    The TO reporter Leopald was the first to break another development in this case long before the rest of the mainstream media, in February – the existence of the 250 pages of emails from Vice President Dick Cheney’s office and the Office of the President that were written in mid-2003.

    Another TO veteran comments on the story:

    Oh Fa Chrissake…

    For those who have been waiting for this, here it is. For those who still doubt, well, I guess this is the big throwdown. We are reporting this has happened, we have checked and re-checked our sources. Truthout is breaking this first.

  3. Nominay says:

    Pitt also claimed yesterday that Leopold has an exclusive on this. Larry Johnson reports that Joe Wilson believes Leopold, stating that he has multiple sources. Jeralyn Merritt reports that she has emailed with Leopold all night and has posted “I believe him”. This was after she called Luskin last night, who told her “It’s completely not true and you shouldn’t be calling me at 10:00 on a Saturday night. You should be calling Mark Corallo.” This last source coming from

  4. Nominay says:

    Rivers Pitt continues to post in the blogosphere with supreme confidence regarding Leopold’s reporting. As Leopold’s senior editor he vigourously defends him, the story and Truthout. He cites unnamed sources who are privy to sealed indictments. He claims these sources are substantiated without validation from corporate media whom he criticized as lazy. He also suggests that the story will not break open further at least throught Sunday (today).

  5. Nominay says:

    Based on a recent conversation Pitt had with Leopold (today), a formal announcement of the indictment would come no earlier than Tuesday of this week.

  6. Dave Hoffman says:

    I do not credit the story. The details (“he has 24 hours to get his affairs in order”) are too telling to be true.

  7. Paul Gowder says:

    Bah, tradesports doesn’t have a line on it. It did at the end of last year, and I lost a little money betting — uh, I mean “investing” — that Rove would go down by March. Scandal. Scandal.

  8. Seth R. says:

    According to WSJ Law Blog, it was all just a hoax.

    Apparently Robert Luskin spent his whole evening telling reporters that he never had the conversation in question.

    Jason Leopold has already responded to ruskin’s

    denial by saying, “Rove lies, Ruskin lies”.
