WILDLY SPECULATIVE RUMOR WATCH….I have no idea if this is true, but here’s what Jason Leopold says today:
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.
….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.”
Sure, and that’s certainly the responsible thing to do. But what the hell. It’s Friday evening, and that’s a good time for some blog porn. Consider this your wildly speculative rumor kickstart for the weekend.
