Conservative pundit idicates that Plame indictments are likely.

Weekly Standard Editor and former Bush Sr. White House Staffer Bill Kristol appears to be preparing the Republican party faithful for sacrificing one (or more) of their own.

"Criminal defense lawyers I’ve spoken to who are friendly to the administration are very worried that there will be one or more indictments in the next three weeks of senior administration officials . . . I think it’s going to be bad for the Bush administration."

In other words, the defense attorneys for people like Rove and Libby know that indictments are likely, presumably because they also know that their clients got caught in a pack of lies. They also seem to suggest that more information has been spilling out during recent testimony, thereby requiring the prosecution to follow up. Indictments are imminent, but fresh clues and due dilligence may require a few more weeks of followup. Meanwhile, the Bush administration officials involved get to sweat, hoping that everyone will keep their stories straight and that one of the accused won't sing to the prosecutor and sell them down the river.

Amusingly, Kristol also stated "I hate the criminalization of politics." Yes, this was the same Bill Kristol who was one of the first to spread rumors about Monica Lewinsky. Obviously, he hates the criminalization of politics even more when he's not an active participant.
