PlameGate – Jumping To Conclusions

Way over there on the far left they’re reporting a novel scoop on Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald’s investigation into the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame that you’re not going to believe… Indictiments for violating Joseph Wilson’s civil rights

Although most press accounts emphasized that Fitzgerald was likely to concentrate on attempts by Libby Rove and others to cover-up wrongdoing by means of perjury before the grand jury, lying to federal officials, conspiring to obstruct justice, etc. But federal law enforcement officials told this reporter that Fitzgerald was likely to charge the people indicted with violating Joe Wilson’s civil rights, smearing his name in an attempt to destroy his ability to earn a living in Washington as a consultant.

The civil rights charge is said to include “the conspiracy was committed using U.S. government offices, buildings, personnel and funds,” one federal law enforcement official said.I kid you not…

Update: Tom Maguire and Jeralyn Merritt, covering the story from differing ends of the political spectrum, look at how Karl Rove could walk. Of course we’ll just have to keep on waiting, since nothing is going to happen today
