*Getting Closer to the Answer to the 64 Million Dollar Question

In the Fitzgerald investigation Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter' Libby Jr., was charged today with obstruction of justice, perjury and making false statements in the CIA leak investigation. Mr. Libby has tendered his resignation and left the White House.

The grand jury indictment charged Libby, 55, with one count of obstruction of justice, two of perjury and two false statement counts. If convicted on all five, he could face as much as 30 years in prison and $1.25 million in fines

Karl Rove, President Bush's closest adviser, escaped indictment Friday but remained under investigation. Like the prosecutor in the vintage detective films or television law and order programs, Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald seems to be saying to Rove "you're not out of the woods yet". Rove's legal status is a continuing political problem for the White House, because the investigation contiues to shed light on the president's and vice president's push to war in Iraq.
