WASHINGTON (AP) — Former White House aide Karl Rove and a special prosecutor have ended their interview about the firing of U.S. attorneys during the Bush administration.

Rove left his lawyer’s office about a half-hour after prosecutor Nora Dannehy, who is weighing whether to bring criminal charges in the politically charged dismissals.

The former presidential adviser declined comment as he left the interview, but a spokeswoman for his lawyer said Rove cooperated and tried to answer the prosecutor’s questions.

Dannehy’s inquiry follows an earlier Justice Department inquiry in which Rove and other Republican officials refused to cooperate. That investigation concluded that political considerations played a role in the firings of as many as four prosecutors.
