Truthout Editor Sticks by Leopold Article, Again
Bump and Update: Mark Ash of Truthout, like me, received denials from Mark Corallo and Bob Luskin. Ash, however, this afternoon writes he is sticking with Jason's story, saying Truthout has picked up additional sources.
Update: Mark Corallo has responded. I've added it to the end of the post.
Beleaguered investigative reporter Jason Leopold was on the Ed Schultz radio show yesterday, defending his Truthout article that Karl Rove has been indicted. He sounds very confident. You can listen here.
Jason told Schultz that on Saturday he got a phone call from his sources telling him that the action Friday was not at the courthouse, but at Patton Boggs. They provided an extraordinary level of detail about what took place at the law firm.
Jason is continuing to receive new details. He said that yesterday, he was told that the entire 4th floor of Patton Boggs was locked down for the marathon meeting. He reiterated his prior information, that Rove was there with his secret service detail, that plea negotiations were going on which ultimately were rejected outright, after which he was given an envelope containing the Indictment and told he had 24 hours to get his affairs in order.
