It looks like there is no such thing as Fitzmas:
The prosecutor in the C.I.A. leak case on Monday advised Karl Rove, the senior White House adviser, that he would not be charged with any wrongdoing, effectively ending the nearly three-year criminal investigation that had at times focused intensely on Mr. Rove.
The decision by the prosecutor, Patrick J. Fitzgerald, announced in a letter to Mr. Rove’s lawyer, Robert D. Luskin, lifted a pall that had hung over Mr. Rove who testified on five occasions to a federal grand jury about his involvement in the disclosure of an intelligence officer’s identity.
In a statement, Mr. Luskin said, “On June 12, 2006, Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald formally advised us that he does not anticipate seeking charges against Karl Rove.”
I am sure we will spend the next two weeks debating that Rove is guilty- Fitzgerald just can’t prove it, butthat seems to me to be a pointless endeavor. As much as I despise Rove, if three years of intense investigation isn’t enough time to find evidence of wrongdoing, it is over.
