By signaling that he had no plans to issue the grand jury’s findings in such detail, Mr. Fitzgerald appeared to narrow his options either to indictments or closing his investigation with no public disclosure of his findings, a choice that would set off a political firestorm.
Now, those who have made their conclusions already are obviously jumping to the conclusion that since no report will be forthcoming, that indictments will come instead. These people are giddy about it.
As I have said repeatedly I am refraining from jumping to any conclusions here.
Fact of the matter is a report without special permission from a judge issuing a report on grand jury proceedings is illegal! Without that judicial permission no final report will come with or without indictments.
Think about what grand juries are. A person summoned to testify in front of a grand jury has no representation but are confronted by prosecutors, and by the jurors. Furthermore, there is no resort to the fifth amendment. If you are asked a question you answer it or ask Judy Miller what happens. So, there are good reasons for keeping what goes on in a grand jury secret. If an indictment is forthcoming then the facts of the grand jury become public.
Now, the leftists have already tried & convicted the people involved in this case (i.e. they have come to believe Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, et al guilty) and they can do so (however, they do not have the right to revoke someone's civil liberties). However, before anyone's civil rights are revoked we have this thing called due process (which is lacking in a grand jury) and the government must prove the guilt of the accused instead of the accused having to prove their innocence.
