The Moderate Voice - Issues Swirl Around Journalist's Jailing Over Source Secrecy

The Seattle-Post Intelligencer calls for a federal shield law and adds:
Another strange twist in this story is that the journalist who first "outed" Plame in his column, conservative commentator Robert Novak, apparently faces no jail time, no contempt charge, none of the pressure Hogan and federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald have placed on Cooper and Miller. Does Novak enjoy his own personal shield for being a White House toady?

After all, the presumed motive of the "two senior (Bush) administration officials" who exposed Plame to Novak and other journalists was to punish her husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson, who blew the whistle on President Bush's Niger-sold-uranium-to-Iraq part of the justification for going to war.


 

Journal Gazette | 07/06/2005 | Why isn�t Novak facing jail like other reporters?

Why isn’t Novak facing jail like other reporters?

By Carol Marin


CHICAGO – I just can’t figure it out. Why in the world is New York Times reporter Judith Miller headed to jail next week while my Sun-Times colleague Robert Novak is not? Why is a reporter who has written not one single word about a CIA operative about to be sent to the federal slammer while another reporter, the one who actually broke the story, isn’t in similar trouble?

Don’t get me wrong. I like and respect Bob Novak and don’t want to ever see him in an orange jump suit. Or think about him being strip-searched upon intake to federal prison. Then again, I never even met Judith Miller, and I don’t want that happening to her, either.

I called Novak in Washington to see if he could help me make sense of all this. “I can’t say anything,” he said, citing advice of counsel and the pending federal investigation.

This is a confusing story that centers on two critical and, in this case, competing values: the rule of law vs. the need of reporters to protect their sources. This is, in my opinion, also a story of an over-zealous federal prosecutor and a mostly timid press corps.

It was two years ago this month that former Ambassador Joseph Wilson tore into the Bush administration for going to war with Iraq, in part, on claims that Saddam Hussein was in hot pursuit of yellow cake uranium from Africa. Wilson said the administration’s claim was bogus because he was the guy the CIA sent to find out.

It was Novak who then wrote a column citing “two senior administration officials” who cast doubt on Wilson’s mission. They told Novak it was Wilson’s wife, a CIA operative named Valerie Plame, who sent him to Africa. The implication was that it was a meaningless junket.

Who were those “two senior administration officials” and what business did they have outing a supposedly “covert” CIA operative?

Enter Chicago’s own U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, who was appointed special prosecutor to find out. With a federal grand jury at his disposal, Fitzgerald began questioning not only administration officials but members of the press.

Now, two years later, the investigation is heading to a close. And for some reason that most of us have trouble understanding, two reporters other than Novak are risking jail. Though Matthew Cooper of Time magazine wrote about Plame after Novak did and Judith Miller of the New York Times never wrote about her at all, they refused to identify sources with whom they discussed the matter, and so a federal judge has ordered them to jail.

As I write this, Time magazine has caved and, against Cooper’s wishes, handed over his notes. Miller is now the lone holdout.

What no one understands, myself included, is Novak’s silence. Can he confirm he got a subpoena? “I can’t do that,” he told me. Can he explain the distinction between himself and these two reporters? “I can’t get into that,” he said.

For 41 years, Novak built his career and reputation by asking the toughest of questions. Now, the tables turned, he refuses to answer them. Isn’t that, I asked, grounds for criticism?

“No,” Novak told me, “because this is a criminal investigation.”

By any standard, it is a curious criminal investigation. Even the authors of the 1982 federal law that made it illegal to disclose the identity of a “covert” CIA operative have gone on record saying in this particular case the law does not appear to have been broken. Why? Because, according to federal legal experts Victoria Toensing and Bruce Sanford, Valerie Plame wasn’t working covertly, and the CIA, when contacted by Novak in advance of his story, never offered any objection to him publishing her name.

OK, if that’s true, what’s the law that’s been broken?

It boils down to this. Fitzgerald, in his zeal, has made reporters the criminals here and taken them to federal court to force them to disclose their sources. Though there are reporter shield laws in most states, there is no similar protection federally. By that standard, Cooper and Miller, ordered in court to give up their sources, break the law by not disclosing. With Time magazine buckling, Cooper may not go to jail, but it looks like Miller will.

