No Frogmarch for Rove

NO FROGMARCH FOR ROVE….Is this the final word on Karl Rove’s involvement in the Valerie Plame case?

White House senior adviser Karl Rove has been told by Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald that he will not be charged in the CIA leak case, according to Robert Luskin, Rove’s lawyer.

“In deference to the pending case, we will not make any further public statements about the subject matter of the investigation,” Luskin said in a written statement Tuesday. “We believe that the special counsel’s decision should put an end to the baseless speculation about Mr. Rove’s conduct.”

Of course, it’s still possible that Rove is cooperating with Fitzgerald in some other aspect of the case, but that’s baseless speculation too. Wait and see.
