Scooter Indicted On 5 Counts
It seems that I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby has been indicted. The indictments include 2 counts for making false statements, 2 counts for perjury, and 1 count for obstuction of justice.
While this is a blow for the White House and more specifically for the V.P.'s office, it may not be as big a blow for the overall administration as this investigation could have yielded. While the Special Prosecutor appears to be prepared to continue the investigation and possibly seat a new grand jury, nothing has been announced. (There is a news conference schedule for 2:00.)
I am really more interested in what else is going to be coming out. While Karl "The Brain" or "Turd-Blossom" Rove has not been indicted as of yet, he may very will be indicted in the future.
In some ways this may take some of the pressure off the White House for a short time, but may cause a continuing level of stress over time as the investigation continues.
