Probe Into Leak of CIA Agent's Identity May Be Complete
Drudge Report ^ | 4/6/05 | Matt Drudge

The special prosecutor investigating whether Bush administration officials illegally revealed the identity of a covert CIA operative says he finished his investigation months ago -- except for questioning two reporters who have refused to testify, the WASHINGTON POST is planning to report on Thursday.

Special counsel Patrick Fitzgerald has interviewed columnist Robert Novak, who first published the name of undercover CIA officer Valerie Plame, the report suggests.

Fitzgerald is not likely to seek an indictment for the crime he originally set out to investigate -- whether a government official knowingly exposed a covert agent. Fitzgerald may instead seek to charge a government official with committing perjury by giving conflicting information to prosecutors.

I think that we need to start loudly bringing these issues up again and again...even things like Kerry's promise to sign the SF180....what's happened with that? Unless we bring them up, they fall away. We have to show that even has-beens like Kerry are accountable...after all, he's still a senator.


To the People of Massachuchetuerstes: WHY do you elect a brain-dead-alchoholic over and over again....You don't have a clue how stupid you appear to the rest of the United States. You are laughed at, and detested how stupid you are. We hate your drunk senator. Maybe you should move to canada, they like your kind there. Another blue state deleted.

If not a "Terri" thread, how about a "Pope" thread as a substitute. I know the 80% of Americans who ARE NOT Catholic really want more.

I think the news media have realized that they can run interference for the left if they just get a Catholic story like Schiavo/Pope going.

Everybody give a big wave to the DU clowns viewing this thread.

NO, IT WASN'T A CRIME FOR NOVAK TO NAME VALERIE PLAME! SHE WASN'T A "COVERT AGENT" ACCORDING TO THE LAW PROTECTING COVERT AGENTS FROM BEING OUTED!!!
