O'Donnell: Why rover might be indicted
snip:
Judge Tatels opinion has eight blank pages in the middle of it where he discusses the secret information the prosecutor has supplied only to the judges to convince them that the testimony he is demanding is worth sending reporters to jail to get. The gravity of the suspected crime is presumably very well developed in those redacted pages. Later, Tatel refers to aving carefully scrutinized voluminous classified filings.

snip:
Tatel wrote a 41-page opinion in which he seemed eager to make new law -- a federal reporters shield law -- but in the end, he couldnt bring himself to do it in this particular case. In his final paragraph, he says he might have let Cooper and Miller off the hook ere the leak at issue in this case less harmful to national security.

snip:
Tatels colleagues are at least as impressed with the prosecutors secret filings as he is. One simply said Special Counsels showing decides the case.

All the judges who have seen the prosecutors secret evidence firmly believe he is pursuing a very serious crime, and they have done everything they can to help him get an indictment.

1. "All the judges who have seen the prosecutors secret...
...evidence firmly believe he is pursuing a very serious crime, and they have done everything they can to help him get an indictment."

If true, this is VERY telling.
