Rove Unfazed

You have to love this piece which is more like a human interest story than actual news. The only reason given for the timing of this article was Rove's fith appearance before the grand jury, which was on April 27th, and the grand jury's upcoming Wednesday meeting.

Today is Monday.

From the article....

Rove's fifth appearance before a grand jury rekindled speculation that he, too, could be indicted. Fitzgerald has advised Rove that he is not a target of the investigation, according to Rove's lawyer, Robert D. Luskin.

As the grand jury prepares to meet again on Wednesday, the waiting game for Rove continues.


Translation: there is no reason for us to be running this story right now other than for positioning, and because of the Leopold piece which will not be mentioned here.

Apparently Leopold is sticking by his story, and the indictment should come down Wednesday.

  • Jason has not been wrong yet. TalkLeft.com has a good article up about what might of been said and how it would of been dealt with. The woman that runs that site is an accomplished attorney,who has represented major figures in front of federal courts. I think her take on the "meeting" sheds more light on Leopolds article.

  • Rove got what he wanted yesterday. I counted no less than five articles on Rove's speech yesterday, plus CNN covered it live. If the message was, I am alive and still spinning, then message received.

    Nonetheless, reading over the speech and reading various analyses of it, you can see how desperate Rove has become in just one year. Last June he gave that infamous, Liberals luv terorrists speech. This May he gave speech saying the preznit's tax policies actually help working class people and real wages are actually up over the last five years.

    I guess Rove's polling told him that the midterm elections are not going to be soley on national security.

  • Rove got what he wanted,

    Let's see if we get what we want Tomorrow. All of this posturing before the indictment is only going to hurt him, unless they plan to spin something against Fitz himself (i.e. he made promises and then indicted anyway, thus he is partisan and unfair).

    I really can't see what he hopes to accomplish. Trying to look like a guy who cares about people before he goes down. Looking for sympathy?

    I'm lost.

    Dusty,

    I read everything Talkleft had to say last night. Still discrepancies abound. We will just have to wait..........

  • I'm lost too, praguetwin. Even discounting Jason Leopold's, all signs still point to indictment for Rove. Yet he's making like all is well w/ his world. Perhaps it is a play for sympathy. Maybe it is some kind of underahnded Rovian ratfucking. Or maybe he's just trying to keep a handle on things by making believe it's not happening.

  • I like it.

    Denial. Good explaination. That would make sense.

    In any case the suspense is killing me. I was relaxed last week because I figured it would be this week anyway. Now I am on the edge of my seat.

  • I think if the story proves false it's a dirty trick. If it does prove out to be false, I'll elaborate.

    I have a short version in the comments of this post.
