Kristol: Rove and Libby Will Be Indicted

Posted by Frankie at 10/17/2005 01:21:00 AM

Could we be this lucky? Or actually it's unlucky really when you think about it. High ranking government official(s) committing acts of treason in a time of war in which they tout about every day. Yet the Republican slime machine had already started to "normalize treason" as John at AmericaBlog just nails it. From Think Progress:

Bill Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard, commenting on Fox News Sunday about the leak scandal:
KRISTOL: But talking to people pretty close to both Libby and Rove outside of government, who therefore can talk about it, I think they expect the worse now. I think they –

WALLACE: That both Libby and Rove will be indicted.

KRISTOL: I believe, if I had to predict – and I don’t know more this than anybody else reading the papers – that both Libby and Rove will be indicted, not for what the original referral was about but for some combination of disclosing classified information or perhaps failing to be fully candid with federal investigators or with the grand jury.
To review: Kristol talks to people close to Libby and Rove, then claims he knows nothing more than anybody else. He goes on to predict the two of them will be indicted “not for what the original referral was.” But Kristol then says Rove and Libby will be indicted for, among other crimes, “disclosing classified information” – which is exactly what the CIA referral was about.

The right-wing is already spinning themselves into knots as they struggle to defend the conduct of the White House.

But we can comfortably be assured as Time reports that Rove and or Libby will resign if they are indicted...

I just wish they would hurry and indict them and Cheney too. I don't know what Bush will do without Rove and Cheney to tell him what to do, but it would be interesting to find out.
