Obstruction

Murray Waas has the scoop:

White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove did not disclose that he had ever discussed CIA officer Valerie Plame with Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper during Rove’s first interview with the FBI, according to legal sources with firsthand knowledge of the matter.

The omission by Rove created doubt for federal investigators, almost from the inception of their criminal probe into who leaked Plame's name to columnist Robert Novak, as to whether Rove was withholding crucial information from them, and perhaps even misleading or lying to them, the sources said.

No wonder Team Bush moved up the SC nomination. Gotta get it done before the indictments start rollin' in.

Rove's in big trouble.

Cap,

I've said this elsewhere, but I find comfort in the fact that Fitzgerald's investigation goes on regardless of the news cycle.

Me, too! Fitz isn't a one trick pony. He's on to something, something big, and isn't distracted by outside events.

I'd hate to be on the guy's bad side, that's for sure!

Capitola,
Before you get all romantic, remember, Fitzgerald is going after one of the most powerful and ruthless people in the country. I bet any money, Fitz is scared to death, literally. I mean he outed a CIA ops person, what is worse. A beat down, threatening family, or maybe Fitz just disappears. I wouldn't be surprises by much if and when he really gets backed into a corner.

And please, please, please, stop with the Rove is going down business. There are plenty of tricks up his sleeve. We (liberals) always think we finally got them and, wham, they slide through our hands.

the investigation continues regardless of the news cycle, but the less news coverage the more pressure can be applied. If this thing falls to page 7, then they can start manipulating people, so screw the court nomination, keep focus on Turd Blossom. We will look at the nominee after the hearings.

I know, I know. You're right, ScottW. I've compared myself to the beaten wife/girlfriend syndrome several times when it comes to team Bush. 2000. 2004. Every scandal. Just when I think we've got em, they slither away only to come back and hurt me again, WORSE than the last beating.

Still... i can't help but get excited that maybe, MAYBE, this time Team Bush will get their just deserves, at the hands of their very own architect.

I'm an addict!

I have been beat down just as bad, the election was the beating when I decided "no more".
The bloggers and polls had me thinking Kerry was shoe in, and man, did it hurt.
I work at republican central and all the gloating idiots just about had me testing out Newton's "theories" from the roof to save my sanity.

But I am totally with you, this is so much fun. We knew what they were about and now the whole country is finding out.
The curtain is opening.
I was so worried that the court nomination would distract, but then I saw your scotty post; you just can't make stuff like that up.

I remember watching the election results roll in. I was in my Nob Hill Condo in SF, had friends over to party and celebrate what was SURE to be a Kerry/Edwards victory, and every hour that ticked, every state that fell to Bush, was a stab in my chest.

When I went to bed, I felt sick.

When I awoke the next morning, turned on the tv to see Kerry delivering his concession speech, I started to cry. I cried for three days!

Now, I'm mad. I want political revenge. I want to see George W. Bush's Presidency go down in flames. I want history to call him the Worst President Ever. I want Rove, Libby, Cheney, all of them, every single one of the bastards, shackled and getting pissed on at Gitmo.

Yes, that'd make up for election night ;-)
