"Despite dragging him back and forth to the Grand Jury, Fitzgerald was obviously getting nowhere with Rove. Did Fitzgerald’s people fear that Rove wasn’t taking their threats seriously enough? By planting the story with the only source gullible enough to run with it, and by passing the same information to Wilson to create the appearance of dual sourcing, Fitzgerald’s office made it seem that there was credible evidence that an indictment was imminent. The idea would be to use this to force Rove to give up somebody else. The story got mangled in the telling, and Rove never worried about it anyway, as he knew Fitzgerald could never convict him, and he knew he had Bush’s pardon in his back pocket should the worst come to worst. Nevertheless, the idea that this was a trick from Fitzgerald’s office makes sense, and that sourcing would explain why Truthout still cannot believe it has been had.interesting speculation. i don't particularly buy it - but, hey, I'm at a loss to even have a theory at this point.
Fitzgerald took the pressure off himself early on by nailing Libby, but he has wasted so much time and energy with Rove that the optics of his position will mean he will need another indictment before he gives up. My guess is one of the usual names: Hadley, Hannah, Fleitz or Bolton. Bolton might be a good guess, as his insanity appears to be spinning out of control (is he off his meds?), and the old-school Republicans, for whom Fitzgerald works, would like to find an excuse to get him out of a position where he can further destroy the reputation of the United States."
Let's hope xymphora is correct about Bolton. I wonder if that would scupper his re-recess appointment? probably not.
