Going Down

Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation of the Valerie Plame case is drawing near its end, and the result likely will go to the very top:

...a new theory about Fitzgerald's aim has emerged in recent weeks from two lawyers who have had extensive conversations with the prosecutor while representing witnesses in the case. They surmise that Fitzgerald is considering whether he can bring charges of a criminal conspiracy perpetrated by a group of senior Bush administration officials. Under this legal tactic, Fitzgerald would attempt to establish that at least two or more officials agreed to take affirmative steps to discredit and retaliate against Wilson and leak sensitive government information about his wife. To prove a criminal conspiracy, the actions need not have been criminal, but conspirators must have had a criminal purpose.

Lawyers involved in the case interviewed for this report agreed to talk only if their names were not used, citing Fitzgerald's request for secrecy.

It's going to be interesting. What's just as interesting, in kind of a horrible way, is watching righty bloggers and lunatics like the Freepers trying to bat the truth away like a pesky mosquito. These cretins who thought a presidential blowjob was the end of the world can't face the fact that nearly 2000 American soldiers and untold numbers of Iraqis have died for a bloody-minded lie.
