If Truthout has its story straight, Patrick Fitzgerald will ask the grand jury to indict Karl Rove on charges of perjury and lying to investigators in the Valerie Plame case.
Despite vehement denials by his attorney, who said this week that Karl Rove is neither a “target” nor in danger of being indicted in the CIA leak case, the special counsel leading the investigation has already written up charges against Rove, and a grand jury is expected to vote on whether to indict the Deputy White House Chief of Staff sometime next week, sources knowledgeable about the probe said Friday afternoon….
…Rove’s attorney, Robert Luskin, was informed via a target letter that Fitzgerald is prepared to charge Rove for perjury and lying to investigators during Rove’s appearances before the grand jury in 2004 and in interviews with investigators in 2003 when he was asked how and when he discovered that Valerie Plame Wilson worked for the CIA, and whether he shared that information with the media.
Tony Snow will be doing some major spinning if this happens. He may even end up with the Scottie McClellan inner-ear ailment.
