Sources Confirm Rove is a Target

Wed Apr 26th, 2006 at 03:54:10 PM EDT :: Fitzgerald Investigation

"On Monday, I had a conversation with several sources close to the CIA leak case who told me that Karl Rove would return to the grand jury Wednesday for the fifth time. Those sources told me that his appearance was the result of a target letter sent to his attorney Robert Luskin by Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. The same sources said that Rove's status changed from being a "subject" of the probe to becoming a "target," meaning that Fitzgerald had enough evidence linking Rove to a crime and told that to Luskin. On Wednesday morning, when the news broke that Rove was going to testify for an unprecedented fifth time, I confirmed with sources close to the investigation that Rove did in fact receive a target letter. This was the case, they said. I then immediately called Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin, for a comment about the target letter. Luskin didn't respond.
But upon leaving court Wednesday, after Rove testified for four hours, Luskin issued a statement saying that Rove was not a target of the probe. My sources maintain that Rove is a target and that Luskin understood that. I called Luskin again to get his statement. But he did not return the call. Rove's spokesman at the White House also weighed in, specifically denying my report that Rove received a target letter. This is the same White House that has refused to discuss this case for more than two years but decided on Wednesday to break its silence and respond to my story and deny that it's true. That seems odd."
Come to think of it, Jason's picture does resemble the guy who delivers Krispy Creme doughnuts to our office every morning!

Your letter has drawn alot of attention. I also notice that the attorney for Rove is twisting the truth. Jason must have some good friends to get the real info. Oh Fitz you've got these guys on the run. It's a good day. Oh and I'm not cunning I just learned that from you.

As usual Jason Leopold is on a roll. He know that Porkrind Rove is going to be roasted.

Switching gears:

Speaking of Truthout, I just received this article via email in relation to Karl Rove. This journalist was thinking was I was thinking. Do you think that it is perfect timing for Tony "Snow job" to step in as WH press secretary as the same time in which Rove is called in to the Grand Jury! I did think that Senor would have gotten the job because of his connections with the Carlyle Group and being Iraq spokesman. But, I think that the Gerbil and company was watching Fitz's move. When Fitz presented more eveidence to the Grand Jury about Rove, the WH went immediately with "deputy dog" Snow rather than Senor to control and dismantle the media and free press. Anyway, here is an excerpt of the article:

White House Snow Job
By Sidney Blumenthal
The Guardian UK
Wednesday 26 April 2006

"The hiring of Tony Snow, the former Fox News anchor and talk show host, as White House press secretary is an attempt to put a human face on a damaged administration at war with the press. Unlike President Bush's previous press secretaries, Ari Fleischer and Scott McClellan, Snow has no history with George W Bush, or, perhaps as important, no relationship with Karl Rove, "The Architect," Bush's chief political aide who reigns supreme over the communications operation.

The desperation of the administration, besieged on all sides, was put in sharp relief by the immediate overshadowing of Snow's appointment with the news bulletin that by the special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has summoned Rove today back to the federal grand jury."

Hindrind Rove?? That must a new name for Rove. Don't forget Nursing patient Rummy on the stand. Oh, I am sorry, the judge may just have commit him to the ward due to Rummy's unstable mind!
