I knew Judy could hum, but I didn't know she could sing!
So, Judy gets out of jail, sings, and there soon we'll have 22 indictments in the Plame Affair?
The D.C. rumor mill is thrumming with whispers that 22 indictments are about to be handed down on the outed-CIA agent Valerie Plame case. The last time the wires buzzed this loud â€” that Tom DeLay would be indicted and would step down from his leadership post in the House â€” the scuttlebutters got it right.
Can it be a coincidence that the White House appears to be distancing President Bush from embattled aide Karl Rove? â€œHeâ€™s been missing in action at more than one major presidential event,â€ a member of the White House press corps tells us.
We may have to haul the champagne cases up from the cellars!
More soberly, Reuters tonight:
As a first step, prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald was expected to notify officials by letter if they have become targets, said the lawyers, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.
Fitzgerald could announce plea agreements, bring indictments, or conclude that no crime was committed. By the end of this month he is expected to wrap up his nearly two-year-old investigation into who leaked CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity.
Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin, declined to say whether his client had been contacted by Fitzgerald. In the past, Luskin has said that Rove was assured that he was not a target.>
Libby's lawyer was not immediately available to comment.
I didn't believe that kidney stone story for a minute....
