White House Should Suspend Deputy Chief of Staff's Security Clearance Information While Investigation is Pending, Until Plame Leak Is Resolved
In Light Of Time Reporter Matt Cooper's Confirmation That Rove Was a Source In the Leak of CIA Agent Valerie Plame's Identity, Schumer and Wilson Call For Suspension of Rove's Security Clearance
U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer and Ambassador Joseph Wilson will hold a press conference at 3:00pm TODAY, July 14, 2005 in the Mansfield Room of the U.S. Capitol to call for the suspension of White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove' security clearance until the investigation of the leak of CIA Agent Valerie Plame's identity is resolved.
Israel S. Klein Communications Director U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer
Does anyone outside the Beltway give a crap? No. Pure politics. Hurting Dems more every day. Fools.
I stand with 63 million Americans who'd like Chucky Schumer to go back to Afghanistan and join his Taliban brothers.
Does anyone outside the Beltway give a crap? No. Pure politics. Hurting Dems more every day. Fools.
They are wasting their collective breath. And apparently only the MSM gives a **** about this anyway.
yawn! Will Rowdy Roddy Wilson finally admit he outed his own wife?
I'm gonna LMAO if Wilson and his nepotic wife are "the focus" of the Grand Jury investigation! There will be a lot of RED faces in BLUE states!...........
(If what I just wrote makes you sad or angry,
Chuck Schumer = the kid in third grade who always demanded the teacher's attention.
(Denny Crane: "Sometimes you can only look for answers from God and failing that... and Fox News".)
If anyone every needed proof that Mr. Rove is doing a superb job, this is it. Messrs. Schumer and Wilson are two of the biggest boobs DC has produced in decades.
Phew. Feel better now...but they're still boobs!
The "press conference" Chuck Schumer addresses the media:
didn't we read that moveon.org was initiating a protest outside the Capitol today?
Nominate Rove to the Supreme Court
And his constituents are fine with this trash?
he sounds more and more like teddy.
Isn't that the truth?
That would be one of the greatest moves in history!
Unfortunately GWB doesn't have whatever it takes to do something of that nature.
Were I to express my opinion of Joe Wilson, I would certainly be suspended. However, I'm thinking of fertilizer derived from chickes and bulls and the orifice from which they are expelled. He is prostituting himself outrageously in the hope that he will receive a great job as payola from what he hopes will be the 2008 Democratic presidential administration.
gotta get on this fast...show is going to start at 3 p.m., Joe and Chucky are going after Karl...
Maybe Wilson and Schumer should ask a convicted child molester to join them, just to add a modicom of gravitas and integrity to the Press Conference.
"Does anyone outside the Beltway give a crap?"
I don't think so. Most people who find out about it will tune it out as the same old annoying inside-the-beltway bitching/arguing/bickering/noise. That's the perception, I believe. Only political junkies are paying attention to this; the rest will say, "Rove....ok now who is that again?"
Is that a recent photo of Henry Waxman?
No, at this point in time, that would be stupid and Our President is not stupid. Are you a cratbrat?
That is a troublsome question. Schumer, Durbin, Kennedy, Kerry. Demonstrable idiots, damaging to America. Always out there making fools of themselves. Yet the voters keep sending them back. I don't get it.
This is a non story. Yawn.
Just damn!! Not a word about convict Berger though, huh?
I'd love to see Karl Rove, sitting in a chair near the lectern for Chucky and Wilson, laughing his ass off throughout their entire press conference.
I'd be very surprised if he had sufficient clearance to know the secret identities of covert agents. That seems extraordinarily unlikely.
How dare you insult a nice hideous pig mask by comparing it to something so loathesome and evil as Henry Waxman? Geez.
The non partisan Joe Wilson lectured before the war against removing Saddam.
The title of his lecture was( he's since changed it ):
" Iraq, Disarmament or Conquest, The Case Against Regime Change."
His January 22, 2003 lecture delivered at UCSB is on tape and used to be available from the Humanities Center .
I found these quotes from billhobbs.com who downloaded the speech from a webpage, that has since purged the speech.
Hobbs thinks Wilson sounds anti semitic.
