Plame Indictments Imminent...

Image hosted by

Rumours suggest 22 Indictments are about to be handed down in the Valerie Plame investigation.

Here is my post on the case from July 11th: The ten steps that have implicated Karl Rove.

I've also read online that Ari Fleischer will be indicted for perjury.

Radar Online: Indictments Imminent.
Reuters: US officials brace for decisions in CIA leak case.
The Raw Story: Rove has been missing from White House events.

From my 07/11 post: "What we do know now is precisely what was responsible for the Whitehouse leak of Valerie Plame's undercover CIA Identity: A concerted, co-ordinated smear campaign against Joseph Wilson, of which Rove was at least involved.

I'm not caught up on any of this due to school.
Can't wait to see what transpires.
I know I just had to post something even though I had nothing to say but anthropological implications of capitalism, my paper and pixels nor my African Art or Beauty Matters papers are doing it for me.

Hey Alice,

I'm not sure how imminent this is, days/weeks, etc, but it is definately coming. How serious this is will depend upon how effective Republican's are at assasinating Fitzgerald, and Wilson. Broadsweeping indictments will be huge though, especially if Karl Rove is involved.

Just the involvement of Rove will require him to stand down from his post. It's hard to imagine the WH for three years with the Dark Prince, lol.

I have to say anthropological capitalism and african art sounds pretty cool stuff to study. As a drop out I'm super jealous :P.

I sure hope this is imminent. I've seen this same "rumor" other places too. These megalomaniacs need to be in jail where all the would-be dictators go, getting "abused" by their fellow prisoners.

Graham said...

Reuters is speculating it's on its way too Tom. I'm pretty sure it's coming soon.

I really want to see how this turns out... too bad everyone else has resorted to speculation.

Graham said...

I don't think we'll really know anything until it happens. Up to then, I can understand, it's a little difficult for people not to speculate. If multiple indictments are handed down against WH political staff this will be huge.

Can't wait to see how this plays out. The GOP is self-destructing right before our eyes... finally.

Graham said...

Hey Panthergirl. It's a matter of when not if now so far as the indictments are concerned.

Leo said...

I sure hope you're right! It would be huge and well deserved. I could never get lucky enough to see Karl Rove in jailhouse orange--that would make my year.

Graham said...

lol, Leo. I don't know about jailhouse orange, but I wouldn't rule out an indictment at this stage. He's returning to the grand jury to obviously plead his case, so he's definately a target.
