Grand Jury Loves Rove, Brings Him Back for Fourth Appearance

Federal grand jury investigation into the Valerie Plame leak case continued apace yesterday as Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald asked Bush's Best Brain Karl Rove back for a fourth appearance. Question, though. If Rove's lawyer Luskin is right and Rove is not a target of the investigation, then why'd they ask him back for Friday's encore? Turns out Rove was a bad boy and kinda forgot to tell the grand jury a little sumpin':
"Newsweek reports investigators have found an e-mail confirming a meeting between Cooper and Rove, President Bush's top political adviser.

Rove failed to disclose the meeting both during a 2003 FBI interview and during his first appearance before a federal grand jury investigating the leak to the press of the identity of CIA agent Valerie Plame."
Careful there, Turd Blossom. That sort of "accidental omission" treads awfully close to contempt. Something you and your big Washington friends are all too familiar with, I wager.

Must be contagious, because I'm feeling a little contempt myself. Whadya know...
