October JUST around the corner...will Rove be indicted before Halloween?
Edited on Wed Sep-28-05 01:33 PM by jackstraw45
The Plamegate Grand Jury reportedly expires on October 28....unless it is re-upped for another 6 months, we should see indictments within 30 days, if they decide to go forward.

I bet there is unimaginable political pressure on Fitzgerald and his family and friends by the BFEE right now.

Place your bets, folks, place your bets....

1. Is this how a grand jury usually works?
Low ranking indictments followed by the big whammy indictment the last day of the grand jury's term? Is it unusual to wait until the very last minute?

"The indictment against the second-ranking, and most assertive Republican leader came on the final day of the grand jury's term. It followed earlier indictments of a state political action committee founded by DeLay and three of his political associates."

Is this how Fitzgerald will do it? If so, it will be a very Happy Halloween indeed!

3. I suspect he is holding his cards,....
,...delaying announcement/release of indictments due to the expansion of an original investigation, which includes many more folks.

Just a guess.

4. The pressure to do find a scapegoat must be tremendous...
The BFEE won't go down easy.
