    From what I have read, he only admits to speaking to the reporter. I wonder how many dems talked to the same reporter?? Nothing is confirmed, it is just the dems trying to make something out of this...

    This morning they were saying it is likely it was the reporter herself who outed Plame and that is why she won't release her source...

    Rove leaked information and lied about it, thus committing perjury. When Clinton did this, the rabid dogs lined up to present articles of impeachment.
    The difference is that Rove is not President of the United States. He has no right to any sort of executive privilege. Of course the Dems are lining up to feast on his corpse. That is how politics works. You find someone to roast and invite all the heavy hitters you can find.
    Bush can save face by admitting that Rove committed a criminal act. But he will not do it, because he has nothing to gain from it. Bush will never be impeached in a GOP controlled Congress. If he keeps up the charade, it will hurt the GOP chances in 2006 and 2008. Not that Bush cares, of course.

    Here's what I want to know...

    Let's just assume, for argument's sake, that Karl Rove is the one that divulged the name. Mr. Rove is a political consultant and campaign adviser. Therefore, why would he know her role in the CIA? Does he have the clearance to know such information? I doubt it. That kind of info is only dealt out on a "need to know basis". So who told him? I'll tell you who... nobody. Her role, from what I am reading on blogs and hearing discussed on talk radio, was NOT that secret. She had been outed a long time ago and just about everybody in Washington knew that Joseph Wilson's wife worked for the CIA and what her job was. I guarantee you if all Washington knew that, every other spy agency in the world also knew it.

    He does have the clearance...and he being the Presidents closest advisor... I am sure he is privvy to that info...that aside he has become a target and should step down to avoid any further controversy...just my opinion!

    Just because one has the clearance, that does not mean they have access. When I was in I had a TSSBI but there often were documents only rated "Secret" that I still could not view because I didn't need to know. I know he has to have at least a TSSBI with Presidential Clearance because he works in the White House. That is a given. But again, that doesn't mean he can saunter down to CIA HQ and see whatever info he wants.
