National Review is reporting, what, oh that possibly, maybe, perhaps, Rove is in trouble.
There have been rumors flying around Washington in the last few days that Karl Rove, the president’s top political adviser, might soon be indicted in the CIA leak investigation. At least for now, the rumors appear to be based on someone hearing that someone else had heard something, or that someone had gotten a sense that something was about to happen and told someone else. Are there any facts to back up such gossip and guessing? No one seems to know.
But it is true that there is growing nervousness among people who support Rove’s side in the case. They know that prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, in addition to presenting some new evidence to a new federal grand jury, has also re-presented previously-gathered evidence to that grand jury. To most observers, that suggests Fitzgerald could be planning to indict someone.
Also, Bob Novak says to stop asking who leaked Valerie Plame’s name to him.
Bug the president as to whether he should reveal who the source is.
Fitzmas season isn’t over.
