One indication that charges might loom is a new Web site from Fitzgerald's office that holds some documents related to the investigation.
News reports have speculated that the charges could be related to either false information or to an illegal identification of Plame, although the illegal identification charge requires a fairly involved set of precursors.
Libby did not at first tell the FBI or the grand jury about conversations with New York Times reporter Judith Miller, in which he discussed Plame, though not by name. Libby later explained the omission under oath, saying he forgot.
Likewise, Rove at first did not tell the FBI about his conversations with Time magazine's Matt Cooper. Rove, too, testified that he forgot.
That fight has preoccupied the White House for more than three years, repeatedly threatening President Bush's credibility and political standing, and has again put the spotlight on Vice President Dick Cheney, who assumed a critical role in assembling and analyzing the evidence about Iraq's weapons programs.
The combatants' intensity was underscored this week in a speech by Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Colin L. Powell while he was secretary of state, who complained of a "cabal" between Mr. Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld when it came to Iraq and other national security issues and of a "real dysfunctionality" in the administration's foreign policy team.
"The real anomaly in the administration is Cheney," Mr. Scowcroft told Jeffrey Goldberg of The New Yorker. "I consider Cheney a good friend - I've known him for 30 years. But Dick Cheney I don't know anymore."
