Within the last week, Karl Rove told President Bush and Chief of
Staff Joshua Bolten, as well as a few other high level administration
officials, that he will be indicted in the CIA leak case and will
immediately resign his White House job when the special counsel publicly
announces the charges against him, according to sources.

Details of Rove's discussions with the president and Bolten have
spread through the corridors of the White House where low-level staffers
and senior officials were trying to determine how the indictment would
impact an administration that has been mired in a number of high-profile
political scandals for nearly a year, said a half-dozen White House
aides and two senior officials who work at the Republican National

Speaking on condition of anonymity, sources confirmed Rove's
indictment is imminent. These individuals requested anonymity saying
they were not authorized to speak publicly about Rove's situation. A
spokesman in the White House press office said they would not comment on
"wildly speculative rumors."

Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin, did not return a call for comment
