Jason Leopold & John ByrneROVE TURNED DOWN TUESDAY PLEA DEALThu Oct 27, 2005 12:35188.8.131.52From "Raw Story"
Jason Leopold & John Byrne write:
"Those close to the investigation said Rove was offered a deal Tuesday to plead guilty to perjury for a reduced charge. Rove’s lawyer was told that Fitzgerald would drop an obstruction of justice charge if his client agreed not to contest allegations of perjury, they said.
Rove declined to plead guilty to the reduced charge, the sources said, indicating through his attorney Robert Luskin that he intended to fight the charges. A call placed to Luskin was not returned."
