More dark clouds for the Bush White House
Five times before the grand jury investigating the leaking of CIA agent Valerie Plame's name! Must be uneasy nights for Karl Rove. If he is indicted then it would be another issue to add to the growing list of problems facing the White House. Dan Froomkin in the Post
: "In his fifth appearance before the grand jury, Rove spent considerable time arguing that it would have been foolish for him to knowingly mislead investigators about his role in the disclosure of the identity of undercover CIA officer Valerie Plame to the media, the source said. His grand jury appearance, which was kept secret even from Rove's closest White House colleagues until shortly before he went to court yesterday, suggests that prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald remains keenly interested in Rove's role in the case."
