White House

Indictments this week

Anyone else planning a "Down Goes Karl" party? Reuters:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Vice President Dick Cheney's top aide could face obstruction charges over whether he tried to shape a New York Times reporter's testimony about the outing of a covert CIA operative, people close to the case said on Sunday.

Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald was likely to decide within days whether to bring charges over the leak of CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity, with announcements possible later this week. Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis Libby, and President George W. Bush's top political adviser, Karl Rove, were among the possible targets, legal sources said.

The key here is as follows... If the indictments are handed down, we really need to step up and hammer away on this and the other transgressions of the administration. Democrats have a way of becoming complacent. Let's not this time.
