  •  Dean: No Indictments Unless They Were So Stupid (none)
    John Dean's prediction on indictments is posted on FindLaw.

    Here ar the last two paragraphs. Note the very last sentence. Wonder why he threw that disqualifier in.

    In short, I cannot imagine any of them being indicted, unless they were acting for reasons other than national security. Because national security is such a gray area of the law, come next week, I can see this entire investigation coming to a remarkable anti-climax, as Fitzgerald closes down his Washington Office and returns to Chicago.

    In short, I think the frenzy is about to end -- and it will not go any further. Unless, of course, these folks were foolish enough to give false statements, perjure themselves or suborn perjury, or commit obstruction of justice. If they were so stupid, Patrick Fitzgerald must stay and clean house.

    •  how depressing! (none)
      you really know how to take the fun out of Fitzmas ... or Dean does.  

      one thing, though:  if it is all so likely to end anticlimatically, why the high tension in D.C.?  

      May all beings be free from fear.

      •  If they were so stupid... (none)
        Read the last sentence again.
      •  Dean isn't part of (none)
        Fitzgerald's legal team. He doesn't have any more  information than we have. Last year he was all excited about the Plame affair, predicted that the s would hit the fan around May, but nothing happened. Besides, as a lawyer, he's much better off shooting for small or no result, if the opposite happens, he can give credit to Fitzgerald and lose nothing.  

        "Judy," he said. "It's Muammar Abu Minyar al-Qaddafi."
