Rove testifies...again

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Fourth chance to get his story right:

It was Rove's fourth appearance before the grand jury. He testified for 4 hours and 15 minutes but said nothing to reporters when he left the courthouse. According to a source familiar with the investigation, Rove was warned by the special prosecutor's office that it could not assure he would not be indicted.
And, Scottie wouldn't say that Bush has full confidence in his brain trust:
Asked if President Bush still has "full confidence in Karl Rove," McClellan declined to answer directly, citing the "ongoing investigation." He added, "Karl continues to do his duties as deputy chief of staff and senior adviser to the president. . . . The president has made it very clear: We're not going to comment on an ongoing investigation."
Well, that's not quite accurate. Someone at the White House talked to the NY Times about the investigation today:
"Everyone is going about the work at hand while bracing for the worst case," said a senior administration official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to get around the official White House position that it will not comment on the investigation.
If the press corps would ask Scottie to answer "on the condition of anonymity" they might get something out of him. Course, it was that whole super secret double background that got this case rolling in the first place.

Okay, keep your fingers crossed for a perp walk next week.
