The indictment stems from a two-year investigation by special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald into whether Karl Rove, Libby or any other administration officials knowingly revealed the identity of CIA agent Valerie Plame or lied about their involvement to investigators.
Rove, President George W. Bush's closest adviser, apparently escaped indictment but remained under investigation.
