Did Special Prosecutor Fitzgerald Lie?
INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY ^ | 8/29/06 | Editorial

Posted on 08/29/2006 5:53:58 PM PDT by Laverne

Plamegate: Patrick Fitzgerald's three-year manhunt to track down who blew Valerie Plame's CIA "cover" has been exposed as a costly sham. He apparently knew all along that his man was not Scooter Libby. ...

But it's hard to see anything but politics as the motivation for Fitzgerald's handling of the Plame affair. The facts indicate that Fitzgerald knew early on that the original leaker was State Department official Richard Armitage. So why did Fitzgerald let a cloud hang over White House adviser Karl Rove's head for so long? And why is Fitzgerald continuing to hound Libby, the former vice presidential chief of staff?

Not only did Fitzy know, but I would expect most of the media knew....yet they perpetuated their false story all along. Once again, proving the media is nothing but scum. This story is making me sicker and sicker by the day. Where is the judge in this case? This thing should be dismissed, apologies should be issued, Fitzy should be fired, and Tony Snow should make a big stink in an upcoming press conference. President should also weigh in at some point as well, imho. What a waste of tax payer money, what a waste of good people's reputations, what a waste all around.

Yes Fitzgerald lied. He should be disbarred on ethics violations and never allowed within 100 yards of a courtroom again.

Andrew McCarthy's continued support for Fitzy should raise some eye brows too. I for one will never trust another thing McCarthy reports on.

When you have Schmucky Schumer praise the prosecutor as a prosecutor's prosecutor, you should know that the guy is a piece of sh*t and is a rat with an agenda.

Tony is on vacation still...and of course this is still breaking news (although you haven't heard much about it with the Katrina and Ernesto and Karr-not-the-killer stories). Perhaps later this week it will get some air time. At least I hope so.

If this administration had any balls, Fitzy should be charged with malfeasance and disbarred.

I don't know if it would do any good but the Republicans should haul is sorry A$$ before the judiciary committee for some interrogation. I also hope that the Libby trial happens. This will be a great chance to expose everyone including the MSM. Butter and popcorn please.

I've said it from day one that Anal Fitzgerald always had that guilty/"I'm hiding something" look and feel during his news conferences. It was so obvious.

Bush appointed Fitz in the first place? I sure wish he'd forget trying to play the "non-partisan" game because he's the only one at that table! It's time to play TRUTH AND JUSTICE!

Bush did not appoint Fitz. When Ashcroft step aside, which was the right thing to do, Comey the assistant AG appointed him. Well, Comey has long been thought to have an agenda and the truth was not one of them.

"...where does one go to when America is lost??"

To your local government. Volunteer for the planning commission. Local health board. Run for village council. Start taking over. Build your base.

The head (federal government) cannot operate without the body (local government.)

"sham?"
I won't tell ya "I told ya so."

Fitzgerald spent the last three years "investingating" what any beat cop in America could have determined in a day.
Valerie Plame was not a covered CIA covert agent.
Valerie Plame was a CIA desk jockey, nothing more.

And Fitzgerald owes the Federal government & the American taxpayers his salary & expenses for the past three years for this sham!

"Not only did Fitzy know, but I would expect most of the media knew....yet they perpetuated their false story all along. "

Just like they did during Starr's investigation when his office was investigated for leaking to the press- they knew the white House was the source of their leaks yet they wrote story after story on U.S. District Judge Norma Holloway Johnson's investigation of his office for the leaks.

http://www.freerepublic.com/forum/a39655c453722.htm
"Mr. Starr and his staff were the targets of a blistering public assault by White House lawyers and Mr. Clinton's personal attorney, David E. Kendall. He first raised the issue of media leaks in February 1998 and later persuaded the court to investigate the matter.
Mr. Kendall accused Mr. Starr of illegally leaking grand jury information on the president's liaison with Miss Lewinsky. In a 15-page letter to Mr. Starr released by the White House, Mr. Kendall said he intended to "seek judicial relief from these tactics, including contempt sanctions."

Members of the media make money and get promoted for doing this.
Pete yost recieved a promotion at AP after using a democrat judge's leak to print that Starr was considering empaneling a new grand jury- just before Al Gore accepted the democrat nomination... and letting Starr get blamed for the leak.
http://www.freerepublic.com/forum/a399f998612b5.htm

Lying for the Dems is just good business in our corrupt media.

If you think this was dirty politics, wait and see what happens should the Dems manage a majority in the House. The articles of impeachment are already written and the truth has nothing to do with anything.

I just can't believe, wait what am I saying, of course I can believe that each one of these libs will walk....meantime, everytime Libby's name is mentioned by the drive by rats, they will say: ...."you remember he was accused of the Valerie Plame covert case"....

Damage is done to the Republicans....and NOTHING is done to these lieing, sleazy, rat crap, slimy things that are suppost to be democRATS....

I hope, ohhhhh how I hope they lose so bad this November....we have got to get the word out on all this so the people will know....

I would like to know what Comey's motive was and if the AG endorsed his choice. Initially I thought that Ashcroft stepped aside out of an abundance of caution. If he knew that there was nothing to it, he probably thought it best that the news be independently delivered. Now I wonder about everyone in the chain of events, including Ashcroft.

I am one of the freepers here that believes the republicans have some surprises coming before the elections with the indicting and snaring of donks in several different leak investigations, and of course Jefferson's legal woes. The Jefferson indictments I believe will be small potatos compared to the snaring of other donks.

There is a reason Rockefeller has been silent since before General Hayden's CIA confirmation, and the back surgery story is a ruse.
