Looks like they got this info from Time Magazine so it may be nothing new.

Top adviser to Bush may be charged with lying: Report


Nov. 7, 2005

US President George W Bush's top political adviser Karl Rove is likely to be charged with lying by the special prosecutor probing the controversial CIA leak case, a development that could prompt a quick resignation of the key Bush aide, a media report said today. Despite Rove's "flashes of ebullience" in recent days and the insistence of friends that he is out of legal jeopardy, several of the most important lawyers who deal with special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald hint at his possible indictment, the Time magazine reported. The lawyers said they saw "more clues" last week that Fitzgerald, investigating the leak of a CIA operatives identity, is exploring the possibility of charging Rove with "lying to investigators or the grand jury or both." If that happens, the report said, the Deputy White House Chief of Staff would resign almost immediately, as did I. Lewis Libby, Vice President Dick Chaney's chief of staff, when he was indicted two weeks ago.

5. If true, Rove's cut deals
I have no doubt that his "cooperation" brought him a few less charges, but I don't Fitzgerald would drop the perjury and lying to Federal officials. The real question is, what got dropped?...(again, if true)

6. If Dubya accepted Rove's resignation, wouldn't it be with a wink? >
Rovie would just continue from the shadow government's undisclosed location.