Has there been a hue and cry about all of this from the media? Not enough. Not even we at the Sun-Times, in my view, have done enough to trumpet what I think should be our profound outrage at what’s going on. Novak is certainly entitled to protect his legal rights as he sees fit, but this is an issue that affects every working journalist.

But I fear it’s too late. The damage has been done, or as the Bush administration likes to say, “Mission Accomplished.” Our profession, which relies on anonymous sources for everything from Watergate to Hired Truck investigations, looks lame and weak and fearful. And any budding Deep Throats, these days, have far less reason to risk a trip to the parking garage.


 

Scribe Journal: Karl Rove and the Valerie Plame Leak - The National Ledger

Scribe Journal: Karl Rove and the Valerie Plame Leak - The National Ledger
Karl Rove and the Valerie Plame Leak
Newsweek's latest weekly feature of the Karl Rove and Valerie Plame story is up. This time it’s a bit more interesting than last week's breathless Larry O'Donnell promise of the "It's Rove" revelation.





Newsweek reports that Time magazine correspondent Matt Cooper sent an e-mail at 11:07 on a Friday morning, July 11, 2003 to his bureau chief, Michael Duffy.



Subject: Rove/P&C," (for personal and confidential)



"Spoke to Rove on double super secret background for about two mins before he went on vacation..." Cooper proceeded to spell out some guidance on a story that was beginning to roil Washington. He finished, "please don't source this to [R]ove or even WH [White House]" and suggested another reporter check with the CIA.



Cooper is free from jail as he turned over this e-mail [and others] and has agreed to testify in the Valerie Plame case and disclose his source to Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. Cooper's source gave him permission to testify.



So is Rove ready to be "frog marched" out of the White House as Bush-hater and Valerie Plame's hubby Joe Wilson has fantasized about?



David Corn warns the Bush haters to be cautious:



To be clear, this new evidence does not necessarily mean slammer-time for Rove. Under the relevant law, it's only a crime for a government official to identify a covert intelligence official if the government official knows the intelligence officer is under cover, and this documentary evidence, I'm told, does not address this particular point. But this new evidence does show that Rove -- despite his lawyers claim that Rove "did not tell any reporter that Valerie Plame worked for the CIA" -- did reveal to Cooper in a deep-background conversation that Wilson's wife was in the CIA.



Timeline



Valerie Plame's name first appeared in a July 14, 2003, syndicated column by Robert Novak. But that column was written before July 11th, and was distributed by Creators Syndicate over the Associated Press wire on July 11th. [It appears that Rove spoke to Cooper sometime in the morning on July 11th.] The column is also e-mailed to those publications that syndicate the column.



Novak was chasing the story as early as July 7 according to the transcript of "CNN WOLF BLITZER REPORTS"



ROBERT NOVAK, CO-HOST, "CROSSFIRE": Former Ambassador Wilson broke the secrecy that a retired diplomat, unknown, had gone to Niger in the year 2002 to investigate whether the Iraqis tried to buy yellow cake, uranium from Niger.



BLITZER: You mean when he wrote that op-ed page article in "The New York Times"?



NOVAK: "New York Times." That was on a Sunday morning.



On Monday, [July 7] I began to report on something that I thought was very curious. Why was it that Ambassador Wilson, who had no particular experience in weapons of mass destruction, and was a sharp critic of the Iraqi policy of President Bush and, also, had been a high-ranking official in the Clinton White House, who had contributed politically to Democrats -- some Republicans, but mostly Democrats -- why was he being selected?



I asked this question to a senior Bush administration official, and he said that he believed that the assignment was suggested by an employee at the CIA in the Counterproliferation Office who happened to be ambassador Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame.



I then called another senior official of the Bush administration, and he said, Oh, you know about that? And he confirmed that that was an accurate story. I then called the CIA. They said that, to their knowledge, he did not -- that the mission was not suggested by Ambassador Wilson's wife, but that she had been asked by her colleagues in the Counterproliferation Office, to contact her husband. So she was involved.



