UNDER FIRE: LEWIS LIBBY INDICTED

In the last twenty-four hours, a whirlwind of the political upsets has swept the nation's capital city and left the Bush White House scremabling to pick up the pieces. Just yesterday afternoon, beleagured Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers withdrew her nomination. Minutes ago, meanwhile, former Vice Presidential Chief of Staff Lewis Libby was indicted by a grand jury on charges of purjury, obstruction of justice, and making false statements in the CIA leak case. Today is not a good day for the Bush Administration or the Republican Party. Karl Rove, White House Deputy Chief of Staff, has escaped indictment for now but remains under criminal invcestigation by Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. ConservativeDemocratNews will have more cfommentary in the coming days as these historic events unfold in Washington, D.C.

The Law being what it is, (far too open to interpretation compared to scientifically derived laws) I still don't know as Rowe will face in indictment of his own.

And why is Bob Novak still not being held legally responsible for releasing Plame's name?!?!

No one has yet explained that aberration satisfactorily.

Ooops, I meant Rove of course.

Rowe might actually face "indictment" before Karl does ...)
