Raw Story has reported that Fitzgerald is in fact seeking indictments in the
leak case according to their sources.
Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has decided to seek indictments in
the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson and has submitted at least
one to the grand jury, those close to the investigation tell RAW STORY.
Fitzgerald will seek at least two indictments, the sources say. They note
that it remains to be seen whether the grand jury will approve the charges.
Those familiar with the case state that Fitzgerald likely will not seek
indictments that assert officials leaked Plame’s name illegally. Rather,
they say that he will focus charges in the arena of lying to investigators.
From the reports about the make up of the grand jury, the indictments should
not be that hard to get. There are 23 people on it and it requires 12, or a
majority of the votes. The jury is also composed mainly of middle class African
American women. Most likely if he is seeking indictments then they will come
out. Of course he could get the indictments and also issue a scathing report of
other involvement that might provoke Congress into taking up the issue further.
