t r u t h o u t - Jason Leopold: Fitzgerald Targets Rove Again

It has taken a while, but now Fitzgeralsd seems to be moving forward again. It is looking bad for Rove, and for another top Bushco aid. We can't be sure which one yet though.

t r u t h o u t - Jason Leopold: Fitzgerald Targets Rove Again: "two things are very clear: either Rove will agree to enter into a plea deal with Fitzgerald or he will be charged with a crime, but he will not be exonerated for the role he played in the leak, based on numerous internal conversations Fitzgerald has had with his staff. If Rove does agree to enter into a plea, Fitzgerald is not expected to discuss any aspect of his probe into Rove, because Rove may be called to testify as a prosecution witness against Lewis 'Scooter' Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney. Libby was indicted last month on five counts of lying to investigators, perjury, and obstruction of justice related to his role in the leak.

Moreover, a second high-ranking official in the Bush administration also faces the possibility of indictment for making false statements to investigators about his role in the leak: National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley."
