Bill Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard, said he expects indictments this week in the CIA leak case involving White House advisers Karl Rove and Scooter Libby.
Kristol said "the mood is bleak in the White House today, and said the environment surrounding the federal grand jury testimony is "pretty grim. Although the indictments may not ultimately result in anything substantive, Kristol said there is a pins-and-needles feel to the grand jury investigation into the leaking of a CIA agent's name to the media in 2003.
"The net has been cast wide, Kristol told Fox News Tuesday. "Lots of junior aides have testified. Its been a very comprehensive investigation by the prosecutor. I think there will be indictments and the mood is pretty bleak in the White House.
As for what this means for President Bush and the daily working of the White House, Kristol said it is too early to tell.
"The White House has to ask, How do we segregate this? This is a problem, but the legal system has to run its course.
"Meanwhile, Kristol said, "the president has to take the initiative on foreign policy and economic policy and sort of set this aside.
How does Kristol know? Sources? Why would anyone in the White House leak to him? He doesn't have their best interests at heart.
He sounds like Saul Rosenberg from the Jerky Boys CD's.
The real question is whether or not Bill will bring all his shoes and glasses?
What is this man's problem? I haven't seen ANYTHING coming out of Fitzgerald's office, does he have some secret direct line?
Bill Kristol, the sunshine patriot. All for the War in Iraq, but just not in agreement with HOW the War is being run. OK Bill, just relax and take a deep breath.
[pump, pump, pump, pump...]
Perhaps the messenger shouldn't be shot until we find out whether or not his message is in error.
Wonder how Bill Kristol enjoys being in bed with Pat Buchanan? I know politics makes for strange bedfellow but the most rabid Neo-Con holding hands with the Most Rabid Paleo-Con?
It's all gonna trace back to Joe "I'm a victim, really" Wilson.
kristolnacht is a flaming rino and even worse, in mcpain's back pocket. This semi-liberal POS has done everything he can to throw dirt on the White House. He knows nothing.
Kristol wishes. He wishes he had more influence with the american public than he does.
Mood is bleak you say? Geeeee...I guess this means he (Bush) won't get reelected...ahhhh...yeah...
We don't need to wait. We know the messager. Sorry the reality doesn't match little Billy's and your hopes
True enough, but honestly if you were under investigation and waiting to find out if you were going to be indicted, would you be in a hap happ happy mood? Kristol reporting that the mood is bleak is like saying that the sky is cloudy when it is raining.
[cue the Odd Couple theme]
Im getting a little tired of Kristol..
