Well it's official - although your's truly told you all along - Rove won't be frog-marched.

"WASHINGTON - Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald has informed Karl Rove’s lawyer that he will not be prosecuted in the CIA leak case, NBC News reports.

Attorney Robert Luskin said that special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald informed him of the decision on Monday, ending months of speculation about the fate of one of President Bush’s closest advisers. Rove testified five times before a grand jury.

Fitzgerald has already secured a criminal indictment against Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby.

“On June 12, 2006, Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald formally advised us that he does not anticipate seeking charges against Karl Rove,” Luskin said in a statement."

Heh.....Jason Leopold, line 2, it's your editor.

As I said, Rove was never going to be indicted. So that will leave the MSM and the lunatics on the left (same difference) spinning the results and mixing the toxic brew. But the fact is that all those appearances before Fitz's Grand Jury - just maybe - weren't "11th hour" appeals to to clear himself, but to provide more information and evidence against someone else.

I'll bet that there are a few Nervous Nells in the house.

Just as the story is breaking, I'll be posting on it all day long.

UPDATE: Senator Chuck Schumer wants Fitzgerald to issue a report and explain his findings.....

Only problem, He can't, and therefore won't. Sorry Chuck.

UPDATE II: Heh! Wilson/Plame's lawyer threatens the possibility of a civil suit. Yeah, BRING IT ON. FULL DISCOVERY. Yeah, I like that ideal then we can all hear about Wilson and the VIPS and Valerie and NOW and the DNC and Breakfast at Kristoff's. Yeah - Bring it on, let's get it all on the table.

Also - how could I forget, Tom Mcguire - king of the Plame Game and his take

Time Magazine weighs in and no, Matt Cooper didn't write it....heh.
