Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald spent more than half a day Friday at the offices of Patton Boggs, the law firm representing Karl Rove.
During the course of that meeting, Fitzgerald served attorneys for former Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove with an indictment charging the embattled White House official with perjury and lying to investigators related to his role in the CIA leak case, and instructed one of the attorneys to tell Rove that he has 24 hours to get his affairs in order, high level sources with direct knowledge of the meeting said Saturday morning.
If this is true, it is huge news. I haven’t found anything in the mainstream media news sources yet. I’m not sure if this FatCats site is reputable or not; we’ll have to wait for confirmation. Here it is from the source, t r u t h o u t. Didn’t expect this to come on a Saturday night…
Looks like they’re not sure what Rove will be charged with, however:
It was still unknown Saturday whether Fitzgerald charged Rove with a more serious obstruction of justice charge. Sources close to the case said Friday that it appeared very likely that an obstruction charge against Rove would be included with charges of perjury and lying to investigators.
Throw the book at him.
