This from the Washington Post:
"A source close to Rove said Bush's chief political adviser and his legal team are now genuinely concerned he could face charges."
Everyone should read the article:

Rove is going for his 4th appearance in front of the grand jury for Plamegate. After reading the Post article, I wouldn't be entirely surprised if Rove is indicted soon. I wonder how the President would react to that? Will he simply roll back on his promise again?
President Bush started by stating anyone involved in the scandal would be fired. Now he's stated it's anyone criminally indicted. What's next? Will Karl Rove be maintaining his duties as Deputy Chief of Staff from a federal penitentiary? Bush seems to think this is just a big game, but there's no envelope revealing Karl Rove in the library with a candlestick at the end of this one. Like it or not, the President will have to deal with the realities of the situation soon. If he severs Rove from his administration now, he just may make it through the last three years of his administration without calls from members of congress for his impeachment.
As much as I would like to continue to see President Bush make a fool out of himself, I have too much respect for the institution of the Presidency. President Bush is a disgrace to the office and he threatens the stability of this country. Despite my glee at his failures and my I-told-you-so attitude, I sincerely hope he rights his wrongs for the good of this country.
