Bill Kristol Predicts Rove & Libby Will Be Indicted

Reported by Marie Therese - October 17, 2005

Yesterday on FOX News Sunday, FNC regular Bill Kristol, the very conservative editor of the Weekly Standard, made an unofficial prediction that both Karl Rove and Scooter Libby will be indicted, although not on the charges everyone expects.

Kristol told host Chris Wallace: "I believe, if I had to predict - and I don't know more about this than anybody else reading the papers - that both Libby and Rove will be indicted, not for what the original referral was about but for some combination of disclosing classified information or perhaps failing to be fully candid with federal investigators or with the grand jury."

During the same show, Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice dropped a bombshell when she told Wallace that she, too, has "cooperated" with Federal Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald.

RICE: "I am not going to talk about, Chris - as you might imagine - an ongoing investigation. I have, like everybody else, cooperated with prosecutor Fitzgerald and am quite certain that he will make his report. But I don't think that it's appropriate to comment about those events."

WALLACE: "Now when you say you have cooperated with the prosecutor, does that mean, in fact, that you spoke to investigators or to the grand jury?"

RICE: "I cooperated in all the ways that I was asked to cooperate."

While she would not go into detail, the mere fact that she has "cooperated" indicates that prosecutor Fitzgerald's net has been thrown wider that heretofore suspected.

Crooks and Liars has both video clips.

Let's face it. At the rate the Republicans are imploding, the Democrats don't have to do anything but sit back and watch the meltdown!
