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.
