Rove Is at Center of New Legal Probe
Bloch says there was so much interest and concern about all these allegations that he decided there were enough "credible facts" presented that "reasonable people" needed to look into it.
"It's important in the interest of justice to tell people what we are doing, that there's someone on the job," Bloch told U.S. News. "And that we're doing a thorough and impartial investigation."
Bloch, who, like Democrats in Congress, has subpoena power, says he has not yet reached out to White House counsel Fred Fielding to inform him of the investigations but says he anticipates his cooperation. Bloch well understands the rather dramatic implications of his many probes.
"I would say we've had a number of major investigations," says Bloch. "However, to the memory of others and myself, I don't know that we've had anything like this so potentially far-reaching."