" Ever since the first Gulf War] there has been a small cabal of zealots in Washington who have been driving an agenda designed to overthrow Saddam Hussein, not because he has weapons of mass destruction,
not because he may or may not be linked to terrorism,
but because they want to establish a beachhead in the Arab world from which to work to change the political map of the Arab world and
essentially ensure Israel 75 more years of security by enfeebling the Arab governments that are arrayed against it."
" We need to remember in all of this that Iraq did not build weapons of mass destruction because the United States was an enemy -
Iraq built weapons of mass destruction because it was surrounded by a nuclear armed Israel.. "
" Saddam or no Saddam, there is still going to be a desire amongst the national security apparatus to have weapons that allow a relatively small population to defend itself against larger rapacious neighbors and aggressive neighbors."
Hobbs says Wilson is calling Israel rapacious and aggressive.
Perhaps Chuck Schumer will be asked to comment on Wilson's anti war, anti Israel lecture series.
"The intercept, apparently of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's telephone conversations, made possible the capture of the Arab terrorists who had hijacked the cruise ship Achille Lauro and murdered American citizens," the paper said, adding, "The reports cost the life of at least one Egyptian operative involved in the operation."
In July 1987, the Washington Times reported that Leahy leaked secret information about a 1986 covert operation planned by the Reagan administration to topple Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi.
"I thought [the operation] was probably the most ridiculous thing I had seen, and also the most irresponsible," the then-leading Intelligence Committee Democrat allegedly said of the secret plan.
Unidentified U.S. intelligence officials told the Times that Leahy, along with Republican panel chairman Sen. Dave Durenberger, communicated a written threat to expose the operation directly to then-CIA Director William Casey.
Weeks later, news of the secret plan turned up in the Washington Post, causing it to be aborted.
Leahy vehemently denied he talked to the press about any of the Reagan administration's covert operations, saying, "I never have, and I'm not going to start now."
But just a year later, as the Senate was preparing to hold hearings on the Iran-Contra scandal, the Vermont senator had to resign his Intelligence Committee post after he was caught leaking secret information to a reporter.
The ranking Intelligence Committee Democrat decided to let an NBC reporter comb through the committee's confidential draft report on the scandal. The network aired a report based on the inside information on Jan. 11, 1987.
After a six-month internal investigation, Leahy "voluntarily" stepped down from his committee post, releasing a statement calling his resignation "a suitable way to express ... anger and regret" over his lapse.
Leahy's anger, he said, was at himself, "for carelessly allowing the press person to examine the unclassified draft and to be alone with it."
The Vermont Democrat's Iran-Contra leak was considered to be one of the most serious breaches of secrecy in the committee's 10-year history.
After Leahy's resignation, the Senate Intelligence Committee decided to restrict access to committee documents to a security-enhanced meeting room."
Sen Leahy is still a US Senator with a security clearance.
The hypocrisy of the Democrats on this , especially considering their total lack of hysteria re. Sandy Berger and Joe Wilson himself, is breathtaking.
OMG! That guy on the left...You just outed Orlando Bloom!
Little Chuckie stands with anyone on any issue if its against Bush.
He has as much credibility as the Cardiff Giant or flying saucers.
I still think Chuckie is a three dollar bill.
Chuckie is such a putz.
Why does Drudge even post this as news?
I WANT TO SEE THEM EAT THEIR WORDS, WHEN ALL THIS B.S. IS FINALLY CLEARED UP.
Sounds like a good plan to me.
Journalism needs to washout the feces stains, the stench is embarrassing the Nation.
He has clearance
Yeah, right after Sandy Berger's security clearance is rescinded...
LOL! Didn't he convert to Buddism?
It is their favorite tactic...if your candidate has a military record that might be a problem, create a perception of a problem for the other guy's military record and get out on the attack first.
"SCHUMER STANDS WITH AMBASSADOR JOE WILSON TO ASK FOR SUSPENSION OF ROVE'S SECURITY CLEARANCE"
This is so over the top and transparent that it is pathetic. Does Schmuck Chewer seriously think the American people are worried that Rove is going to start outing CIA officials? The Rat strategy is if you jump up and down and scream about some obviously phoney issue, people will be fooled into thinking it must be true and important. It may work on 5% of voters, but 40% will think you are nuts. The rest don't give a damn.
A former ambassador, Wilson is well known (not) for his awesome grasp of geography, isn't he? Not the sharpest knife in the drawer, huh...
