ROVE, FITZ, AND THE LEFT’S LATEST GREAT HOPE

There has been much speculation in the pro-indictment community that Karl Rove made some sort of deal with CIA leak prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald in which Rove promised to cooperate in return for not being indicted.  (The hope is that somehow Rove agreed to help nail Vice President Dick Cheney.)  I just talked to defense spokesman Mark Corallo, who told me, “There are no conditions to this action by the special prosecutor.  There has never been any talk of conditions, of cooperation, of anything that could even be construed as conditions.  This just simply reflects the fact that the special prosecutor found Mr. Rove to be a truthful and credible witness from the beginning.”
