Rove Indicted?

Truthout is reporting that Karl Rove has been indicted and the official announcement will come this week. I’ll wait for the official word before I do a jig.

Saturday 13 May 2006

Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald spent more than half a day Friday at the offices of Patton Boggs, the law firm representing Karl Rove.

During the course of that meeting, Fitzgerald served attorneys for former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove with an indictment charging the embattled White House official with perjury and lying to investigators related to his role in the CIA leak case, and instructed one of the attorneys to tell Rove that he has 24 hours to get his affairs in order, high level sources with direct knowledge of the meeting said Saturday morning.

Robert Luskin, Rove’s attorney, did not return a call for comment. Sources said Fitzgerald was in Washington, DC, Friday and met with Luskin for about 15 hours to go over the charges against Rove, which include perjury and lying to investigators about how and when Rove discovered that Valerie Plame Wilson was a covert CIA operative and whether he shared that information with reporters, sources with direct knowledge of the meeting said.

It was still unknown Saturday whether Fitzgerald charged Rove with a more serious obstruction of justice charge. Sources close to the case said Friday that it appeared very likely that an obstruction charge against Rove would be included with charges of perjury and lying to investigators.

  2. It may be too early for Fitzmas but once he’s facing federal charges, there’s no telling how much he will sing about how far this goes. Maybe we could have an impeachment hearing for Fitzmas.

  3. OMG that picture made me laugh. Is that for real? Where did you find that? I just love the look on his face.

  4. I’d be careful with this. metafilter linked to a similar story awhile back I think one asking that Bush testify at the trial or something and it turned out to be fake. what is truthout’s credentials anyway?

  5. Well, it’s 11:30 AM and I really don’t think the Rove bombshell is going to come today. Make no mistake, Rove’s going to be indicted for something, somewhere, someday. That being said, would somebody take that cockroach over at “truthout” out for a nice hot cup of writhing agony?
    Jerk.

  6. Full-on fakeout. It’s just wishful thinking from the lefties. They live in their own little world – reality optional.
