Skip to comments.Lawyer: Five Witnesses Say Joe Wilson Outed Valerie Plame
Posted on 05/08/2006 11:49:56 AM PDT by yoe
In a development that got no media play over the weekend, Lewis 'Scooter' Libby's defense lawyer announced on Friday that he has located five witnesses who will testify that Joe Wilson outed his wife Valerie Plame as a CIA employee before Robert Novak did so in his July 2003 column.
According to the NationalReviewOnline's Byron York, Libby's lawyer Ted Wells told the court that his witnesses "will say under oath that Mr. Wilson told them his wife worked for the CIA."
Wells said that he expects Leakgate Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald to call Wilson to testify in a bid to salvage his case.
Reacting to the news on Friday, Wilson declined to deny the allegation, suggesting instead that it no longer mattered who first outed his wife.
"The last I heard, this is case is about allegations Mr. Libby lied, perjured himself before the FBI, special prosecutor and grand jury and obstructed justice," he told CNN in a statement. "None of those charges of which he's been indicted has anything to do with me."
What book deal? ...what movie deal? It's classified!
.... and don't miss some of the other developments that add to the picture of the VIPS - CIP - Joe Wilson cabal to smear the Bush administration and undermine US national security:
It's too bad that the Bush look alike didn't mention this at the correspondent's dinner huh?
Joe's missing the point: It could also be about whether Wilson committed perjury.

But I thought many lives were put in danger by this vicious political attack, Joe. That couldnt have been ridiculous hyperbole, could it?
And we also know (via recent breathless media pronouncements) that Americas entire effort to monitor Irans nukes completely fell apart after Valeries cover was blown? Surely the person who did that should rot in jail forever, right Joe?
Boy, I sure hope we fry that scumbag if we ever get our hands on him.
Lol, but the appropriate response is: "I'm wearing Armani".
Sorry, all, there's a duplicate thread on the "American Thinker" article - I think we should all try to use this one for new comments:
I can't wait for the poo to hit the fan. Me thinks Larry Johnson and Ray McGovern better be tying up the loose ends cause they are part of the leak.
This guy is as low as a child molester. He has set events in motion that he is now trying to extricate himself from..
At least, unlike Helen 'Battleaxe' Thomas and other loony leftys, Valerie Plame is hot.
But there's the frustration. Prosecutors never bring charges against the alleged victims, guilty though they may be.
This smarmy character actually disclosed his wife's name. I just won a bet.
The fact that he will not deny this is truly something. He IS right that the charge against Libby is perjury, not "outing" his wife, but considering the statements IN WRITING that he has made, this failure to go on the record denying this is truly something.
I think a jury will find it difficult to convict if the original charges of "outing" an agent turns out to be the husband himself!
"It no longer matters who first outed my wife, I'm a millionaire."
Has he ditched the tatty old Jag for something more befitting his "station"?
JOE.... whispering "my wife is a CIA operative " all over town to many many people, for a good long time just to make yourself seem more important is quite lame... UGH and ILLEGAL...
Interesting, Wilson saying that it doesn't matter who outed his wife.
"Reacting to the news on Friday, Wilson declined to deny the allegation, suggesting instead that it no longer mattered who first outed his wife."
There can only be one reason he is changing his tune about his poor outed wife, he has been identified as the outer/bragger, drunk/ dope head who outed his wife in his MSM coordinated attempted coup attempt of our president.
haven't Plames' fifteen minutes run out yet?
gezzzzz, Plame was a CIA desk jockey for Pete's sakes...
she was about as "covert" as my cat. LMAO
This investigation is dead in the water. Fitz will be looking for the door now. His future career as Attorney General in a Geena Davis Administration has been cruelly smothered in its crib.
Will anyone be bringing charges against Plame and Wilson for the trouble they've caused over the last couple of years? For the fake Niger investigation? For the incessant "Bush lied" charges? For the open politicization at CIA? For the attempt to bring down a sitting president in time of war?
This is a different thread with Wilson now saying it doesn't matter who outed his wife.
We certainly live in interesting times.
She is a hottie though. Nice pearly whites. No pearl necklace?
So you think her covert identity is different from her overt disguise? ... She and her hubby are freakin' liberal loons and the CIA is probably infested with such fools and that's why they can't git'R'Done.
Ding dong the witch is dead the witch is dead...By the time Hayden takes office (and make no mistake - he will), Queen Bee would have spilled all her honey and the then comes the slaughter of the rest of the hive (sorry - love the analogy).
Wilson declined to deny the allegation, suggesting instead that IT NO LONGER MATTERED WHO FIRST OUTED HIS WIFE.
The only people it ever mattered to was the
DEM Media! Who really cared what her career
job was before she quit her job and had twins?
The two occupations were years apart.
She looks "high maintenance"...must have to have root jobs weekly.
It mattered plenty to Joe-liar earlier in his media career as to who had outted his wife. In fact, that was all hew cared about for a while. Funny he is still not obsessed with that. Much like OJ-- no longer obsessed with trying to find the real.
Thanks for the ping.
I like this little extra on the same blog page:
"UPDATE: Speaking of "tension", I've sent a bottle of "chill out" to the Neurotics over at National Review. Damn, this group has become the Hardy-Har-Hars of conservatism."
I love MacRanger too, he just has a way of putting things. And he is an x military intel guy. These are the type of guys we've got in our military. They're just way too GREAT...I love 'em.
That's what bj klintoon said.
Hmmm, seems as though that, if this is true, Mr. Wilson is in the same boat as Mr. Libby, no?
After the Wilson/Plames are arrested, tried and convicted, I believe there is a LAW that says yiou can't make money on a book deal about what you did unlawfully. She better write fast!!
What a big web they have woven,
These folks in the Democrat coven.
They'll lie and impugn
From midnight til noon
When the sun burns them up like an oven.
The spy who kept it out of the cold.
And little ole' Val has had problems with hubby joe...wonder when she'll start stepping out on him.
But I didn't know your cat was a covert CIA operative! So you just outed your cat.
Hee-hee...Wilson's gone from demanding the leaker be "Frpgmarched" out of the Whitehouse, to "It doesn't matter".
The Dems certainly got a lot of mileage out of this conspiracy. Bush should have crushed him from the git-go.
