Via Raw Story, headlines that tingle your nethers:
Rove said cooperating in CIA leak inquiry
Apparently the steady drip of Cheney-centered WH leaks came from Rove.
Like every internet scoop I strongly recommend that you take the Raw Story piece with an appropriately-sized brick of salt. So with my enthusiasm appropriately tempered, I still found this to be highly amusing:
While these sources did not provide any details regarding what type of arrangements Rove’s attorney Robert Luskin may have made with the special prosecutor’s office, if any, they were able to provide some information regarding what Rove imparted to Fitzgerald’s team. The individuals declined to go on the record out of concern for their jobs.
According to one source close to the case, Rove is providing information on deleted emails, erased hard drives and other types of obstruction by staff and other officials in the Vice President’s office. Pentagon sources close to Rove confirmed this account.
None would name the staffers and/or officials whom Rove is providing information about. They did, however, explain that the White House computer system has “real time backup” servers and that while emails were deleted from computers, they were still retrievable from the backup system. By providing the dates and recipient information of the deleted emails, sources say, Rove was able to chart a path for Fitzgerald directly into the office of the Vice President.
Cue protests that the Wilsons are partisan hacks who had it coming…two…one…

Cool. The only danger that I see out of this is if Rove has an epiphany and joins us lefties in solidarity against the Republicans. Seriously, we don’t want him.
