Has the worm finally turned in the CIA leak investigation?
Raw Story has the latest scoop.

Karl Rove, Deputy White House Chief of Staff
and special adviser to President George W.
Bush, has recently been providing information
to special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald in the
ongoing CIA leak investigation, sources close
to the investigation say.

According to several Pentagon sources close
to Rove and others familiar with the inquiry,
Bush's senior adviser tipped off Special
Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald to information
that led to the recent "discovery" of 250
pages of missing email from the office of
Vice President Dick Cheney.

Thirty years ago, Nixon was able to destroy evidence
by simply pressing the record button.

The current Tricky Dick wasn't so lucky.

None would name the staffers and/or
officials whom Rove is providing information
about. They did, however, explain that the
White House computer system has "real time
backup" servers and that while emails were
deleted from computers, they were still
retrievable from the backup system. By
providing the dates and recipient information
of the deleted emails, sources say, Rove was
able to chart a path for Fitzgerald directly
into the office of the Vice President.
