Well, it appears that Mr. Karl Rove and his lawyers have squirmed their way out of another court case. Karl was facing possible charges in the CIA leak case, but money and power can get you out of all kind of trouble. Don't misunderstand me here, I've not leaped the political fence into Democrat land. I'm still straddling the fence as best as I can. Lets face it, the Republicans need Mr. Rove to plan the campaign for the November elections. Without him, they are sunk, and they may be sinking anyway, so who knows what will happen. I predict the Democrats taking over the majority by a slim one or two positions in November. What's you say? Feel free to opine..

As Bush's top political adviser, Rove is out from under the cloud of possible perjury charges and is now free to concentrate on helping Republicans keep control of Congress in what looks like a hard fought campaign.

"On June 12, 2006, special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald formally advised us that he does not anticipate seeking charges against Karl Rove," Rove's lawyer, Robert Luskin, said in a statement.

Fitzgerald has already secured an indictment from a federal grand jury against another senior White House aide, Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby.

In October, Libby was charged with obstruction of justice and lying to FBI agents and a grand jury during the investigation. He has pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to go to trial in January.

That prompted speculation that Rove, too, could face charges since he had also spoken to reporters in the case.

"We believe the special counsel's decision should put an end to the baseless speculation about Mr. Rove's conduct," Luskin said.
