t r u t h o u t - Joe Conason | Rove's Moment of Truth?

Once more for our Roving reporters.
It does not look good for this particular anti-hero.

t r u t h o u t - Joe Conason | Rove's Moment of Truth?: " It is a felony to make a false statement to the FBI, which Rove very clearly did when he failed to mention his conversation with Cooper. His alibi is that he had forgotten that chat, an excuse that scarcely seems plausible so soon after it occurred, particularly because Cooper had written a cover story about the Plame affair. And Rove apparently testified falsely again in February 2004, when he made his first of four appearances before Fitzgerald's grand jury. He apparently didn't change his story until October 2004 - between five and 10 months after Luskin was tipped to Cooper's possible testimony by Novak.

In the meantime, Rove quite consciously allowed White House press secretary Scott McClellan to mislead the press and public by denying that he had played any part in revealing Plame's identity. (Clearly he must have lied to McClellan's face about his involvement around that time.)"
