There is not - either NBC is ducking the AP (maybe Tim is saving this breaking news for his own show!)

Maybe Russert is having a Rather moment:

"If it turns out I'm the leaker, I'd like to break that story."

Keith

NYTimes: "Mr. Rove and Mr. Libby have been advised that they may be in serious legal jeopardy, the lawyers said, but only this week has Mr. Fitzgerald begun to narrow the possible charges."

Could that mean a target letter? Or, rather, who is doing the advising? Fitzgerald? Or just mysterious advisors?

clarice

Heh


The NYT has another surprise package, anonymously sources suggesting that Rove and Libby are in trouble, that the prosecutor will be acting next week (hey, Cassandra!) and that he's focusing on obstruction, etc., not the Agee Act or Chapter 37 of the Espionage Act. Act.http://nytimes.com/2005/10/21/politics/21leak.html? ei=5094&en=0304bde7ed94ce48&hp=&ex=1129867200&adxnnl=1&partner=homepage&adxnnlx=1129861062-+EVGLS4NFPvxVqOx/K84Kg

More baloney from Wilson's pals.
I doubt that either Rove nor Libby nor Fiz have the NYT on speed dial and this is just more supposition based on gossip from inteested parties.

TM:

You have, by far, the best coverage of this entire process from top to bottom. And by the best, I mean the best ANYWHERE. You have run circles around the traditional media, and you have put all other bloggers to shame. Your encyclopedia knowledge off all the little details consistently amazes. You're fair even when doing so leads you to draw conclusions that you'd rather not draw. You take advice, listen to others, and pull the big picture together.

In other words, you're everything the MSM isn't. Thanks for all your work.

Clarice, Libby sure used to have at least Judy of NYT on his speed dial...and she does still work there.

what Keith said

Will Franklin

Hmm...

Sue

You think the same leaker in Fitzgerald's office who leaked to Judith Miller about the Islamic charity in Richardson Texas leaked again? :)

clarice

I love Tom and this site. It's engaging and informative as nothing else is.

Syl

"In other words, you're everything the MSM isn't. Thanks for all your work."

I concur!

Thank you, Tom!

Creepy Dude

The creeps at Powerlies are now expecting indictments.

This is great; even if Fitzgerald doesn't indict anyone, Powerlies will continue to insist they have been indicted.

Syl

"Mr. Rove and Mr. Libby have been advised that they may be in serious legal jeopardy"

I'm sure many advised them of that two years ago.

Syl

Including the democrats.

PaulS

That AP article is indeed a perfect example of the media's awful reporting on this story.

Quote: "It's going to be as difficult for the defense to prove the theory that the White House got the information from reporters as it is..."

So the White House is just assumed, before a trial, before charges are even issued, to be the "defense" here?

clarice

Translation of NYT article: We have no evidence that Rove or Libby have received target letters but some of Wilson's pals, noting the gj is about to expire are suggesting they might be charged with something because it is obvious neither Agee nor Chapter 37 of the Espionage Act are applicable.

Creepy Dude,

If you are speaking of Powerlineblog.com
All they have posted is:

Plame indictments

If what I'm hearing is reliable, expect some soon.

Plame indictments post at Powerlineblog

Shoot, nothing for anyone to wet their pants over.

Keith

Where are these people hearing these rumors from? Fitz hasn't leaked yet. Why start now?

Cheez-Wiz

Fitz reports to the DOJ doesn't he? Could leaks be coming from above his level?

clarice

I doubt it. The article indicates the sources are lawyers for some of the parties. And those parties aren't Rove or Libby because their lawyers have said nothing.


Perhaps I missed it, but weren't 22 indictments due Wednesday?

Sue

Okay, tinfoil hat time. Say I'm a prosecutor and someone in my office is leaking information to a certain reporter, one that has already cost me a case against a terrorist organization, and what if I really, really wanted to find out who that leaker was but a judge wouldn't cooperate and force anyone to show me phone records. Say I plant a couple of false stories to the suspects in my office. Which newspaper runs which story? I know my leaker. :) Okay, tinfoil hat off. Until the actual indictments are announced, I can dream, can't I? :)

Syl

"Perhaps I missed it, but weren't 22 indictments due Wednesday?"

Fitz decided to add some more and put them all out at once.

Everyone who has testified or given a deposition is now on the list of indictees.

They all will be indicted for conspiracy to commit gossip.

ordi

Clarice,

They were due LAST Wednesday. So much for that rumor mill! LOL

CaseyL

Nothing is "due" until Fitzgerald says it is. His only deadline is Oct 28, when the GJ session ends.

He's a careful guy. Over at Jane's and Swopa's place, they've got extra-lovely stories about how Fitzgerald nailed Miller and Libby on their June convos by presenting Miller with OEO sign-in logs and phone records.

TM

Thanks for the plaudits, all. But don't overlook the importance of a good comments section and some crystal meth.

Irish, you confuse me - is it "Powerlies", or "PowerTools"? I can't keep up.

I'll say this - *IF* there are to be indictments tomorrow, there will be rumors tonight, since Fitzgerald will have promised to alert key people who don't want to be caught at the golf course or in weekend getaway traffic.

clarice

If you all pitch in, I'll slip out of my jammies and head over to the latest all night boite near the WH (Ebbitt Grill ) and live blog away the night.LOL

...or on their way to the airport to lam it out of the country?

"or on their way to the airport to lam it out of the country?"

Wilson does have that place in Paris.

I know. I know.

Live blogging in the nude - in a bar?
I thought this was a family place...
