Rove's fate

If RawStory's source is correct, Rove may not have escaped the doo doo he appeared to be free from just a few short weeks ago:
"Short of a last minute intervention by Rove’s attorney, Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is expected to ask a grand jury investigating the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson to indict Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove for making false statements to the FBI and Justice Department investigators in October 2003, lawyers close to the case say."
The false statement in question surrounds Rove's failure to mention that he spoke with Robert Novak and Matthew Cooper about Plame.

Apparently FItzgerald isn't satisfied with Rove's "I forgot about that one, my bad" perhaps due to the fact that Rove's assistant Susan Ralston testified that she was told not to log Cooper's call. Which doesn't look too good you'll have to admit.

The best part of this whole spectacle is watching the rats rat on each other. The poker game's broken up and the cronies are falling all over themselves to point out exactly where the blame and responsibility should fall.

Novak himself is turning out the president: "I'm confident the president knows who the source is... I'd be amazed if he doesn't." That's what your sub-40% approval ratings buys you these days... (RawStory)
