WASHINGTON, July 13 /U.S. Newswire/ -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today in response to media inquiries about White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove's involvement in leaking the identity of CIA official Valerie Plame:
"The American people deserve the truth about who in the White House recklessly disclosed the identity of a CIA clandestine service officer, endangering our national security. The first President Bush called it a traitorous act to reveal the names of those involved in intelligence collection.
"The President said two years ago that he wanted to get to the bottom of this. If he were sincere, it would have happened. For two years, there has been an investigation that did not reveal Karl Rove's involvement until a reporter went to jail. It looks to me that there may have been some effort by people in the White House to obstruct the investigation.
"The President has said that anyone who leaked the identity of Ms. Plame should no longer be part of his Administration. The American people and Congress expect the President to keep his word. That means firing Karl Rove and anyone else in the White House if they identified her as a CIA clandestine service officer.

George W. Bush was reported as responding: "Who cares what you think?". Karl Rove was heard to mumble "Bite me". Dick Cheney's comment cannot be repeated on a family forum.
Guilty before trial or indictment. The liberals have gone absolutely mad...........
Cooper never released Plame's name.
That means that the conversation between Rove and Cooper does not constitute a leak.
Pelosi can go pound sand.
She is pitiful. I am laughing so hard. Its becoming hysterical. God Bless em. (sarcasm)
Where was this bit** when Sandy Burglar was breaking the law?
Especially when Rove hasn't broken any laws.
Sentence first and verdicct afterwards......
..sounds really sinister...
Facts are a bothersome fact to those on the left
This is getting so silly. Please keep it up MSM and Rats. Please....
Pray for W and Our Freedom Fighting Troops
As if she and her cohorts give a flip about being traitors - they consider the traitor brand to be a badge of honor. Kind of like Charlie Manson preaching to be kind to your fellows.
Is Pelosi accusing Rove of perjury? That can be the only conclusion if the investigation did not reveal Rove's involvement until Miller went to jail. Pelosi is saying that Rove did not testify truthfully when he was before the grand jury.
Let's see, the GOP leadership in the House consists of a bulldog: Hastert, and a pitbull: DeLay. So, who do the RATS select to take them on? A French poodle.
You might want to add Kerry to the pictures-judging by his new face yesterday ,
he's trying for the startled Pelosi does The Joker by way of Michael Jackson, look.
Nancy Pelosi and Jennifer Wilbanks- separated at birth.
Too funny. I want to know what the NY Times knows and when did they know it.
How would Pelosi know he committed perjury? Grand jury proceedings are supposed to be secret? Did somebody leak it to her? Haul her ass in and force her to reveal her source!
maybe she was confusing it with a poor palestine service officer....too much botox will do that you know
The world really stopped spinning to learn her opinion on this, now didn't it?
...after all, there motives are pure. (barf)
She was under the table.
Tell me, though -- who is the person in the picture on the left?
I suppose after the Dems found Tom Delay guilty without trial it was a small step to convict Rove. Hang around and when they get their liberal judges in power they may convict you to.
You can buy more, if you like it, from Traitor Joe.
Merde El Toro!! That was most probably the reply You didn't include in your great post.
I thought Pigface was Waxman?....
How could anybody say so many things that are just flat out stupid lies in a prepared statement? I have come to expect that she runs off at the mouth, but this pile of garbage was written in advance.
The only comfort is that now that Nancy Pelosi has jumped on the bandwagon, you can be absolutely sure that the horse pulling it is dead.
I wouldn't be surprised if the Dems huddled a few days ago and said something like this: "Look, we need to weaken the president before these Supreme Court nomination hearings, so let's make a big stink accusing Rove of breaking the law in the Plame case. We know it's a flimsy charge and it's not gonna stick, but it's something we can use against the president. Agreed? Now, here are the talking points . . . "
It's truly funny watching these CLOWNS act as though Plame is Agent 99 or the girl from U.N.C.L.E. who's about to be tortured by hostile spies thanks to Karl Rove
Pelosi is prejudging the outcome of the grand jury investigation, in direct contradiction to the "innocent until proven guilty" principle that is supposed to govern this country. The Reps need to make this point forcefully, and describe the Dems tactics as un-American.
LOL "The Joker" of course.
You are correct. They have already judged Rove guilty and passed sentence.
What Pelosi won't admit though is that Rove wasn't the one who leaked her name. It was everyone else under the freaking sun who did....including her lying weasel of a husband.
Maybe Pelosi will call for her husband's head in her next statement?

BOB ROACH'S PLAN FOR CIRCUMVENTING A DEMOCRAT
Where did all these Democrats come from? They grow thicker and thicker and act more and more outrageously at each successive election.
Now yesterday they had the presumption to elect S. H. Dwinelle to the Judgeship of the Fifteenth District Court, and not content with this, they were depraved enough to elect four out of the six Justices of the Peace! Oh, 'Enery Villiam, where is thy blush! Oh, Timothy Hooligan, where is thy shame! It's out. Democrats haven't got any.
But Union men staid away from the election - they either did that or else they came to the election and voted Democratic tickets - I think it was the latter, though the Flag [a local paper] will doubtless say it was the former.
But these Democrats didn't stay away - you never catch a Democrat staying away from an election. The grand end and aim of his life is to vote or be voted for, and he accommodates to circumstances and does one just as cheerfully as he does the other. The Democracy of America left their native wilds in England and Connaught to come here and vote - and when a man, and especially a foreigner, who don't have any voting at home any more than an Arkansas man has ice-cream for dinner, comes three or four thousand miles to luxuriate in occasional voting, he isn't going to stay away from an election any more than the Arkansas man will leave the hotel table in "Orleans" until he has destroyed most of the ice cream.
The only man I ever knew who could counteract this passion on the part of Democrats for voting, was Robert Roach, carpenter of the steamer Aleck Scott, "plying to and from St. Louis to New Orleans and back," as her advertisement sometimes read. The Democrats generally came up as deck passengers from New Orleans, and the yellow fever used to snatch them right and left - eight or nine a day for the first six or eight hundred miles; consequently Roach would have a lot on hand to "plant" every time the boat landed to wood - 'plant' was Roach's word.
One day as Roach was superintending a burial the Captain came up and said: 'God bless my soul, Roach, what do you mean by shoving a corpse into a hole in the hill-side in this barbarous way, face down and its feet sticking out?' 'I always plant them foreign Democrats in that manner, sir, because, damn their souls, if you plant 'em any other way they'll dig out and vote the first time there's an election - but look at that fellow, now - you put 'em in head first and face down and the more they dig the deeper they'll go into the hill.'
In my opinion, if we do not get Roach to superintend our cemeteries, enough Democrats will dig out at the next election to carry their entire ticket. It begins to look that way.
They are sinking further and further into an abyss. They are wishing this to be their 'Watergate'.
Exactly. She's saying he did something that the facts we have available clearly don't show that he did.
Rove has don't nothing on the level of the crap that she says on a regular basis.
that is one I had not run across before.
