He's back.

Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is meeting for the first time with a new grand jury today. The Associated Press reports that Fitzgerald walked into the federal courthouse in Washington this morning with file-toting deputies at his side. There's no immediate word on the agenda for today, although Fitzgerald was previously reported to have been interested in probing developments involving Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward before turning to the discussions Time reporter Viveca Novak had with Karl Rove's lawyer, Robert Luskin.

Is this good for Rove? Bad for Rove? About someone else altogether? It's hard to say just yet, but we can say this much: You don't need the help of a grand jury to not indict.
