MoveOn PAC Calls for Rove's Resignation, Questions President's Failure to Act

WASHINGTON, July 11 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Michael Isikoff reports in the July 18 issue of Newsweek that White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove revealed to Time Magazine reporter Matt Cooper that Valerie Plame, the wife of Ambassador Joe Wilson, worked for the CIA.

Statement by Tom Matzzie, Washington Director, MoveOn PAC:

"This report makes two things clear:

"First, in revealing the identity of a covert CIA agent, Rove either knowingly broke the law, or committed an act of gross negligence. In either case he should resign or the President should fire him.

"Second, the President failed to act upon learning that his chief political adviser blew the cover of a CIA agent.

"These facts raise several questions to which the President owes the American people answers: What did he know? When did he know it? And why did he fail to act?

"Clearly Rove sought to retaliate against Plame's husband, Ambassador Joe Wilson, for correctly refuting Administration claims that Saddam Hussein sought to acquire 'yellowcake' uranium in Africa, part of the case the President was attempting to make for invading Iraq. Clearly, Rove put the protection of President Bush's political agenda ahead of national security when he disclosed Plame's identity. He jeopardized the safety of an under cover intelligence agent who was working to stop the spread of nuclear weapons. Clearly Rove's and the President's willingness to remain silent about this until the very last minute caused significant pain and anguish to two journalists, one of whom is now in jail, for refusing to reveal Rove as their source."

We should definitely consult these people before nominating anyone to the Supreme Court.

What can be done to get a FOREIGN INFLUENCE election probe done on MoveOn.org?

I believe there's actually a FEDERAL LAW against this.  So Soros and all of his Foreign Election Buying and MoveOn front work may in fact be a crime.

But then again, Democrat = Criminal, WHAT WAS I THINKING??

I call for Move On to move out of the United States or, failing that, to register as an agent of a foreign power.

First, Valarie Plame isn't an undercover operative, she's an analyst and hasn't done undercover work for about eight years.

Second, Rove didn't give her name to Cooper.

Third, Cooper could have found her name the same way I did, on Joe Wilson's home page which was still up the day after the Novak column appeared.

Fourth, it was Wilson, not Bush, that was proven wrong about Hussein's attempts to buy yellowcake.

That being said, Howard Dean should resign or be fired from DNC leadership... oh, wait... I take that back.  Keep him in place for the next 20 years, please.

Karl Rove clearly lied either to Bush or to Bush's press secretary, Scott McClellan, about Rove's role in revealing to Cooper and various other scandalmongers that Ambassador Wilson's wife was a CIA covert agent. Rove violated Government secrecy law by revealing such information to Cooper, at least. Rove's lawyer now relies upon technicalities in arguing for his client's innocence.

The Bush administration owes Mr. and Mrs. Wilson an apology for wrecking her CIA career. Aren't Bush and Rove men enough to apologize to the Wilsons?

There are more than a few problems with this press release: Hussein did seek yellowcake ore from Africa. That is not what Wilson was supposed to look into.

We do not know that Valerie Plame was a covert operative.

Most importantly, unlike George Soros, Karl Rove has not been convicted of any crime.

1. Her name being known is not the issue. The issue is whether someone revealed that she was, in fact, an undercover operative for the CIA.

2. The fact that she worked at the CIA was known, as was her name. Again the issue is did someone reveal her position as an undercover operative for the CIA

We are investigating to see who revealed her undercover status. Frankly, I don't care who is was, they should be punished.
