Fitzgerald to hold press conference

The grand jury investigating the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame ends today. Federal prosecuter Patrick Fitzgerald has scheduled a press conference for 1pm CST.

From Reuters:

Indictments could trigger an immediate shake-up at the White House, already on the defensive over the response to Hurricane Katrina, opposition to the Iraq war and the withdrawal of Bush's nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, Harriet Miers.

Despite initial denials, both Rove and Libby spoke to reporters in June and July 2003 about Plame.

It was unclear how Fitzgerald would keep the Rove investigation going since the current grand jury is scheduled to expire at the end of the day on Friday.
