The Plame-Plot Thickens

The rumor mill has begun working overtime in the last 48 hours or so, pumping out prediction after predication on what might happen in the very near future in the Valerie Plame Wilson leak investigation. Will there be indictments? How many will be delivered to the White House? Or will the whole thing fizzle?

Nothing concrete on any of those fronts, not yet anyway. But an AP story out this afternoon is most interesting: the wire service reports that "Federal prosecutors have accepted an offer from presidential adviser Karl Rove to give 11th-hour testimony in the case of a CIA officer's leaked identity but have warned they cannot guarantee he won't be indicted, according to people directly familiar with the investigation."

The AP calls what would be Rove's third appearance before the grand jury "highly unusual."

Who knows where all this is going. But things could start getting "veddy veddy interestink" in Washington real soon ...

Good reporting as I love to keep track of this stuff. You provide a great service Jeremy. Thanks once again. I also enjoyed your 90-9 posting below. I too support McCain's Bill and was wondering whether they had any spine at all in the Senate. Obviously they still do.

I'm back from my tragedy and will put more out too.
