22 Nov 2004 CBS: No DeLay Indictment
CBS News reports (almost sounds like the beginning of a joke, doesn’t it?) that all the kerfluffle about the House GOP changing its rules for Tom DeLay was just that: Kerfluffle.
The powerful GOP chieftain is unlikely to be indicted by a state grand jury probing alleged campaign finance violations in Texas, according to an official involved in the investigation.
“No, no, I really don’t think DeLay will be indicted,” the official told CBSNews.com. “And to be quite honest, [DeLay’s] lawyers know that.”
Of course, the source here is CBS, and a sidebar to the story uses the phrase “even if convicted by grand jury.” Of course, grand jurys can’t convict.
For what it is worth, however, I doubt he’ll be indicted as well.
Addendum: Instapundit has some good CBS jokes up today.
