    WASHINGTON (CNN) – President Bush has blocked the release of Vice President Dick Cheney's interview with investigators probing the leak of a CIA agent's identity, invoking executive privilege Wednesday to keep that document and others under wraps

    This deserves two threads.

    What is Cheney hiding?

    No one can be sure, but I bet RGS thinks he's just doing it to fuck with all you liberals.

    He isn't hiding anything. But do create mountains out of mole hills.

    We already KNOW who gave up the name in the Plame case if that is what this is all about. That guy was never charged with anything.

    The man that "leaked" the name was Armitage as I recall. And he had no connection to Cheney at all. The Special Prosecutor knew this within 2 months of starting his "investigation". Armitage is or was a low level player and not connected to any big fish. Thus the ILLEGAL 2 year setting up of Libby for Perjury. Read the law. It is ILLEGAL to run an investigation for the PURPOSE of trapping someone with Perjury. Either they did or did not commit the crime, you can NOT spend two years setting them up for the charge.

    The prosecutor wanted Cheney even though there was not one SHRED of evidence he had anything to do with it at all. He trapped Libby for the purpose of getting him to make a claim against Cheney. Libby did not do so. And I doubt it was so he could hope for a Pardon from Bush.

    The prosecutor even admitted in Court he wanted Cheney, he kept claiming Cheney was guilty of something but since Libby wouldn't talk he had no evidence.... Wait, NO EVIDENCE? Yet Cheney is Guilty? Ohh and those FBI files WERE at the beck and call of the Prosecutor.
