Rove meeting with Fitzgerald

Think Progress has it from CNN:

CNN is told by three force sources familiar with the investigation that this morning Karl Rove, the president’s deputy chief of staff and top political adviser, is meeting with his attorney and is to meet this morning — if it is not already under way — with the special prosecutor, Patrick Fitzgerald. According to sources, the goal of the meeting is for Karl to clear up some lingering questions about his role in a White House campaign to undermine Ambassador Joe Wilson — remember he was the the critic of the Bush administration case ever going to war in Iraq, his wife the CIA operative Valerie Plame, whose name was Outed.
I don't know if this means that Fitzmas is finally going to come, but I do know that having the news run stories that your top political advisor is taking his lawyer and meeting with a Federal Prosecuter isn't good for a President that already has abismal numbers.

More news as it comes in.
