White House counsel Harriet Miers and aides to political adviser Karl Rove debated the response in “spirited and sometimes angry e-mail exchanges,” the Washington Post reports.
"These documents show that the White House played an integral role in the firings and their aftermath," said House Judiciary Chairman John Conyers Jr., D-Mich. "This only underscores the need for White House cooperation with this investigation."
