So we get the info. at noon:
The Justice Department was scheduled to make an announcement ``regarding the status of the special counsel's criminal investigation'' at noon Washington time. Fitzgerald will hold a news conference at 2 p.m.Also, CNN's Dana Bash just read what she called a "carefully worded" statement from Rove's lawyer that said basically they've been told the Special Prosecutor made no decision on whether to bring charges and his status has not changed. Apparently, Rove is happy that he is not being indicted today. But Miles O'Brien responded that means "the story won't go away." The cloud stays over Rove and the White House as long as Karl stays there.
