Rove Attack

When word came out that Time reporter Viveca Novak is being compelled to testify in the Plame-alangaboombang, I assumed it was to provide incriminating evidence. According to this report in the Washington Post, it is just the opposite.

The reporter for Time magazine who recently agreed to testify in the CIA leak case is central to White House senior adviser Karl Rove's effort to fend off an indictment in the two-year-old investigation, according to two people familiar with the situation.

Viveca Novak, who has written intermittently about the leak case for Time, has been asked to provide sworn testimony to Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald in the next few weeks after Rove attorney Robert Luskin told Fitzgerald about a conversation he had with her, the two sources said.

I only have one question. How can I, a fully grown man, go through life without ever personally knowing anybody with the last name Novak and this case has two people with that last name involved but they are in no way related? And they are both...journalists?!?!?!?!? I hope that somebody is working on that conspiracy theory already.
