I know, I’m getting ahead of myself. But the prospect of Karl Rove being indicted for ‘outing’ Valerie Wilson is too good to be true.
From today’s New York Times:
The special prosecutor [Patrick Fitzgerald] in the C.I.A. leak case has summoned Karl Rove, the senior White House adviser, to return next week to testify to a federal grand jury in a step that could mean charges will be filed in the case, lawyers in the case said Thursday.
And can ‘Scooter’ Libby be far behind?
Mr. Fitzgerald has indicated that he is not entirely finished with Judith Miller, the reporter for The New York Times who recently testified before the grand jury…According to a lawyer familiar with the case, Mr. Fitzgerald has asked Ms. Miller to meet him next Tuesday to further discuss her conversations with I. Lewis Libby, the vice president’s chief of staff…
Mr. Fitzgerald is also re-examining grand jury testimony by Mr. Libby, the lawyers said, but it is unknown whether he has been asked to appear again before the grand jury.
