Oh, this is getting so good. Lots of news about Rove and it is really fun reading the articles. Tucked in to all the spin from the lawyers and White House staffers (on super double secret background, of course), there are some really juicy nuggets. Here are several of the snippets that have me even more hopeful that we'll see Karl doing the perp walk. From AP:
Stephen Gillers, a New York University law professor, said that it was unusual for a witness to be called back to the grand jury four times and that the prosecutor's legally required warning to Rove before this next appearance is "an ominous sign" for the presidential adviser.From the Washington Post:
A source close to Rove said Bush's chief political adviser and his legal team are now genuinely concerned he could face charges.And from the New York Times:
Mr. Fitzgerald's conversations with lawyers in recent days have cast a cloud over the inquiry, sweeping away the confidence once expressed by a number of officials and their lawyers who have said that he was unlikely to find any illegality.and this from that same Times article:
Several lawyers who have been involved in the case expressed surprise and concern over the recent turn of events and are increasingly convinced that Mr. Fitzgerald could be poised to charge someone with a crime for discussing with journalists the identity of an undercover C.I.A. officer.
