Keep Checking Fitzgerald's Website
Patrick J. Fitzgerald Special Counsel Official DOJ (Dept. of Justice) website.
~~ to Rep.

Jerrold Nadler's site, he wants Fitz to handle the Impeachment.

Also go to Rep. Hinchey's site - he sent a letter to Fitz to go where the evidence led him, giving support to Comey's mandate and 40 members of the House also signed.

There are some very brave Congresspersons and we should thank them!

Prosecutor's Progress Is Rare for Leak Inquiries
Published: October 26, 2005

Unlike any of his predecessors, Patrick Fitzgerald, has delved deeply into conversations that government
officials and reporters had every reason to believe would remain confidential.

Today on the Tom-Toms

Just got off the phone with a source who has appeared before Fitzgerald's grand jury who thinks that the Special Counsel is going to "go wide" with indictments -- i.e., a lot of people are going to get nailed. And from what I'm hearing, I agree. Which is why I put so little stock in anyone who's running around saying
"oooh, this just in -- Rove and Libby are going to be indicted! Announcement tomorrow!" That just lights my bullshit meter up like a pinball machine. Man, you are really out on a limb with that prediction, aren't ya?

Also, a grand juror was overheard waving to a reporter and saying "see you Friday" when they left today.

So we may not be quite there yet.

The bottom line in all this is that at this point, I think nobody knows what's going to happen, so take all predictions with a grain of salt, even this one. I hate to throw cold water on everyone's expectations for tomorrow, but even amidst the hearty speculation we like to engage in around here we also like to ground things in reality. And the reality is if Fitzgerald is still pursuing an investigation, he's probably going to want
some time to use that info in his "come to Jesus" talks with the perps.
Update: Lawrence O'Donnell agrees: "Experienced federal prosecutors are saying today that they expect Fitzgerald to extend the term of the grand jury even if he obtains indictments this week."

~~Civil rights violations?

I was intrigued to read one of Fitzgerald's briefs, which makes reference to the leak being "apparent retribution" or "apparent retaliation" for Joe Wilson's public criticism of the Bush administration.

I wonder whether Fitzgerald could include a count of civil rights violations, alleging that the government attempted to silence free speech by punishing Wilson?

Nice blog site. While searching websites looking for filesharing software related info, I decided to try blog sites. Wow, there are so many of them it's amazing. I never heard of or knew what a blog was until last year. Now they're everywhere. And it seems like everybody but me has one. Anyway, I'm trying to improve my mp3 music sharing site and was originally looking for relevant information I could use. Got sidetracked a lttle It was interesting. Thanks for the read, Mike

Guess what liberal
said this: I was in a
tiny village in Tepoztlan
in Mexico on the 17th
of September, 1985,
and I had a vision-like
experience climbing
a mountain there on
the top of which is
a temple to the
Christ figure,
And one of these
little UFOs came
over that mountain,
and I was signaled
from a group of persons
to come, and I was
beamed up into that
small vehicle and carried
to a larger vehicle where
I heard the voice of my
leader and teacher, the
Honorable Elijah
Mohammed saying
these words to me...
(Minister Farrakhan)

The left just seems to get
more excited about anything
when death is on the table.
I don't know what it is, whether
it's disaster death or war death
or society deciding we're going
to off some of our fellow citizens,
they get ginned up about it, really
get excited about the death aspect.
But, but, you start talking about life
and somehow they just don't have
as much interest in that, as though
it is enlightened to understand that
it's some people's duty to die and
get out of the way, and that not
everybody has a right to life. It
depends on what somebody
else wants. So I am continually
amazed at the left.
