CIA Leak Case Indictments – A Bluff?

Word went out yesterday that ABC News had intelligence about imminent indictments that were to be handed down today in the ‘Plamegate’ affair. Sources warned the White House to be prepared. Since then, Washington has been on pins and needles waiting for the news, yet nothing has transpired. Now, we hear that there is no imminent news coming today.

Via Drudge Report:

Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald said he was done today after meeting with the grand jury in the CIA leak investigation. Grand jurors left the courthouse earlier. Fitzgerald later left the building following the session with no comment. The grand jurors also were seen leaving the building, with no announcement of any indictments…

CNN also has similar information about today being a ‘no news’ day.

Why the hype by ABC yesterday? Was it a bluff and if so, for what purpose? What does this mean for the case? Is this really just smoke without fire?

UPDATE: The Raw Story reports that the prosecutor will seek indictments against Karl Rove and Scooter Libby.
