White House Caught in Lawyer Lies

The email trail is a tough road for the Bush White House.

ABC News has gotten hold of White House emails showing Karl Rove was more involved in the US Attorney purge than the Administration has let on.

The White House has flat out denied that Mr Rove had anything to do with the firings. But sources told ABC that an email from January 2005 show Mr Rove first raising the idea of firing all 93 US Attorneys.

The official White House line has been that Harriet Miers alone had suggested the firings. The emails show that Karl Rove and Attorney General Alberto Gonzales were both involved in the discussions. (ABC)

The emails are scheduled for release Friday.
