New this Afternoon: Marc Ash over at TruthOut has posted again on the subject of the Rove indictment. Read it here. The jest of it is that TruthOut believes that their breaking of the Indictment story forced Rove into deal with Fitz. They are still standing by their story. A very interesting quote from the article:
"The electronic communication from Fitzgerald to Luskin, coming immediately on the heels of our Monday morning, June 12 article "Sealed vs. Sealed" that became the basis for the mainstream media's de facto exoneration of Karl Rove was, our sources told us, negotiated quickly over the phone later that afternoon. Luskin contacted Fitzgerald, reportedly providing concessions that Fitzgerald considered to be of high value, and Fitzgerald reportedly reciprocated with the political cover Rove wanted in the form of a letter that was faxed to Luskin's office.
Our sources provided us with additional detail, saying that Fitzgerald is apparently examining closely Dick Cheney's role in the Valerie Plame matter, and apparently sought information and evidence from Karl Rove that would provide documentation of Cheney's involvement. Rove apparently was reluctant to cooperate and Fitzgerald, it appears, was pressuring him to do so, our sources told us."
Personally, I would rather have Rove over Cheney..Rove is the architect..Dead-eye just the Vice Prez.
