Rove rumor mill.

Lawrence O’Donnell says the “buzz among the Washington press corps right now” is that Karl Rove asked to testify to the grand jury today, signaling that Rove’s lawyer “believes an indictment is imminent and is sending his client back to make a final desperate attempt to avoid indictment.”

UPDATE: “According to NBC News’ David Shuster, legal sources say Rove volunteered to testify and was no subpoenaed. Rove’s decision followed a recent conversation with Fitzgerald.”
