The Chris Matthews Show runs on Sunday mornings and the episode in question aired 3-4 weeks ago, during the height of all the talk about Rove’s possible indictment.
As many of you are aware, Matthews has a segment towards the end of the show that he calls, “Tell Me Something I don’t Know.”
When one of the guest commentator’s turn came round, she said "We won’t be hearing of any idictment of Karl Rove in the next couple of weeks, and in fact, he won’t be indicted at all."
This isn’t a verbatim quote, necessarily, but that is the essence of what she said. I just asked my wife, and she also remembered the quote as you see above.
Unless he was acting you could tell from his expression that Chris Matthews was actually hearing this for the first time, just as everyone else, and it was indeed something he didn’t know.
I don’t recall the name of the woman, but I’m pretty sure she is a newspaper reporter.
So that’s the question: How did she know?
