Law and Odor
This story by Jason Leopold is all over the internet. Leopold has been reliable up to now.
"Within the last week, Karl Rove told President Bush and Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten, as well as a few other high level administration officials, that he will be indicted in the CIA leak case and will immediately resign his White House job when the special counsel publicly announces the charges against him, according to sources.
Details of Rove's discussions with the president and Bolten have spread through the corridors of the White House where low-level staffers and senior officials were trying to determine how the indictment would impact an administration that has been mired in a number of high-profile political scandals for nearly a year, said a half-dozen White House aides and two senior officials who work at the Republican National Committee.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, sources confirmed Rove's indictment is imminent. These individuals requested anonymity saying they were not authorized to speak publicly about Rove's situation. A spokesman in the White House press office said they would not comment on "wildly speculative rumors." . . .
"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. An announcement by Fitzgerald is expected to come this week, sources close to the case said."

Speaking of Crooks and Liars, here is a new poll on how American really feel about having their phone records amassed into a huge data base controlled by the people who have brought you the War, the Katrina reponse, the largest build up of debt under any administration, the censorship of science on Climate Change, the torture, the suspension of habeus corpus, and the enmity of much of the planet.
These people are for the Corporation, of the Corporation, and by the Corporation. (watch the documentary if you haven't seen it)
And there is a name for who they are,
and for the demagoguery they practice.
