Karl Rove Scandal: The Big Question Finally Asked

Posted by Tim Tagaris

Big victory for the folks at DailyKos who have asked the question each day for the past two weeks: "What did the President know, and when did he know it?"

Headline from the Washington Post: "What Did the President Know?"

But now Fitzgerald's investigation appears to have turned its focus to discrepancies in the testimony of White House senior adviser Karl Rove and vice presidential chief of staff I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby. Fitzgerald may be trying to determine whether evidence exists to bring perjury or obstruction of justice charges.

And that raises the issue of what -- if anything -- Rove and Libby told Bush and Cheney about their roles.

So does that mean Fitzgerald might call Bush and Cheney to testify before the grand jury -- under oath? Might he even have done so already? We have no idea, of course, because the White House isn't saying anything at all about the investigation anymore.

Can't wait to find out the answer on this one.