BLITZER: Because he was a former ambassador in Gabon, he knew that part of Africa, and that's, presumably, why they wanted to send him on this mission.



NOVAK: I'm not going into motives. I thought it was strange because he is not an expert in counterproliferation. He had not been ambassador to Niger, he had served in Niger at one time.



BLITZER: But he was a senior on African affairs at the NFC under Clinton?



NOVAK: Under Clinton, that's correct.



So that was the story I wrote, was about the details of Ambassador Wilson's mission, which created a great storm. And in the sixth paragraph of a ten-paragraph story I mentioned that two senior administration officials had said it was suggested by his wife, who worked at the CIA.



Intelligence Identities Protection Act



Also take note: To constitute a violation of the Intelligence Identities Protection Act, a disclosure by a government official must have been deliberate, the person doing it must have known that the CIA officer was a covert agent, and he or she must have known that "the United States is taking affirmative measures to conceal such covert agent's intelligence relationship to the United States.



Karl Rove may not be in legal trouble, but there's no question this will get very interesting soon.

Matt Cooper's Source - Newsweek National News - MSNBC.com

Matt Cooper's Source - Newsweek National News - MSNBC.com

Newsweek
July 18 issue - It was 11:07 on a Friday morning, July 11, 2003, and Time magazine correspondent Matt Cooper was tapping out an e-mail to his bureau chief, Michael Duffy. "Subject: Rove/P&C," (for personal and confidential), Cooper began. "Spoke to Rove on double super secret background for about two mins before he went on vacation ..." Cooper proceeded to spell out some guidance on a story that was beginning to roil Washington. He finished, "please don't source this to rove or even WH [White House]" and suggested another reporter check with the CIA.

Last week, after Time turned over that e-mail, among other notes and e-mails, Cooper agreed to testify before a grand jury in the Valerie Plame case. Explaining that he had obtained last-minute "personal consent" from his source, Cooper was able to avoid a jail sentence for contempt of court. Another reporter, Judith Miller of The New York Times, refused to identify her source and chose to go to jail instead.

For two years, a federal prosecutor, Patrick Fitzgerald, has been investigating the leak of Plame's identity as an undercover CIA agent. The leak was first reported by columnist Robert Novak on July 14, 2003. Novak apparently made some arrangement with the prosecutor, but Fitzgerald continued to press other reporters for their sources, possibly to show a pattern (to prove intent) or to make a perjury case. (It is illegal to knowingly identify an undercover CIA officer.) Rove's words on the Plame case have always been carefully chosen. "I didn't know her name. I didn't leak her name," Rove told CNN last year when asked if he had anything to do with the Plame leak. Rove has never publicly acknowledged talking to any reporter about former ambassador Joseph Wilson and his wife. But last week, his lawyer, Robert Luskin, confirmed to NEWSWEEK that Rove did—and that Rove was the secret source who, at the request of both Cooper's lawyer and the prosecutor, gave Cooper permission to testify.

The controversy arose when Wilson wrote an op-ed column in The New York Times saying that he had been sent by the CIA in February 2002 to investigate charges that Iraq was trying to buy uranium from the African country of Niger. Wilson said he had found no evidence to support the claim. Wilson's column was an early attack on the evidence used by the Bush administration to justify going to war in Iraq. The White House wished to discredit Wilson and his attacks. The question for the prosecutor is whether someone in the administration, in an effort to undermine Wilson's credibility, intentionally revealed the covert identity of his wife.

