WASHINGTON, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- President George W. Bush's top political adviser, Karl Rove, testified Friday before a grand jury investigating White House leaks, Time magazine reported.

Robert D. Luskin (born January 21, 1950) is an attorney and partner in the law firm of Patton Boggs LLP, specializing in White-collar crime and federal and state government investigations. He is currently the personal attorney for White House senior advisor and chief political strategist Karl Rove, representing Rove in the special investigations into the outing of covert operative Valerie Plame's position within the CIA as a WMD specialist.

Luskin is a graduate of Harvard University and Harvard Law School, and a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University. He worked in the US Department of Justice, specializing in RICO enforcement, and helped supervise the ABSCAM investigation of the early 80s. Since entering private practice, he has represented both witnesses and investigative targets in independent counsel, criminal, and congressional investigations. Luskin is also a lecturer at the University of Virginia School of Law, where he teaches one course each spring in Labor Racketeering.

In 1997, US Attorney Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island accused Luskin of "willful blindness" for accepting $505,125 in gold bars as well as Swiss Wire transfers of $169,000 from Stephen Saccoccia. Saccoccia is a convicted money-launderer who laundered money for several Colombian drug cartels. Luskin represented Saccoccia in the appellate phase of the case well after Saccoccia was convicted. Whitehouse argued that Saccoccia's payments to Luskin were related to Saccoccia's broad money-laundering scheme and that the money should be returned to the government. In 1998, Luskin settled with the government, forfeiting $245,000 in fees.
