Rove’s lawyer is crowing that Fitzgerald hasn’t decided whether to indict his client:
Rove’s attorney, Robert Luskin […] said he had been assured no decisions on charges had been made. Rove would first have to receive what is known as a target letter if he is about to be indicted.
“I can say categorically that Karl has not received a target letter from the special counsel. The special counsel has confirmed that he has not made any charging decisions in respect to Karl,” Luskin said.
Sources close to Fitzgerald are putting a somewhat more negative spin on things:
Federal prosecutors have accepted an offer from presidential adviser Karl Rove to give 11th hour testimony in the case of a CIA officer’s leaked identity but have warned they cannot guarantee he won’t be indicted, according to people directly familiar with the investigation.
Those double negatives will always get you in the end…
