Rove Not A Target Of Fitzgerald’s Grand Jury

After Karl Rove finished testifying before Fitzgerald’s grand jury his lawyer Robert Luskin issued the following statement:

Karl Rove appeared today before the grand jury investigating the disclosure of a CIA agent’s identity. He testified voluntarily and unconditionally at the request of special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald to explore a matter raised since Mr. Rove’s last appearance in October 2005. In connection with this appearance, the special counsel has advised Mr. Rove that he is not a target of the investigation. Mr. Fitzgerald has affirmed that he has made no decisions regarding charges. At the request of the special counsel, Mr. Rove will not discuss the substance of his testimony.

See if you can find any evidence of this statement from Karl Rove’s attorney in any of the news stories about him on the wires at this moment:

Instead we get reportage such as this:

Karl Rove’s appearance before a grand jury in the CIA leak case Wednesday comes on the heels of a "target letter" sent to his attorney recently by Special …

And notice that they manage to keep calling Valerie Plame a covert agent.
