Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington - CREW - announced today that they have asked Patrick Fitzgerald to reopen the investigation into Karl Rove's role in Plamegate. Given the recent revelations that Rove continues to use an RNC account for 95% of his email communication, and all Rove emails prior to 2005 have been deleted, CREW thinks he may have deleted evidence of a more direct involvement in Plamegate. Said Melanie Sloan, executive director at CREW:
"It looks like Karl Rove may well have destroyed evidence that implicated him in the White House's orchestrated efforts to leak Valerie Plame Wilson's covert identity to the press in retaliation against her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson."
Not so good for Mr. Rove... but he has proven nigh invincible to date, so he may survive even this. They're just emails, I guess. Right?
