From the New York Times piece: “Karl Rove, President Bush’s senior adviser and deputy chief of staff, will not be charged on Friday, but will remain under investigation, people briefed officially about the case said.”
If this is accurate, and I say if, it bothers me a great deal. To continue to hang this investigation over the president’s top aide seems highly inappropriate to me. If they couldn’t find something on Rove by now, then move on. If they couldn’t find or convince witnesses to contradict Rove by now, then move on. It appears they took another run at his assistant the other day, but may have come up empty. This is clearly disruptive to the president. And at some point you would think this would be relevant to investigators.
