The Washington Post reports that Karl Rove’s lawyers say they expect him to be indicted. Or at least I think that’s what this sentence means:
Rove’s defense team asserts that President Bush’s deputy chief of staff has not committed a crime but nevertheless anticipates that special prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald could find a way to bring charges in the next two weeks, the source said.
(The source is described as “a source familiar with Rove’s account.”)
Looks as if I might win some money. (And I plan to twist the knife by donating any winnings to Wes Clark’s WESPAC.)
The Post story has a long discussion of potential charges, a discussion which reflects the new conventional wisdom that the Espionage Act, not the Intelligence Identities Protection Act, is likely to be the focus.
