Did Harriet cooperate like Rove and Libby?

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Scottie tells us that Harriet was ordered to cooperate with the special prosecutor, like everyone else:

Q Yes, Scott, you said that the President has directed the White House to cooperate fully with the investigation. So can you tell us whether Harriet Miers, in her connection with the White House, has been involved in any way with the leak investigation, or whether she's testified before the Fitzgerald grand jury?

MR. McCLELLAN: She has been -- carried out the direction of the President, just like the rest of us here, to cooperate fully with the special prosecutor. She has been White House Counsel during part of the time that this investigation has been ongoing. I'm not going to comment on the investigation, though, beyond that.
We need a better answer. I guess it all depends on what the definition of "cooperation" is. If you get hauled back time after time, like Rove and Libby because you left out salient info, are you cooperating? And, is that how Harriett cooperated?

See, most prosecutors consider telling the truth to be a factor in cooperating. Not all the rest of you there cooperated by telling the truth, Scottie. Is that good enough for the President?
