Byron York: Corallo Denies Leopold's Rove Article

NRO's Byron York reports he spoke to Rove publicist Mark Corallo who stated unequivocally that Fitzgerald did not go to Robert Luskin's law office Friday or tell Luskin Rove has been indicted. He said Jason Leopold's article was false.

Did Patrick Fitzgerald come to Patton Boggs for 15 hours Friday?
Did he come to Patton Boggs for any period of time Friday?
Did he meet anywhere else with Karl Rove's representatives?
No.Did he communicate in any way with Karl Rove's representatives?
Did he inform Rove or Rove's representatives that Rove had been indicted?No.

So, is this Corallo spin? Larry Johnson, or someone pretending to be him at Democratic Underground says Joseph Wilson was told the same thing as Leopold. York concludes:
But for some media blogger out there, it might be reasonable to ask: Where are these reports coming from,

Either Corallo is spinning or someone is setting Jason and others up.

Jason said today on Pacifica Radio will disclose his sources if his report turns out to be false. He is expecting the announcement on Rove to be Tuesday or Wednesday.
Jane says :
That's FANTASTIC. That really turns this whole thing into a win-win. If Rove has already been indicted, we all celebrate. If not, we get to show that the blogosphere has higher standards than the MSM when Leopold outs his sources.
