Libby May Face Obstruction Charges

Vice President Dick Cheney's top aide, Scooter Libby, "could face obstruction charges over whether he tried to shape a New York Times reporter's testimony about the outing of a covert CIA operative," Reuters reports.

The Washington Post and New York Times also point to Libby.

Meanwhile, Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol predicted both Libby and Karl Rove will be indicted. "I believe, if I had to predict ñ and I donít know more this than anybody else reading the papers ñ that both Libby and Rove will be indicted, not for what the original referral was about but for some combination of disclosing classified information or perhaps failing to be fully candid with federal investigators or with the grand jury." Crooks and Liars has the video.