In a brief conversation with Rove, Cooper asked what to make of the flap over Wilson's criticisms. NEWSWEEK obtained a copy of the e-mail that Cooper sent his bureau chief after speaking to Rove. (The e-mail was authenticated by a source intimately familiar with Time's editorial handling of the Wilson story, but who has asked not to be identified because of the magazine's corporate decision not to disclose its contents.) Cooper wrote that Rove offered him a "big warning" not to "get too far out on Wilson." Rove told Cooper that Wilson's trip had not been authorized by "DCIA"—CIA Director George Tenet—or Vice President Dick Cheney. Rather, "it was, KR said, wilson's wife, who apparently works at the agency on wmd [weapons of mass destruction] issues who authorized the trip." Wilson's wife is Plame, then an undercover agent working as an analyst in the CIA's Directorate of Operations counterproliferation division. (Cooper later included the essence of what Rove told him in an online story.) The e-mail characterizing the conversation continues: "not only the genesis of the trip is flawed an[d] suspect but so is the report. he [Rove] implied strongly there's still plenty to implicate iraqi interest in acquiring uranium fro[m] Niger ... "

Nothing in the Cooper e-mail suggests that Rove used Plame's name or knew she was a covert operative. Nonetheless, it is significant that Rove was speaking to Cooper before Novak's column appeared; in other words, before Plame's identity had been published. Fitzgerald has been looking for evidence that Rove spoke to other reporters as well. "Karl Rove has shared with Fitzgerald all the information he has about any potentially relevant contacts he has had with any reporters, including Matt Cooper," Luskin told NEWSWEEK.


 

David Corn: Explosive New Rove Revelation Coming Soon? UPDATE: It's Here - Yahoo! News

David Corn: Explosive New Rove Revelation Coming Soon? UPDATE: It's Here - Yahoo! News
Time to get ready for the Karl Rove frog-march?

I don't usually blog on Saturday evenings. But I've received information too good not to share immediately. It was only yesterday that I was bemoaning the probability that -- after a week of apparent Rove-related revelations--it might be a while before any more news emerged about the Plame/CIA leak. Yet tonight I received this as-solid-as-it-gets tip: on Sunday Newsweek is posting a story that nails Rove. The newsmagazine has obtained documentary evidence that Rove was indeed a key source for Time magazine's Matt Cooper and that Rove--prior to the publication of the Bob Novak column that first publicly disclosed Valerie Wilson/Plame as a CIA official -- told Cooper that former Ambassador Joseph Wilson's wife apparently worked at the CIA and was involved in Joseph Wilson's now-controversial trip to Niger.

To be clear, this new evidence does not necessarily mean slammer-time for Rove. Under the relevant law, it's only a crime for a government official to identify a covert intelligence official if the government official knows the intelligence officer is under cover, and this documentary evidence, I'm told, does not address this particular point. But this new evidence does show that Rove -- despite his lawyers claim that Rove "did not tell any reporter that Valerie Plame worked for the CIA" -- did reveal to Cooper in a deep-background conversation that Wilson's wife was in the CIA. No wonder special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald pursued Cooper so fiercely. And Fitzgerald must have been delighted when Time magazine -- over Cooper's objection--surrendered Cooper's emails and notes, which, according to a previous Newsweek posting by Michael Isikoff, named Rove as Cooper's source. In court on Wednesday, Fitzgerald said that following his receipt of Cooper's emails and notes "it is clear to us we need [Cooper's] testimony perhaps more so than in the past." This was a clue that Fitzgerald had scored big when he obtained the Cooper material.

This new evidence could place Rove in serious political, if not legal, jeopardy (or, at least it should). If what I am told is true, this is proof that the Bush White House was using any information it could gather on Joseph Wilson -- even classified information related to national security -- to pursue a vendetta against Wilson, a White House critic. Even if it turns out Rove did not break the law regarding the naming of intelligence officials, this new disclosure could prove Rove guilty of leaking a national security secret to a reporter for political ends. What would George W. Bush do about that?

On September 27, 2003 -- after the news broke that the Justice Department, responding to a request from the CIA, was investigating the Plame/CIA leak -- White House press secretary Scott McClellan said of the Plame/CIA leak, "That is not the way this White House operates, and no one would be authorized to do such a thing." He also declared that the allegation that Rove was involved in this leak was "a ridiculous suggestion, and it is simply not true." Days later, Bush issued a straightforward statement about the Plame/CIA leak:

There are too many leaks of classified information in Washington. If there's leaks out of my administration, I want to know who it is, and if the person has violated the law, the person will be taken care of.

