Rove Spared

CNN reports:
White House senior adviser Karl Rove has been told by Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald that he will not be charged in the CIA leak case, according to Robert Luskin, Rove's lawyer.
Mild surprise. Anyone who has been following this case knows that Rove was knee deep in this mess. Maybe now that he is no longer under suspicion, he can drop the old "We won't comment on an ongoing investigation'. Oooops, guess not!
"In deference to the pending case, we will not make any further public statements about the subject matter of the investigation," Luskin said in a written statement Tuesday. "We believe that the special counsel's decision should put an end to the baseless speculation about Mr. Rove's conduct."
So Rove is no longer under investigation, but as long as the investigation itself continues, they will keep their lips zipped. But not tight enough to claim full exoneration for what they term as 'baseless speculation'.

Do they really live in their own world? Are they that out of touch?

Rhetorical questions, the both of 'em!
