Lawyer: Five Witnesses Say Joe Wilson Outed Valerie Plame
News Max ^ | May 8, 2006 | Carl Limbacher & Staff

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."

WTF, this is what he was claiming the whole thing was about in the first place and he's continued with this absurd claim.

Yes, you see, this all depends upon what your definition of "is" is.

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 couldn’t have been ridiculous hyperbole, could it?

And we also know (via recent breathless media pronouncements) that America’s entire effort to monitor Iran’s nukes completely fell apart after Valerie’s “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.

But there's the frustration. Prosecutors never bring charges against the alleged victims, guilty though they may be.

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!

Lawyer: Five Witnesses Say Joe Wilson Outed Valerie Plame

Valerie: "Did you notice all the machine gun bullets in my car when I got home today?"

Joe: "Why, no, Dear, I wonder how that could have happened?

Valerie: (hands on hips) "Did you out my secret identity in the CIA again, Joe?"

Joe: (Slaps head) "Oh, yes, I did. Sorry!"

Postman (sticks head in open door) "Registered letter for secret agent Valerie Plame! Sign here, please!"

Well now this is a change in the usual lies by Wilson:

"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.

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?

The only people it ever mattered to was the

job was before she quit her job and had twins?
The two occupations were years apart.

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.

The Dems certainly got a lot of mileage out of this conspiracy. Bush should have crushed him from the git-go.
