Rove will not be charged in Plame affair

In a story guaranteed to send Kossacks into a broiling rage, it has been announced that Karl Rove will not be charged in Plamegate.

Top White House aide Karl Rove has been told by prosecutors he won't be charged with any crimes in the investigation into the leak of a CIA officer's identity, his lawyer said Tuesday, lifting a heavy burden from one of President Bush's most trusted advisers.

Attorney Robert Luskin said that special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald informed him of the decision on Monday, ending months of speculation about the fate of Rove, the architect of Bush's 2004 re-election now focused on stopping Democrats from capturing the House or Senate in this November's elections.


I'm glad to see that Rove was able to navigate the waters of the Grand Jury without earning himself indictments of perjury and obstruction of justice a la Libby and Clinton in recent years.

Now, we can only wonder when Joe Wilson will be indicted as he is alleged to have been telling everyone he met that his wife worked for the CIA.

Rove's role in Plamegate looked shaky from the beginning. Either he really didn't have anything to do with it, or he covered his tracks well. I guess we'll never know.
