    WASHINGTON Jun 13, 2006 (AP)— Top White House aide Karl Rove has been told by prosecutors he won't be charged with any crimes in the investigation into leak of a CIA officer's identity, his lawyer said Tuesday.
    Attorney Robert Luskin said that special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald informed him of the decision on Monday, ending months of speculation about the fate of one of President Bush's closest advisers. Rove testified five times before a grand jury.

    "Insufficient evidence to indict."

    Better than some other Bush appointees.

    I'm not surprised. Politicians, both Republican and Democrat, often find ways to avoid being made accountable for things they have done. I'm not saying that Rove is guilty or innocent, just that as a politician.

    Fair enough, as long as they don't spend too many millions on it.

    It should be a short report. Maybe three words.

    Maybe even they can understand one that short.:smilewinkgrin:

    How Accurate Was the 'Rove Indicted' Story?
    By Marc Ash,
    Mon May 15th, 2006 at 02:04:04 PM EDT :: Bush

    On Saturday afternoon, we ran a breaking story titled, "Karl Rove Indicted on Charges of Perjury, Lying to Investigators." We assumed that we were well ahead of the mainstream media and that we would be subsequently questioned. Right on both counts.
    What everyone is asking right now is how accurate is the story? Has Rove in fact been indicted? The story is accurate, and Karl Rove's attorneys have been served with an indictment.
    In short, we had two sources close to the Fitzgerald investigation who were explicit about the information that we published, and a former high-ranking state department official who reported communication with a source who had "direct knowledge" of the meeting at Patton Boggs. In both instances, substantial detail was provided and matched.
    We had confirmation. We ran the story.
