ABCNEWS TELLS WHITE HOUSE OF 'INDICTMENT' Tue Oct 25 2005 19:08:02 ET

"We have double sourced that the vice president's chief of staff has been indicted," a reporter for ABCNEWS claimed to a White House press spokesman this afternoon.

The White House refused to comment on the claim. The network said they didn't need comment, they were preparing to run with the development on this evening's network news broadcast, sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT.

ABCNEWS claimed to the White House that it had double sourced how an indictment against vice presidential chief of staff I. Lewis Libby was set.

A senior White House source quickly determined ABC was bluffing; the report did not run on the East coast feed of the program.

Developing...

UPDATE

ABC NEWS spokesman Jeff Schneider tells the DRUDGE REPORT: "There is nothing at all true about us having double sourced anything" regarding indictments.

More from Drudge:

CBS’ JOHN ROBERTS: Lawyers familiar with the case think Wednesday is when special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald will make known his decision, and that there will be indictments. Supporters say Rove and the vice president’s chief of staff, Scooter Libby, are in legal jeopardy...

Another update from Drudge:

Indictments in CIA leak case ‘about to be handed down’

expecting sirens and "impeachment" parties from the moonbat liberals.

Here is to hoping that it is Wilson and Plame to be indicted.

Fitz better have a helluva tight case for indicting Rove/Cheney/Libby

If ABC has to tell the White House, you can bet it's not Rove, Libby or Cheney being indicted.

That is a very logical point.

A bad day for Bush for sure, but Clinton had dozens of more major scandals.

ABC News reporter may have been indicted, and they are informing the WH. Or ABC News may have a source inside the OSP, and they are giving their info to the WH. Or ABC News may just be full of it. WOW! Drudge is the first reliable source on the net to post news on indictment.

'Indictment' singular. And a reference to Libby. Probably bs, but by this story Rove is off the hook.

Probably not as the media could simply claim they had been given false information.

Well, if the letters went out, then I doubt ABC would have to tell the WH unless there were NO indictments for Rove and Libby. It's past 5:40 cst so we should be hearing something pretty soon if ABC is accurate (for a change)

For a prosecutor investigating leaks, he sure has a hell of a lot of leaks.

Well if that is true, it proves Fitzgerald really is a partisan moron.

The person(s) who should be "frog marched in hand cuffs" are Wilson and his very strange wife.

Oh heck, what are laws anyway. A Bush staffer can be guilty of a non-crime by the press and wait for sentencing by the "judge". We have really gotten to the point of disregard for anything but public opinion.

Which is why this probe was created, to get Rove. If he is not indicted you can bet it is a no case and whoever is indicted is just for show.

They have to get a change of venue though in any such trial. Isn't DC something like 200% Democrat if you count the dead people that still vote?
