Looks like there will be a decision shortly on Plame-gate indictments

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

So the rumors swirling around today may in fact be true. As you know, we reported earlier that there are rumors of impending indictments surrounding Plame-gate. We now find out that in fact the special prosecutor will make his decision in days. Interesting timing that we get this confirmation only hours after the rumors surfaced.

According to Reuters:

The federal prosecutor investigating who leaked the identity of a CIA operative is expected to signal within days whether he intends to bring indictments in the case, legal sources close to the investigation said on Wednesday.

As a first step, prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald was expected to notify officials by letter if they have become targets, said the lawyers, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Fitzgerald could announce plea agreements, bring indictments, or conclude that no crime was committed. By the end of this month he is expected to wrap up his nearly two-year-old investigation into who leaked CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity.
Earlier today, Raw Story reported that Karl Rove may have been named a target by prosecutors. That would be a very important development. Now, his lawyer, who repeatedly stated that Rove was not a target, isn't talking:
Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin, declined to say whether his client had been contacted by Fitzgerald. In the past, Luskin has said that Rove was assured that he was not a target.
Stay tuned...this is getting good.
