Boot them from the Senate and put them in prison!

Hard Time! Not Gitmo.

Before the investigation is complete they should step down from their positions

The seriousness of the charges alone demand as much!

In most police departments, an officer accused of doing anything wrong, is put on leave until the investigation is over. I guess Senators are above all this.

I meant absolutely nothing by using Howdy Doody except that the thing was phoney from beginning to end.

Rove got Kerry to reveal a covert agent's name during the Bolton nomination too.

That Rove is sooo powerful.

In an interview the other day, I think I remember Bubba referring to Rove as "very clever".

If this weren't Newsmax I'd be happier about it.

Same here. I emailed Monica and asked for her reaction to the story. If she replies I'll post it here.

I caught the tail end of the Democrat session about the Rove story on C-SPAN an hour or so ago, and it was one for the books. The oh-so-concerned Dems babbling on about the White House being "hypocritical" was almost too much to take.

So I guess they will be having a hearing on THIS subject soon, hmmmm?

NOT.......


Not is right. This is the first I've heard of it.

"Those wimpy Republicans better do something about the fifth column Democrats. Durbin releases a false FBI memo the sole purpose of which is to undermine the war and our troops!

Now he's releasing classified secrets? No, It must be Rove."

I bet we now get Bolton confirmed very quickly.

they finally are, YES!

"Faster than you can say ''ex post facto law.'' the majority leapt into action. Cherry-cheeked assassin, Mitch McConnell then asked that the Frist Amendment (#1223) be read:


"Any federal officeholder who makes references to a classified Federal Bureau of Investigation report on the floor of the United States Senate, or any federal officeholder that makes a statement based on a FBI agent's comments which is used as propaganda by terrorist organizations thereby putting our servicemen and women at risk, shall not be permitted access to such information or to hold a security clearance for access to such information."



Childish though this Durbin-for-Rove tit-for-tat may seem, it marked a rare defiance by Republicans in the face of the liberal mud-slinging machine. Right wing supporters have clearly longed for some red meat from their senate leaders and have generally come up hungry. Not this time. Even the usually staid Pat Roberts, summing up the facts of the case, got worked up:"

If this weren't Newsmax I'd be happier about it. NewsMax always misinterprets articles and press releases and publishes them as inflammatory news articles.

I happened to catch this bit on MSNBC. I don't usually watch Monica because I can't stand Ron Reagan, but as I recall it, NewsMax is exact in their quoting of Jed Bannin. I nearly fell off of the chair.

Now, none of us can tell if Babbin knows what he is talking about, but we can hope.

I might try to dig up the Congressional Record on this to see just how much info the RATs gave up. If they used a code name, they're in deep doo-doo.

It would be of special interest to see when the probe began..... Pre Rove rant?

I'v maintained that the Rove controversy was pre emptive. Now I know why.

I would argue this thread might indicate otherwise. Always is an incorect description because in the present some action appears to be in process.

Rats can whale away at windmills but if Pubbies draw blood it will be a great victory even if not publicized by the MSM.

The next time the Rats open their mouths about Rove, the Republicans had better use this information.

I think the entire SP investigation involves a CIA leak to Judy Miller. There could be quite a little CIA "leak" infrastructure involved here, reaching as far as the Senate. I don't think Porter Goss will let this one rest.

I saw this show on MSNBC on Wed or Thurs night. Tried to wait for transcripts, but Coast to Coast w/ Monica Crowley and Ron Reagan didn't have a transcript. Jeb Babbin was on and he was trying to tell the panel about the Justice Dept. looking into these three (Rockefeller, Dubin, Wyland??) about them leaking the spy satellite info. The panel just let it go by !!! They were really into ripping Rove and ignored this ! Karen

I don't have time now, but we do have our own posts on FR about this. I found a few of them. I think one came from the NYT. I think I just searched LEAK, and found them.

NewsMax is exact in their quoting of Jed Bannin.

That's good news. I say this because I have very often gotten my hopes up with NewsMax reports, and it has always turned out that they have creatively patched together bits of things that people have said, or that they are simply publishing their opinion as the factual headline.

I know that the MSM does this all the time, but liberals are too stupid to know or care anyway.

Sounds positive. I keep having this little flicker of hope that there have been some investigations quietly going on in the background.

To me - granted, knowing nothing about this from the inside- it sounds as though the CIA was a true nest of vipers that was virtually hypnotized by its political connections to the Clinton regime, and which valued its political bias more than anything else, including national security.

Monica also asked him about Leahy's role in leaking the details of OBL's satt phone being tapped. I had read this a few years ago in a book and I could never find out who leaked it. Way to go liberal scum.

This is a million times worse. Actually it can't be expressed mathematically, since Rove did NOTHING wrong! You must've forgotten your sarcasm attachment.

Judith Miller.... Washington Post!

She was doing a story about ALL the CIA leaks and has something on Durbin and Kerry. She sure wouldn't stay in jail for Rove.

By jove, I think you've got something there! I think Tenet is mixed up in this leaking mess, too.

I may be wrong, but it seems that I heard a few weeks ago that some Senators might be in trouble for also identifying a plane that was used to fly into Afghanistan....

It was a covert CIA plane, but it seems like I heard that some dems "outed" it as a CIA plane, instead of a "normal" troop plane...

Do you remember anything about that?

I did a cursory look at the FR archives, and I saw one article from March about "plane spotters" posting pics of CIA undercover planes, supposedly not knowing that, but pics on the internet endanger mission...

THIS was close, but I seem to remember that like this case, a Senator or someone was discussing this in public...

Oh, well, the old brain cells are wearing out...
