Skip to comments.Rove Blew CIA Agent's Cover (O'Donnell says NewsWeak is outing him next week)
Posted on 07/02/2005 10:40:22 AM PDT by hipaatwo
I revealed in yesterday's taping of the McLaughlin Group that Time magazine's emails will reveal that Karl Rove was Matt Cooper's source. I have known this for months but didn't want to say it at a time that would risk me getting dragged into the grand jury.
McLaughlin is seen in some markets on Friday night, so some websites have picked it up, including Drudge, but I don't expect it to have much impact because McLaughlin is not considered a news show and it will be pre-empted in the big markets on Sunday because of tennis.
Since I revealed the big scoop, I have had it reconfirmed by yet another highly authoritative source. Too many people know this. It should break wide open this week. I know Newsweek is working on an 'It's Rove!' story and will probably break it tomorrow.
Uh oh.....he's at it again!
yawn, I am going to take a nap.
Is Dan Rather their fact checker?
I dont buy it ...If it is Rove they will have a firestorm ....Rove has known this is coming ....he would have cleared out by now to prevent damage to the WH
Hmmm .. Now why would an ultra liberal like Matthew Cooper be willing to go to jail to cover for ... of all people, Karl Rove ??
IMO .. It ain't him .. Nice try Larry but you are having another melt down
Matt Cooper's source for WHAT? LOL.
I'd give anything if this was the final nail in his coffin.
oh, I'm so excited!
"YOU CREEPER LIL LIAR!" I still get cracked up about that!
Larry's or Karl's coffin?
IIRC, this O'Donnell guy was continuously specualating about the source being another name... I just can't recall that name. Looks to me like Larry Liar just wants some cheap, and I mean pot-shot CHEAP, face time and a chance to try to smear Karl Rove.
Rove was a source, no doubt, commenting on the Novak column and its revelations after the fact, not for the column itself and it's content.
Not a trifling distinction, but one I fear too many won't appreciate.
Who has the pic of O'Donnell like Hannibal Lechter?
Yea, Larry's melt down was better then the Dean Scream ..*L*
The entire town knew who she was -- and they knew she was NOT a covert agent. Aldrich Ames blew her cover YEARS before.
FYI, here is the Kristof column:
The Victoria thread:
I think this whole this has been a set-up to slam Rove, not that he REALLY was the leaker but the Dems now look like:"hey, we didn't WANT to reveal the source but now the courts are MAKING us.
Do you think for one minute that they wouldn't defy the Supremes if it would implecate one of their dear liberals?
Note how it gets lost in all this who the CIA agent was: Valerie Plame, Joseph Wilson's wife. She arranged for him to be chosen by the CIA, to be sent to Africa, to "investigate" reports of Saddam seeking uranium. Then Joe Wilson came back, after having tea with some high level officials and used his non-investigation to bash the Bush administration.
Why isn't someone investigating Valerie Plame for using her CIA position for political motives?
Also, I remember Novak saying at the time, that it was common knowledge in Washington, that Joseph WIlson's wife was a CIA agent. The news part was that it was because of her request and influence that her husband was picked to be the person sent.
Also -- why aren't we having investigations of the Dems who leaked major security info many times, which put our undercover agents IN country into danger and even have gotten them killed.(not like Valerie Plame, being safely in the US)
With everything that's going on in the World, all this guy is interested in is "getting" Karl Rove. A demonstration of where his mind is at. Derangement among Democrats.
If this accusation proves false, I would strongly suggest a major Freep of MSNBC to fire this nincompoop.
But besides, (I made this point on another thread) Bill Clinton committed perjury and nothing happened to him...
Sandy Berger removed Top Secret files from safekeeping in his pants and socks, FGS, and nothing happened to him...so what exactly is the huge deal here?
Here's a question, if it IS Rove, why isn't Time running the story?
Rove wouldn't know about a CIA agent, wouldn't talk to Matthew Cooper, and wouldn't do an illegal leak. Period.
O'Donnell is losing his mind. I hope this ends up in HIS arrest.
Has anyone ever seen somebody "dragged" into a grand jury? Pet peeve of mine.
The men with the little white coats could come for Larry and he'll still be screaming LIAR
The man has some serious issues
considering cooper's story came out after novak's at best this would Rove commenting on novak's story, not the original source.
I just woke up --- no need to shout at me...lol. Right, Scooter. LOL.
Just some more crap from the Dems. If Rove was actually guilty of this they would have been on it sooner than this. This is payback for the anti-liberal statements he made last week. The dems are so easy to see through if you only look. The DS memos were supposed to show Bush and Blair plotted the war together but they don't show that. I would think this will be a similar case of unsupported accusations. After all Dems don't need proof, they just need the guts to accuse.
Stop that .. Chrissy Matthews will get all excited again *L*
Before I got to your comment, I was thinking that the guy has truly gone 'round the bend. Novak, I believe, said the source was not from the WH. I am hoping as well that he has done himself in for good with this one.
I snagged this from Vn_survivor_67-68
Below, from the full interview transcript, is an extract done by James Taranto of the Wall Street Journal of some of Lawrence ODonnells inquisition:
It's one of the many lies that the book advances. To me the most interesting lie, John O'Neill, that I would submit to you that you should answer, is, you make a lying claim
that John Kerry's antiwar activity prolonged the amount of time that prisoners of war were held in Vietnam. . . . That's a lie, John O'Neill! Keep lying, it's all you do! . . . Lies! . . . Which is not in John O'Neill's book, 'cause it's a lie! . . . That's a lie! It's another lie! That's a lie! Absolute lie! You lie in that book endlessly! . . . You lie about documents endlessly! . . . You're just lying about it! And you lied about Thurlow's Bronze Star! You lied about it as long as you could until the New York Times found the wording of what was on the citation that you as a lying writer refused to put in your pack of lies! . . . Disgusting, lying book! . . . You have no standards, John O'Neill, as an author, and you know it! It's a pack of lies! You are unfit to publish! . . . He just lied to you! He spews out this filth! Point to his name on the report, you liar! Point to his name, you liar! . . . You just spew lies! . . . I just hate the lies of John O'Neill. I hate lies. It's not an argument; they're proven lies. . . . O'Neill's a liar, he's been a liar for 35 years about this, and he's found other liars [unintelligible]. . . . They lied! . . . They're lying somewhere! . . . Lies! Just tell me the initials, you liar! Creepy liar! . . . You are a liar who makes things up! . . . You want the lies! That's how you make your living, on lies!

If it was Rove, you know the MSM would have been all over it, 24/7, headline news. A leak of the leak.... Why are the liberal journalists covering for Rove? Just doesn't add up.
I know! He'll start spitting!
Rove didn't even know Wilson went to Niger, let alone who recommended him, until Wilson revealed it in his column.
Since the Wilson column was published when the President was in Africa and the administration response was uncharacteriscally inept showing they clearly had no idea what was going on, that alone demonstrates it wasn't anyone from those quarters.
I just LOVE saying it..........they were RABID about it for MONTHS.
Wow, I hadn't read the whole transcript. O'Donnell is flat-out bonkers, isn't he?
Probably Scooter Libby?
Libby was another name the dems tossed around with abandon until he was cleared by reluctant reporters (including Matt Cooper).
That's putting it mildly
I've had that article bookmarked---not sure why you're flagging me to it, but thanks!
Was Rove "in the White House" at the time of the leak? Didn't he get his job in the WH after the last election?
