How Accurate Was the 'Rove Indicted' Story?On Saturday afternoon, we ran a breaking story titled, "Karl Rove Indicted on Charges of Perjury, Lying to Investigators." We assumed that we were well ahead of the mainstream media and that we would be subsequently questioned. Right on both counts.What everyone is asking right now is how accurate is the story? Has Rove in fact been indicted? The story is accurate, and Karl Rove's attorneys have been served with an indictment.In short, we had two sources close to the Fitzgerald investigation who were explicit about the information that we published, and a former high-ranking state department official who reported communication with a source who had "direct knowledge" of the meeting at Patton Boggs. In both instances, substantial detail was provided and matched.We had confirmation. We ran the story.
Talk Left has a good post up about this situation and how they see it. Perhaps Jason's source's are not attorneys and unfamiliar with some of the jargon. Talk Left states after numerous convo's with Jason Leopold this weekend, if his sources did in fact lie to him..Jason Leopold will identify them..stay tuned sportsfans.
