Karl Rove Won't Be Charged in CIA Leak Case

Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald has told White House aide Karl Rove that he does not expect to seek charges against him in connnection with the CIA leak case, Rove's lawyer said today.

In a statement this morning, Robert Luskin, Rove's attorney, said that Fitzgerald "has formally advised us that he does not anticipate seeking charges" against Rove.

"In deference to the pending case, we will not make any further public statements about the subject matter of the investigation," Luskin said in the statement. "We believe that the Special Counsel's decision should put an end to the baseless speculation about Mr. Rove's conduct."

In a brief phone interview, Luskin said that Rove was "delighted, obviously. . . . We've always said he [Rove] did everything he could to cooperate" with the investigation being conducted by Fitzgerald. "At the end of the day, he made a determination on the evidence."
