Cheney’s top aide to be indicted: reports

The grand jury probing the controversial outing of a CIA agent married to a critic of the administration’s prewar intelligence is set to expire and, according to sources, Cheney’s chief of staff, Lewis Libby will be indicted for false statement today.

However, Rove is expected to be spared. Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald signalled Thursday he could simply keep Rove under investigation, reported the Associated Press, citing a source familiar with recent developments in the case. Fitzgerald will hold a news conference at 2:00 p.m. ET…

The U.S. Attorney in Chicago, Patrick Fitzgerald, was appointed as a special prosecutor to determine whether anyone in the president’s office violated the federal law that prohibits the intentional unmasking of an undercover CIA officer Valerie Plame.

Plame’s identity was published by broadcaster and syndicated columnist Robert Novak in July, 2003.

Well, I think Joes Wilson should be indicted for outing his wife :frowning:
