Prosecutor questions Rove on fired US attorneys

May 15, 2009 10:41:15 AM PDT
A special prosecutor has ended her questioning of former White House aide Karl Rove in the investigation of the politically charged firing of U.S. attorneys during the Bush administration. Prosecutor Nora Dannehy and her deputies left the downtown Washington office of Rove's lawyer shortly after midday, about four hours after they arrived.

Dannehy declined to comment when asked about the interview and whether Rove answered her questions.

An internal Justice Department investigation during the Bush administration recommended a criminal inquiry, saying the lack of cooperation by Rove and other senior administration officials left gaps in their findings that should be investigated further.
