Fitzmas Eve

It's beginning to look a lot like Fitzmas...

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A curious and twisting episode that began in the sixth paragraph of a 2003 newspaper column could culminate Friday in criminal charges reaching to the top echelons of the White House.

The special prosecutor in the CIA leak investigation, Patrick Fitzgerald, is expected on Friday to announce the results of his probe, including whether a federal grand jury will issue any indictments, an attorney involved in the case told CNN.

Two lawyers involved in the case also have told CNN that as his investigation winds down the prosecutor is focusing on whether Karl Rove, President Bush's top political strategist, committed perjury. Rove testified four times in front of the grand jury.

I'm dreaming of an indictment Fitzmas
And the taking down of Karl Rove
Where the handcuffs glisten
And jurors listen
To hear his jail cell close

Merry Fitzmas to all, and to all good night.

UPDATE: Late word that it might only be Libby for now but Karl is still under investigation. So, um, just substitute Libby for Rove above where appropriate.
