Oh my God! Rove Fourth Trip to Grand Jury, is GOOD News!

MSNBC: Rove to beg for Life before Grand Jury!"

Just kidding, but from the AP you wouldn't know it.

(cue the music)

"WASHINGTON - Karl Rove is getting a fourth and likely final chance to convince grand jurors he did nothing criminal in the CIA leak case, an appearance that carries some risks as prosecutors are close to wrapping up their probe.

Rove, who long has been one of President Bush’s closest aides, could appear as early as Friday, and prosecutors are warning him there is no guarantee he will not be indicted.

The White House has shifted from categorical denials two years ago that Rove or his chief of staff, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, were involved in the leak of a covert CIA officer’s name to “no comment” today."


Got news for you. If you're appearing before a Grand Jury (of which I worked with over a few years in my law enforcement years), it's usually good news.

AP Spin aside, it's just loose ends, and it pertains to Cooper - who incidently,..you haven't hear from since July when he Chris Matthews Co-Anchor.

Yet this article is down right hilarious.

If you've been reading the NY Times, WAPO over the last few weeks you see that they are writing their articles as if their delivering the "closing statement".

It's like, "Ok, Fitz....just in case you missed it....here's the deal:"

"The revelations flowing out of Fitzgerald’s CIA leak investigation so far offer a public snapshot of Washington at work: A White House with its credibility on the line tries to deal with a political problem by talking confidentially to reporters.

In this instance, the political problem was Wilson and his statements that the administration had twisted prewar intelligence on Iraq. The criticism came as the U.S. military engaged in a fruitless search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The existence of such weapons were the primary reason the administration gave to justify going to war.

Eight days after Wilson made his allegations, columnist Robert Novak identified Wilson’s wife as a CIA operative, saying she had suggested her husband for a mission to Africa for the agency.

The trip led subsequently to Wilson’s conclusion that the administration had manipulated intelligence to exaggerate the Iraqi threat.

Novak said his sources were two senior administration officials. Rove spoke to Novak about Wilson’s wife and is apparently one of Novak’s sources. The other is still a public mystery. Novak is believed to have cooperated with Fitzgerald’s investigation, though he has declined to comment on the matter.

The White House denials of Rove’s and Libby’s involvement collapsed three months ago, when Time magazine reporter Matt Cooper testified that Rove had been one of his sources for a story that identified Wilson’s wife. Libby was another of Cooper’s sources for the story, which asked the question, “Has the Bush administration declared war on a former ambassador?”"

Notice the "Children of the Corn Mantra" - "The White House Attempt to discredit Joe Wilson", theme?

This is the scenario that the MSM has harped since day one. Yet, I'm ready and willing to tell you that this is and has NOT been what Fitzgerald has looked at for a long time.

Again, there was no need to discredit Wilson, as he discredited himself. Further, as I and others have uncovered so fare, there is more to Joe/Larry C. Johnson/David Corn/Walter Pincus/George Soros/Moveon.org/Matt Cooper/Mandy Grunwald than meets the eye. Much more!

In the meantime those who are still talking to the Grand Jury don't have half as much to worry about as those who haven't said a thing in months or years - THEY ought to be running by now.
