Drudge Flash: Plame investigation close to end

Drudge has a flash saying that the Plame investigation is near a close. Interesting tidbit:
Fitzgerald is not likely to seek an indictment for the crime he originally set out to investigate -- whether a government official knowingly exposed a covert agent. Fitzgerald may instead seek to charge a government official with committing perjury by giving conflicting information to prosecutors. Developing...

Hmm.. Government official. Note not a white house official, but government official. Tie this with the fact that he still wants to talk to the two reporters. Liberal reporters. Reporters who are trying everything under the sun to avoid testifying in secret.

I've always thought that this would eventually not expose Andrew Card or Karl Rove like the Kossacks were hoping for, but rather someone tied to Wilson who leaked his wife's name to elevate him to star-status, and begin the cries for "scandal". Surely Wilson and Plame are better off after the leak than before.

Looks like we will soon see, once the "reporter's shield" issue is resolved.... Waiting with baited breath.

Update: Here is the link to the washpost story. It looks like its been complete for 6 months. The only thing holding it up is the reporters refusal to testify. This despite the Media's push to have the investigation in the first place. As the old saying goes: be careful what you wish for.
