No Rove indictment today -- but the investigation continues

A day of reckoning may come for Bush's top political advisor, but it isn't here yet.

Karl Rove's lawyer has just issued a statement that seems to confirm what we've been hearing: The president's top political advisor won't be indicted today, but he will remain under investigaton for his role in the Valerie Plame case. Robert Luskin says that "Mr. Rove's status" has not changed and that the investigation is continuing.

The Associated Press says that Patrick Fitzgerald's office told Luskin last night that the special prosecutor has not completed his investigation into Rove's role and still has matters to resolve before deciding "what he is going to do."

We'll learn more when Fitzgerald releases documents around noon today and goes before the cameras at 2 p.m.
