Karl Rove Indictment

Rumors about that Karl Rove will be indicted for perjury over the Valerie Plame affair. See here, here and here.

Should this happen, it will be yet another crack in the administration which refuses to abide by any reasonable notions of the rule of law.

Essentially, Rove will be indicted for lying to the grand jury investigating the Plame affair, in which the name of Valerie Plame, a CIA agent, was leaked to the media. Her husband was a prominent critic of George Bush’s claim that Iraq sold yellowcake to Nigeria, or something similar.

In any case, it is great to see prosecutors with the guts to go after the big boys. Somebody like Rove, a ruthless, behind-the-scenes operator, almost never gets nailed for anything.

I can’t wait to see what happens.
