Karl Rove indicted on perjury, lying to investigators

Reported by Chrish - May 13, 2006 -

From Jason Leopold writing for Truthout.org:

"Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald served attorneys for former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove with an indictment charging the embattled White House official with perjury and lying to investigators related to his role in the CIA leak case, and instructed one of the attorneys to tell Rove that he has 24 hours to get his affairs in order, high level sources with direct knowledge of the meeting said Saturday morning."

" It was still unknown Saturday whether Fitzgerald charged Rove with a more serious obstruction of justice charge. Sources close to the case said Friday that it appeared very likely that an obstruction charge against Rove would be included with charges of perjury and lying to investigators.

An announcement by Fitzgerald is expected to come this week, sources close to the case said. However, the day and time is unknown."

I was sent an email alert at 4:11pm EDT. As of 6:51pm EDT FOXNews.com has nothing on the story (unless it's buried somewhere - I only checked for headlines. This is huge.)

I switched on FOX News Channel and there's a (FoX News Watch) panel discussing Patrick Kennedy. "We're always live" ??
