Rove Should Have Listened To His Momma!

WASHINGTON (New York Times), Oct. 20 - As he weighs whether to bring criminal charges in the C.I.A. leak case, Patrick J. Fitzgerald, the special counsel, is focusing on whether Karl Rove, the senior White House adviser, and I. Lewis Libby Jr., chief of staff for Vice President Dick Cheney, sought to conceal their actions and mislead prosecutors, lawyers involved in the case said Thursday.

Among the charges that Mr. Fitzgerald is considering are perjury, obstruction of justice and false statement - counts that suggest the prosecutor may believe the evidence presented in a 22-month grand jury inquiry shows that the two White House aides sought to cover up their actions, the lawyers said.

If this proves true, it means that Rove and/or Libby may be in very serious trouble… but not for leaking a names, violating national security, or committing treason.

They could be guilty of simply lying.

The old adage holds true: If you tell the truth, you never get in as much trouble. Rove’s mama must never have taught him that.
