Let's see Bush pardon him after he leaked classified information that endangered the lives of scores of CIA assets around the world and endangered the war on terror. And let's see Bush pardon him after all the quotes we're going to drag up from GOP members of Congress about the high crime it is to perjure oneself.
Now that Time Inc. has turned over documents to federal court, presumably revealing who its reporter, Matt Cooper, identified as his source in the Valerie Plame/CIA case, speculation runs rampant on the name of that source, and what might happen to him or her. Tonight, on the syndicated McLaughlin Group political talk show, Lawrence O'Donnell, senior MSNBC political analyst, claimed to know that name--and it is, according to him, top White House mastermind Karl Rove....Kind of makes lying about a blowjob look downright quaint.
Other panelists then joined in discussing whether, if true, this would suggest a perjury rap for Rove, if he told the grand jury he did not leak to Cooper.
And if it's Karl, I want to know who else in the White House knew. This isn't just perjury, it's obstruction of justice on behalf of the liar and anyone else who knew he lied.
