Washington D.C. (AHN) - Washington D.C. (AHN) - Time magazine reporter Matthew reveals top White House advisor Karl Rove is one of the sources of a CIA leak. The admission comes during a grand jury hearing on Wednesday.
The special prosecutor involved in the leak of a covert CIA Agent, has told the lawyer of Karl Rove, in an interview with the National Review, that the White House Advisor is "not the target of the investigation."
"'Target' is something we all understand, a very alarming term," Rove attorney, Robert Luskin, said.
Luskin said in the interview that Rove has been asked by prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald specifically, "not to speak publically about the on-going investigation."
It seems to merely be confirming the things discussed in the weekend stories. I guess Rove was technically a source because he talked about it. So this just seems like a routine report about an event everyone knew was about to happen.
Hello, aren't grand jury proceedings supposed to be secret?
Technically, but when you're desperate to have one of the most reviled members of the opposition go down in flames, just making s**t up is OK.
" Hello, aren't grand jury proceedings supposed to be secret?"
Not when the democrates and L/MSM are involved. Hey they have rights to ya know.
"The Wilson/Plame affair is not about obstruction of justice or perjury [read: this is more serious than anything Bill Clinton ever did -- even though he didn't do those things]. This about the War. And how Bush lied in order to gt us into a bad war. And how that is Rove's fault."
Shorr then went on to recite a list of facts:
Wilson was a top Africa Expert.
He was sent to Niger to scope out the yellowcake situation.
He traveled throughout Niger, talking with EVERYBODY of importance.
Wilson verified that there was no yellowcake/Iraqi connection.
Subsequent intelligence reports from Italy and Britain have been proven to be forgeries and/or bald-faced lies.
Bush ignored the wisdom of Wilson, latched on to the bogus intelligence material and LIED to the American people, using those infamous 16 words.
All this is documented fact. And the Wilson affair will be the ultimate doom of the Bush presidency.
I laughed and laughed. The Democrats are going "All In" on this one.
Only for prosecutors. Witnesses are not bound by rules of secrecy and are free to discuss their own testimony with anyone, including the press.
She left out he sat in the hotel all day long and drank green tea. :)
FGS, they are insane.
Here you go! A complete party package.
Shorr is one lefty hack for SURE!
do like the way you said it better than what I was Gonna--
so like you so aptly said put the popcorn on I like my with lotsa butter and fixe dlike at them fancy movie houses -with a big cold soda pop to wash it down.
I prefer the term "balls-deep"....;^)
It's gonna be a bad day on the midway when Rove et.al. finally kick the stool out from under them and the frantic, desperate twisting begins.
How does Time know what was testified to in a grand jury session that was held today?
The RATS are so full of venom that they forgot that FOLK DON'T GIVE A SH** DURING THE SUMMER TIME!! Hello, stupid dirty RATS, the WHOLE USA population are on vacation and all this dirt ain't gonna fly!! Folk are too busy planning their get away from THEM! I for one hit the road tomorrow for a much needed RR! WHEN will the RATS learn...never I hope!!
I'm interesting in finding out who Judith Miller is protecting and if the NY Times is paying her hush money to keep quiet and serve her jail time quietly.
NY Times is a public company and if they are paying their reporter hush money, it would be a violation of Sarbanes-Oxley. Looks like it's time to call investor relations.
To put it more bluntly, the next time the Times wants to claim they have a source in a Republican administration saying this or that...everyone would laugh at the notion.
If Rove did leak...the source was ratted out to Plame's husband immediately ("Rove...frog marched"...how would he know that it was Rove?)
Oh yeah. I have to believe this is going to be more entertaining than just about anything you see at the movie theater this summer. ;)
Lets break this down. Rove tells Cooper off the record to be careful with the Wilson story because its BS. He says Wilson wasn't sent by Cheney or any admin official but "his wife who apparently works for the CIA" got him the job.
Cooper decides that the story isn't "Wilsons yellow cake claims may be false" but " Administration slashes and burns Wilson, says CIA wife got him the job."
Rove told one reporter confidentially that a partisan liar Wilson was never sent by the admin but his CIA wife got him the gig. Cooper outs the wife by blaring it in Time and of course the distraught couple then pose for the cameras of Vanity Fair, fearful of course, that Valarie might be noticed.
As a side note, CNN ran a story about this yesterday and showed the picture of Wilson and Plame in the car but blurred out Plames face. Unfreakinbelievable.
That freakin Shorr is about the most pompous sumbitch I've heard, and that is saying something because he sure has a lot of competition.
Let's place bets on who the "target" is! Fifty bucks says it's Wilson himself! But then it could be Chris Lehane..or even - Hillary!?
This is going to be fun when all is said and done - fun and very satisfying to see it all explode back in their faces! The MSM have been making such asses of themselves...and they don't even have the story right is why it's so funny.
This is the most ridiculous "scandal" I've ever seen. The media is covering this like 9.11. If they gave illegal immigation 1% of the coverage they're giving this, maybe something would change. Sometimes, I wonder how long this country will survive.
No they did not! They did that? Seriously? Really? Oh my God!! ROTFLMAO!!! Bwwwaahahaha!! Unfreakinbelievable is right!
Thank you for a good laugh!! As I said in my earlier post - the MSM are making utter fools of themselves with this!
I read an greatly larger version of this a couple of days ago. Verbatim. In fact, the only words added are, "The admission comes during a grand jury hearing on Wednesday." (Notice the weasely way that sentence is phrased?)
I suspect that this pathetic entry is the result of somebody trying to start a "blog". Forget about it.
Have you ever noticed that Daniel Shorr sounds almost exactly like Barney Frank? Have you ever seen a picture of both of them together? Could they be the same person?
I did not see it myself, but my brother told me three days ago while we were discussing how crazy the press is going over this. My response and yours was almost identical.
