Melanie Sloan, CREW's executive director, said today, "It looks like Karl Rove may well have destroyed evidence that implicated him in the White House's orchestrated efforts to leak Valerie Plame Wilson's covert identity to the press in retaliation against her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson." Sloan continued, "Special Counsel Fitzgerald should immediately reopen his investigation into whether Rove took part in the leak as well as whether he obstructed justice in the ensuing leak investigation."
Now as one of those who was somewhat less then satisfied at the outcome of Fitzgerald's last case, the one that resulted in the conviction of Scooter Libby, I would truly love to see him go after this administration again. As a matter of fact I would not be at all surprised if Fitzgerald got the information about these e-mails out to CREW himself with the intention of re-starting his investigation.
The man is described as "scary smart" for a reason.
