Rove Won't Face Charges in Connection with CIA Leak

A lawyer for senior White House aide Karl Rove says prosecutors have told him they don't expect he'll be charged with any crimes in the leak of a CIA agent's identity.

The attorney says special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald informed him of the decision yesterday.

The move ends months of speculation about the fate of one of President Bush's closest advisers.

Rove has testified five times before a grand jury looking into the leak of Valerie Plame's identity.

He's admitted he spoke with two reporters in the days before Plame's name was published.

Vice President Cheney's former chief of staff, Lewis 'Scooter' Libby, already has been indicted in the probe.
