A chorus of peepings emanating from the interior of the fever swamps of the Left may be heard tonight promising that Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald really will deliver the Xmas present found heading the list in every liberal’s letter to Santa: a grand jury indictment of Karl Rove for obstruction of justice in L’Affaire Plame.
Raw Story is reporting:
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.
If I were George W. Bush, I would note that they have all been very bad this year, and I’d transform Fitzgerald’s Xmas gift into coal with a stroke of my pen by pardoning Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, and everyone and anyone connected to the non-existent crime. While, at the same time, I would announce the appointment of a new Special Counsel for the investigation of leaks pertaining to the conduct of the War on Terror, originating from groups of persons both active in, and retired from, the Intelligence Community.
