t r u t h o u t - Jason Leopold | For Rove, New Testimony, New Problems

More tales from the Plame labrynth.
I have picked out this tidbit necause it points quite strongly to a legal case emerging against Rove.
Fitzgerald almost certainly wants to dig deeper into Rove though. That is why he needed a new grand jury.

t r u t h o u t - Jason Leopold | For Rove, New Testimony, New Problems: "Although news reports over the past year have specifically zeroed in on Rove's alleged failure to disclose to the grand jury his conversations with Time's Cooper, there is more scrutiny being placed on his initial testimony, because it's likely his conversations with Novak and Cooper would have still been fresh in his mind, considering the many front page news stories about the Plame Wilson's outing and the fact that Rove and Libby in particular had been rumored to be sources of the leak. Rove finally did testify that he spoke with Cooper - in October 2004, exactly a year after he was first questioned - but only after Cooper was held in contempt by the judge presiding over the case and compelled to testify about the identity of his source."