Perhaps Bush won't have to "take care of" Rove if this new evidence does not lead to a prosecutable violation of the law. But Bush also called on any government official with knowledge of the leak to "come forward and speak out." Has Rove done so? No. So it seems he violated a presidential command. Would Bush be obliged to fire him for insubordination? And there's another key point to consider: whether Rove told the truth when he testified to Fitzgerald's grand jury. Rove's attorney, Robert Luskin, has acknowledged that Rove appeared before the grand jury, and Luskin has said that Rove did speak to Cooper prior to the publication of the Novak column. But what did Rove tell Fitzgerald and the grand jury about this conversation with Cooper? And -- here's the big question -- does Rove's account jibe with the new documentary evidence that Newsweek is scheduled to disclose? If it does not, Fitzgerald would have a good start on a perjury charge against Rove.

At a public meeting in the summer of 2003, Joseph Wilson, responding to a question about the leak, quipped that it would be interesting "to see whether or not we can get Karl Rove frog-marched out of the White House in handcuffs." He then had to pull back from that comment and concede he had no evidence to support his hunch that Rove was one of the leakers. (By the way, Novak cited two unnamed Bush administration officials when he published the Plame/CIA leak.) With Newsweek's latest article, we may be getting closer to frog-marching time.


 

FT.com / Home UK - Top Bush adviser revealed as Plame source

Top Bush adviser revealed as Plame source
By Holly Yeager in Washington
Published: July 10 2005 23:17 | Last updated: July 10 2005 23:17

Karl Rove, President George W. Bush's top political adviser, was the secret source who gave a Time magazine reporter permission to testify last week, thus avoiding jail for contempt of court, Newsweek reported on Sunday.


Mr Rove has been the subject of growing speculation as two journalists faced prison for failing to reveal their sources to a federal prosecutor investigating the leak of the identity of Valerie Plame, an undercover CIA officer.

Last week Judith Miller of the New York Times was jailed after she refused to testify before a grand jury about her source. Matt Cooper, of Time magazine, had expected to keep his source a secret as well. But in dramatic fashion, just as he was about to persist in maintaining his silence, he said he received permission from his source to testify in court.

Mr Cooper has refused to identify his source publicly. But in this week's edition Newsweek said Mr Rove's attorney had confirmed that Mr Rove had discussed Joseph Wilson, a former ambassador who is married to Ms Plame, with Mr Cooper and that he gave Mr Cooper permission to testify.

It is illegal to reveal knowingly the identity of an undercover officer, and the prosecutor has been searching for the source of the leak who revealed Ms Plame's identity, which was first reported by Robert Novak, a columnist.

Mr Rove has insisted he did not leak Ms Plame's name, and e-mail accounts included in the Newsweek story only make clear that he talked to Mr Cooper about Mr Wilson's wife, without revealing her name.

“Nothing in the Cooper e-mail suggests that Rove used Plame's name or knew she was a covert operative,” according to Newsweek. “Nonetheless, it is significant that Rove was speaking to Cooper before Novak's column appeared; in other words, before Plame's identity had been published.”

Newest Rove Revelation: Legally Harmful Smoking Gun?
by Joe Gandelman
"Do you know who I am? I'm Mo Green, I made my bones when you were going out with Cheerleaders." — Mo Green in The Godfather.

A new Newsweek story fingers Bush political right-hand-man Karl Rove as at least one person who told a reporter that Joe Wilson's wife worked as a CIA agent.

But now the prevailing question is: did Rove's alleged role and the way he allegedly played it fall under the detailed law or will this be a case of something that may be politically reprehensible — but not actually unlawful. And, if that's the case, what (if anything) will President George Bush do in light of his own previous comments?

At issue is Michael Isakoff's latest now-it-can-be-told piece. A few key sections:
It was 11:07 on a Friday morning, July 11, 2003, and Time magazine correspondent Matt Cooper was tapping out an e-mail to his bureau chief, Michael Duffy. "Subject: Rove/P&C," (for personal and confidential), Cooper began. "Spoke to Rove on double super secret background for about two mins before he went on vacation ..." Cooper proceeded to spell out some guidance on a story that was beginning to roil Washington. He finished, "please don't source this to rove or even WH [White House]" and suggested another reporter check with the CIA.

