One Down, More to Go?

Libby facing 5-count indictment for obstruction, perjury and false statements.

ThinkProgress has links to Fitz press release and formal indictment.

I haven't read either in detail yet. But the part of the press release I have read makes statements suggesting (to me, anyway) that Valerie Wilson's status was in fact classified and that Libby (i) knew or should have known that, and (ii) was clearly on a mission to discredit Joe Wilson using information about her. These things make me wonder if Fitz is done with Libby --- that is, they make me wonder if Fitz thinks Libby did in fact violate IIPA.

By now most people have probably seen that Rove gave Fitz info suggesting that his own false statements were inadvertent rather than obstructive, perjurious, etc. It will be interesting to see what happens on this front as Fitz decides what to do about Rove.

Press conference scheduled for 2pm.....
