Rove Still in the Woods? Congress in Deep Doo-Doo? David Corn

Rove Still in the Woods? Congress in Deep Doo-Doo?/Hiding Behind the Troops

For anyone still hoping for an indictment of Karl Rove, I have a smidgen of hope to offer. A well-wired lawyer in Washington tells me that not too long ago he bumped into Robert Luskin, Rove's attorney and a friend of this lawyer. My source said to Luskin, "Looks like you're out of the woods." Luskin replied, "Not so fast. It's not over yet." So....

This lawyer had a few other interesting tidbits. Like most DC attorneys, he keeps in touch with what's happening in his circle. And he has a sense that the Abramoff scandal is spreading faster than an aggressive cancer. Well, I noted, media reports note that there are 25 full-time and 25 part-time FBI agents working the case. No, there's more, he said. One FBI agent told him that the workload is overwhelming. And my source saw one of the leading lawyers in town--a fellow who specializes in representing public officials and who has quite familiar with the rules and laws governing Congress--and this man smiled at my source and said, "Business is great. You wouldn't believe how many people have come in." My attorney-pal is guessing that five or so House members and one senator will end up indicted in the Abramoff mess, which may extend (as I've explained previously) far beyond the misdeeds of Abramoff and his corrupt circle.
