update:

(CNSNews.com) - Top Bush adviser Karl Rove is expected to appear with President Bush later this morning to discuss his impending resignation. Rove told the Wall Street Journal he will leave the White House at the end of August. In an opinion piece on page A-15, Paul Gibot explains why Rove has decided to leave. "I just think it's time," Rove told the newspaper, adding that he's been thinking about leaving for some time. "There's always something that can keep you here, and as much as I'd like to be here, I've got to do this for the sake of my family," the newspaper quoted him as saying. He and his wife reportedly plan to return to Texas, where their son attends college. As President Bush's chief strategist and advisor, Rove has been a major target for liberals, some of whom describe him as "Bush's brain." Most recently, he's been the target of various Democrat subpoenas, and many believe he was the desired target of Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald in the Valerie Plame case. Rove told the Wall Street Journal he knows his critics will claim that he's leaving now to avoid congressional scrutiny, but he said it's not true. Rove said the catalyst for his Aug. 31 departure was a message from Chief of Staff Josh Bolten, who told senior White House aides that if they didn't resign soon, they'd be obligated to stay to the end of Bush's term. Rove reportedly plans to write a book on his 14 years with George W. Bush.

Karl Rove to leave White House at month's end

WASHINGTON - Karl Rove, President Bush's close friend and chief political strategist, plans to leave the White House at the end of August, joining a lengthening line of senior officials heading for the exits in the final 1 1/2 years of the administration.

On board with Bush since the beginning of his political career in Texas, Rove was nicknamed "the architect" and "boy genius" by the president for designing the strategy that twice won him the White House. Critics call Rove "Bush's brain."

A criminal investigation put Rove under scrutiny for months during the investigation into the leak of a CIA operative's name but he was never charged with any crime. In a more recent controversy, Rove, citing executive privilege, has refused to testify before Congress about the firing of U.S. attorneys.

Bush was expected to make a statement Monday with Rove. Later Monday, Rove, his wife and their son were to accompany Bush on Air Force One when the president flies to Texas for his vacation.

"Obviously it's a big loss to us," White House deputy press secretary Dana Perino said. "He's a great colleague, a good friend, and a brilliant mind. He will be greatly missed, but we know he wouldn't be going if he wasn't sure this was the right time to be giving more to his family, his wife Darby and their son. He will continue to be one of the president's greatest friends."

Since Democrats won control of Congress in November, some top administration officials have announced their resignations. Among those who have left are White House counselor Dan Bartlett, budget director Rob Portman, chief White House attorney Harriet Miers, political director Sara Taylor, deputy national security adviser J.D. Crouch and Meghan O'Sullivan, another deputy national security adviser who worked on Iraq. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was forced out immediately after the election as the unpopular war in Iraq dragged on.

No, Bush can still claim executive privilege for Rove's time at the White House. Just like he did with Harriet Miers.

Will he really admit the facts? He was one of the inside job and he and his family can be killed from testifying.

Wouldn't this give more influence and power for Cheney to push for his agenda ?

I think he simply did not want to carry out the 2nd 911 attack and he resigned. I can not imagine he confess about truth. If he confesses he will get killed by assassinator or angry people.

It's quite possible that he's just jumping ship like many others in the administration have.

At this point, what's really left for him to accomplish? He's already assisted in bringing the country to the absolute edge of dictatorial rule, what else does he really need to be present for?

These guys all have contingency plans...He knows exactly what he's going to do now.

Bush and Cheney don't have to worry at all...they're not even part of the executive branch.

I just hope that the George W Bush Administration isn't forgotten about after the next in command takes over. This is the US's last chance to prove that there is still some sort of constitutional republic left.

I smell something fishy here...this guy knows WAY too much for them to let him just go off on his merry way to be with his family (yeah right!). There's a method to this madness. I'm sure of it.

While I like to see f*ckheads like him gone and out of office, it tends to put out the fire of going after them to prosecute once they are gone. Look what happened with old Rumdumb. Hardly a peep is made about him anymore and he was a main player.
