The Left Gets Scrooged!

So much for the lefties much-anticipated "FitzMas!"

WASHINGTON - Presidential adviser Karl Rove won't be a criminal defendant in the
CIA leak case, but he could still end up being grilled in court as a witness.

Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald could question Rove about whether the Bush administration compromised a CIA officer's identity to retaliate against a political critic.

Still, Rove and the White House could breathe a sigh of relief Tuesday after the prosecutor told Rove's lawyer he wouldn't seek a federal indictment against the political operative.

Rove has been identified as a likely defense witness in next year's trial of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, Vice President
Dick Cheney's former chief of staff. Libby has been charged with lying to the
FBI and a federal grand jury about how he learned about
Valerie Plame's CIA status and what he told reporters about it.

If Libby's defense attorneys summon Rove to testify, Fitzgerald can cross-examine him about a host of issues, including a July 2003 conversation Rove had with syndicated columnist Robert Novak days before Novak published Plame's name.

And yet the left wont stop thinking that he is guilty. To them any charge that is not supported by the facts is just Bush protecting his own.
