Upon Another Shoe Finally Dropping

Hah hah! Like a good murder mystery finally drawing to a close (when we all know who did it), it looks like the Plame case is finally going to come full circle.

From the McLaughlin Group:

"What we're going to go to now in the next stage, when Matt Cooper's emails-within Time Magazine, uh, are handed over to the grand jury is the ultimate revelation, probably within the week of who his source is. And I know I'm going to get pulled into the grand jury for saying this but the source of-for Matt Cooper was Karl Rove, and that will be revealed in this document dump that Time Magazine's going to do with the grand jury."

So what does this mean? What does it mean when the man who is closest to the President leaks confidential information in a mean-spiritied, childish attempt to threaten a political rival, then gets caught with his pants down?

It’s treason, if you ask me. In a sane world, Rove would be fired and jailed, but I don’t know if this will be the case, knowing how corrupt we’ve become. Rove would presumably be indicted for leaking classified information and for perjuring himself to a grand jury. As an extremely high-ranking member of the Bush administration, it'd embroil the White House in a scandal of major proportions (again, if people were paying attention and not busy trying to keep up with the Joneses). Whether he acted of his own volition or from the President would become a major issue, and it'd take a miracle for Bush to be able to keep himself out of the fray. Barring a miracle of damage control probably beyond even this White House's capabilities, it'd become a major and extremely visible issue just before the midterms.

Now comes the key part. Is anyone paying attention? The American public seems to be asleep at the wheel. Nothing will come out of this even if Rove is cornered. I'm completely disillusioned with the justice system under this Administration.
But come on, America. Prove me wrong. Let’s get this guy.
