Hmmmm, if charges are brought, I would say that it would most likely be against Libby and Rove than Cheney. An interesting tidbit from the article is that the prosecutor wants to leave behind the serious charge that administration members purposely leaked Plame's name. Instead, he wants to go for the easier charges of perjury against Rove and others, as well as having violated the Espionage Act. Time will tell whether or not the Washington Post has some good sources close to the investigation. Anyone think he's going to bring people up on the lighter charges?
The grand jury investigating the CIA leak case pressed White House senior adviser Karl Rove yesterday to more fully explain his conversations with reporters about CIA operative Valerie Plame, including discrepancies between his testimony and the account provided by a key witness in the investigation, according to a source familiar with Rove's account.
Making his fourth appearance before the grand jury, Rove answered a broad range of questions for 4 1/2 hours, including why he did not initially tell federal agents about a July 2003 conversation about Plame with the witness, Time magazine's Matthew Cooper, the source said.
