Rove/Plame: The New Criminologist breaks it all down for you
I went to Google News this morning to see what's been going on with the Rove/Plame grand jury investigation since it was knocked off the news pages by Katrina and Rita. Not much, it turns out, apart from some details of Judith Miller's jailhouse guest list.
In the absence of any real news, though, one British crime tabloid, The New Criminologist, claims to have all the explosive details of special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's upcoming indictments. Buried amid its many fevered dispatches on terror preparedness ("The Small Animal Veterinarian's Role in a Bioterrorist Event") and conspiracies the world scarcely suspects ("Jihad Vegan"), TNC writes that a slew of sealed indictments have been handed down:
"Sources close to the federal grade [sic] jury probe also allegedly told Heneghen a host of administration figures under Bush were indicted, including Vice President Richard Cheney, Chief of Staff Andrew Card, Cheney Chief of Staff I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, former Attorney General John Ashcroft, imprisoned New York Times reporter Judith Miller and former Cheney advisor Mary Matalin. Heneghen, unavailable for comment, also allegedly told sources White House advisor Karl Rove was indicted for perjury in a major document shredding operation cover-up."
Read the whole story. Or don't. Just remember you heard it here first. And probably last.
