The Road To Rove

According to Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo, this morning's McClatchey story on the involvement of Karl Rove in the firing of federal prosecutor David Iglesias in New Mexico means that

"[w]e're now well past the point where anyone can pretend that Iglesias wasn't fired because he refused to use his office to advance the interests of the New Mexico Republican party by indicting Democrats."

Now the questioning shifts to San Diego where federal prosecutor Carol Lam was extending her corruption investigation from sad-sack Duke Cunningham to House Appropriations Committee powerhouse Rep. Jerry Lewis and into the CIA.

Did Karl Rove have Carol Lam fired to prevent further investigations into GOP corruption?

If so, that sounds a lot like obstruction of justice.
