Looks like Rove is going down at last

As you have no doubt seen or heard elsewhere by now, Fitzmas has indeed come on Friday as many (especially Booman at the Booman Tribune) have expected.

According to Truthout, it looks like Karl Rove is going down.

Within the last week, Karl Rove told President Bush and Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten, as well as a few other high level administration officials, that he will be indicted in the CIA leak case and will immediately resign his White House job when the special counsel publicly announces the charges against him, according to sources.

Details of Rove's discussions with the president and Bolten have spread through the corridors of the White House where low-level staffers and senior officials were trying to determine how the indictment would impact an administration that has been mired in a number of high-profile political scandals for nearly a year, said a half-dozen White House aides and two senior officials who work at the Republican National Committee.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, sources confirmed Rove's indictment is imminent. These individuals requested anonymity saying they were not authorized to speak publicly about Rove's situation. A spokesman in the White House press office said they would not comment on "wildly speculative rumors."

Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin, did not return a call for comment Friday.

And it gets even worse for Rove:

Sources close to the case said there is a strong chance Rove will also face an additional charge of obstruction of justice, adding that Fitzgerald has been working meticulously over the past few months to build an obstruction case against Rove because it "carries more weight" in a jury trial and is considered a more serious crime.

Couldn't happen to a nicer sociopath.

The Bushies will try to shrug this off and move on--but it'll be tough. This is Bush's brain we're talking about here. This is the mastermind of their electoral and domestic policies.

A White House without Karl Rove will be like a House of Representatives without Tom Delay: lost, dazed and confused.

Score another victory for America today.

if nothing happens, we'll at least know not to trust Jason Leopold, and that's something.
