And rumors on the Plame front.
The D.C. rumor mill is thrumming with whispers that 22 indictments are about to be handed down on the outed-CIA agent Valerie Plame case. The last time the wires buzzed this loud — that Tom DeLay would be indicted and would step down from his leadership post in the House — the scuttlebutters got it right.
Can it be a coincidence that the White House appears to be distancing President Bush from embattled aide Karl Rove? “He’s been missing in action at more than one major presidential event,” a member of the White House press corps tells us.
I know nothing about this source, but it's just so mind numbing I feel obliged to gossip it on.
Of course, it could just be another case of the Bush setting the bar low so they can claim that there were "only six indictments" so they can frame it as a success.
UPDATE: Interesting inclusion in this morning's Reuters piece on "the investigation."
