My Target Letter Drives Rove Back to Grand Jury

"Karl Rove's appearance before a grand jury in the CIA leak case Wednesday comes on the heels of a "target letter" sent to his attorney recently by Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, signaling that the Deputy White House Chief of Staff may face imminent indictment, sources that are knowledgeable about the probe said Wednesday.
It's unclear when Fitzgerald sent the target letter to Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin. Sources close to the two-year-old leak investigation said when Rove's attorney received the letter Rove volunteered to appear before the grand jury for an unprecedented fifth time to explain why he did not previously disclose conversations he had with the media about covert CIA operative Valerie Plame and her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, who criticized the Bush administration's use of pre-war Iraq intelligence.
A federal grand jury target letter is sent to a person in a criminal investigation who is likely to be indicted. A "target" of a grand jury investigation is a person who a prosecutor has substantial evidence to link to a crime." [more from Jason Leopold]

Nice hint, Fitz

Raw Story has a developing story that Rove was given a "target letter." My guess is that is why he and his lawyer asked once again to appear before the grand jury to try and head-off the impending indictments.

I hope he cuts a deal and rolls on Big Dick Cheney and Dubya.

Merry Fitzmas in in April, brilliant!

On Fitzmas Day, St. Patrick razed the dead wood in the White House, while raising everyone's hope and faith in a free and just America once again.

Way to go Fitz. Thankfully there are still a few straight shooters left;-)

Brilliant, indeed. I wonder if he received his target letter before the reshuffling of the WH staff. Do you think it had anything to do with his being removed from overseeing policy? [/snark] By the way, isn't he also supposed to be in charge of the Katrina clean up? He sort of dropped the ball on that one too, didn't he? Genius my ass!

mmm I'm thinking of a bullseye is also a good metaphor.

I'm not in to deals Ms Quinn ...squeeze the little Rove'r as he probably believes [so f&^%ing arrogant] he can

SPIN the grand jury. As after all, isn't that what this entire Administration is about? SPIN?

All smoke and mirrors on SPIN to get done what they wish to do which is the very makings of

EVIL DOERS.

GO PJF AND TEAM.

NO DEALS for the ROVE'R or CHENEY.

You are making history; you are instilling the very patriotic sense of the Constitution and very fabric of what American is made of back in to the public eye.

ALL GOOD

I'll be away for the next week, so please wait until I return to indict. I want to stock up on organic popcorn, herbal tea, dig out some comfy jammies, grab my remote, and watch all the replays on all the channels.

Merry Fitzmas to all of us.

SPB, What do you think of Luskins denial that Rovie didn't get a target letter?
Are they using an alternate universe definition?

EASY - $500 an hour lies. At this point what do they have to lose by denying the inevitable? What is the downside when he does get indicted? This lie will long be forgotten as the news races forward.

I have always said - "Today's news is only a snapshot of history."

CNN - "Karl Rove appeared today before the Grand Jury investigating the disclosure of a CIA agent's identity. He testified voluntarily and unconditionally at the request of Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald to explore a matter raised since Mr. Rove's last appearance in October 2005," Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin, said in a written statement.

"In connection with this appearance, the Special Counsel has advised Mr. Rove that he is not a target of the investigation. Mr. Fitzgerald has affirmed that he has made no decision concerning charges.

One wonders if he can keep track of all the lies. You don't have to worry about making a mistake once in awhile when telling the truth, but you sure had better have instant memory when you're lying. 1 lie = pretty easy
2 lies = a little harder
8/9 lies = oops

Is anybody that good?

Hah. what would the chances be, that this is actually an indictment already by said GJ and, because of the epic proportions of the breath and depth of it [meaning, mmmm don't believe in history we've had administration officials er INDICTED..] so, let the Corrupt Oval spin itself, and figure out a game plan to
a) take away his secret clearance
b) get him out of the WH
c) find a dubious replacement as of course there could be no other within W's corrupt rat-pack
d) try to spin that well, Bush didn't know Karl.

last one a stretch, but the rest, well, I just say Merry Fitzmas.

You know me to well Mr. Fitz. Your story pushed the Snow story out of the front news report. I remembered to not get involved with the spin. Nice seeing you on TV but I'll wait for the grand jury's findings then I'll make a comment.

"When" would be my question to:
"Mr. Rove has cooperated completely with the investigation."

The differences in Rove's first and second testimonies, and that presented today should be... vewy intoowestink. Enough to get him a jail pass? Probably not.

Come to think of it: Bush's 70-min. interview with Fitz should contrast sharply (not the attorney, Jim Sharp) with what Bush would say today.

Luskin says Rove's cooperation is not contingent upon any plea agreement. Good!

Raise your right hand, Mr. Bush, and tell us all about the conversations you had with your brain, Mr. Pinky.

And..."if I were him I wouldn't get Time far out in front on this" shows the media's apparent complicity in the op.

anon. 6:28: Yep, get the severe Straussian right exposed and wiped, as there are a majority of "normals" in both Israel and the U.S. who are dying to live in peace. At home, let's examine the A.E.I. and the Hoover extremists.

Good Evening to you all!

I am back on the blog. A very tiresome day for me. Well, well, well, Porkring Rove is in the news. So, you have given him the "target letter." Keep your eye on Bolten and the Gerbil to see what they will do with Rove and his position. But, definitely, no deal for the Porkrind!

O.K., I can't resist. Do you remember when recess-appointed John Bolton visited Judy Miller in jail?

What do you think they talked about? The weather? How this? "Judy...we're busted- game, set, and match-your sacrifice is no longer needed."

What? Bolton isn't so loquacious at the U.N. lately? He is the one who brought bus loads of raucus brown shirts to Florida to force the end to the presidential recount in 2000, and is now the alleged U.N. ambassador representing Neocon (PNAC) interests, and most certainly not American interests. The two should never by confused.

Last time I checked, the United States was not a nationalist socialist dictatorship, but a republic. I think John, George, Dick, Karl, and others, are confused.
