BTL:Special Prosecutor Seeking to Indict Karl Rove in CIA Leak Case

Special Prosecutor Seeking to Indict Karl Rove in CIA Leak Case

Interview with Jason Leopold, investigative reporter, conducted by Scott Harris

President Bush's senior counselor Karl Rove testified for three-and-a-half hours before a federal grand jury on April 26. The political strategist's appearance was part of the continuing investigation by special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald into who in the White House leaked the name of covert CIA agent Valerie Plame, in an effort to discredit her husband Joseph Wilson, who challenged the president's rationale for the Iraq war.

Just one week before he made his fifth appearance before the grand jury, Rove lost his position as Bush's chief policy coordinator in a White House shakeup. Sources close to the investigation have told reporters that Fitzgerald is now seeking an indictment of Rove for perjury committed in previous grand jury testimony and for lying to FBI investigators. Rove withdrew his original denials that he had no conversations with reporters concerning the identity of Valerie Plame after he learned that Time magazine's Matt Cooper would testify that Rove was a source for his Time story on Plame.

In early April, Fitzgerald filed court documents revealing that indicted former chief of staff to Vice President Lewis Libby testified that Dick Cheney had told him that President Bush personally authorized the release of classified intelligence in July 2003 to refute critics of his administration's justification for war. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with investigative reporter Jason Leopold, who explains why he believes special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is now seeking the indictment of Karl Rove.