Last week, after Time turned over that e-mail, among other notes and e-mails, Cooper agreed to testify before a grand jury in the Valerie Plame case. Explaining that he had obtained last-minute "personal consent" from his source, Cooper was able to avoid a jail sentence for contempt of court....
So it would appear some newspaper and analysts' speculation was on-the-dime: Cooper likely heard from Rove who told him to go ahead with his tesimony. Would Rove agree to THAT if he felt he was possibly heading to the slammer....or is it more likely his top lawyer gave him good news?

But the most damning part of the Newsweek story is this:

In a brief conversation with Rove, Cooper asked what to make of the flap over Wilson's criticisms. NEWSWEEK obtained a copy of the e-mail that Cooper sent his bureau chief after speaking to Rove. (The e-mail was authenticated by a source intimately familiar with Time's editorial handling of the Wilson story, but who has asked not to be identified because of the magazine's corporate decision not to disclose its contents.) Cooper wrote that Rove offered him a "big warning" not to "get too far out on Wilson." Rove told Cooper that Wilson's trip had not been authorized by "DCIA"—CIA Director George Tenet—or Vice President Dick Cheney. Rather, "it was, KR said, wilson's wife, who apparently works at the agency on wmd [weapons of mass destruction] issues who authorized the trip." Wilson's wife is Plame, then an undercover agent working as an analyst in the CIA's Directorate of Operations counterproliferation division. (Cooper later included the essence of what Rove told him in an online story.) The e-mail characterizing the conversation continues: "not only the genesis of the trip is flawed an[d] suspect but so is the report. he [Rove] implied strongly there's still plenty to implicate iraqi interest in acquiring uranium fro[m] Niger ... "

Nothing in the Cooper e-mail suggests that Rove used Plame's name or knew she was a covert operative. Nonetheless, it is significant that Rove was speaking to Cooper before Novak's column appeared; in other words, before Plame's identity had been published. Fitzgerald has been looking for evidence that Rove spoke to other reporters as well. "Karl Rove has shared with Fitzgerald all the information he has about any potentially relevant contacts he has had with any reporters, including Matt Cooper," Luskin told NEWSWEEK.

A source close to Rove, who declined to be identified because he did not wish to run afoul of the prosecutor or government investigators, added that there was "absolutely no inconsistency" between Cooper's e-mail and what Rove has testified to during his three grand-jury appearances in the case. "A fair reading of the e-mail makes clear that the information conveyed was not part of an organized effort to disclose Plame's identity, but was an effort to discourage Time from publishing things that turned out to be false," the source said, referring to claims in circulation at the time that Cheney and high-level CIA officials arranged for Wilson's trip to Africa.
It almost sounds as if we've come full circle, back to the era of the highly-derided (particularly by Republicans) "it all depends on what is is."

And it's possible there's enough "wiggle room" so that "is" in this case really "ain't" and it won't mean penalties under the law.

But if it indeed comes out — definitively — that Rove was a participant (either just him or several others) it will be absolutely fascinating to see President George Bush wiggle out of this Feb. 11, 2004 story:
President Bush said Tuesday he welcomes a Justice Department investigation into who revealed the classified identity of a CIA operative.

"If there's a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is," Bush told reporters at an impromptu news conference during a fund-raising stop in Chicago, Illinois. "If the person has violated law, that person will be taken care of.

"I welcome the investigation. I am absolutely confident the Justice Department will do a good job.

"I want to know the truth," the president continued. "Leaks of classified information are bad things."

He added that he did not know of "anybody in my administration who leaked classified information."

Bush said he has told his administration to cooperate fully with the investigation and asked anyone with knowledge of the case to come forward.
So: if Rove did tell Bush, how WAS Rove "taken care of?" There wasn't the slightest carefully couched comment from the President's p.r. team that Rove might have been involved in this in anyway. Was he "taken care of" by admonishment? Was he punished by being forced to listen to Tom Cruise lecture him on psychiatry? Or something a bit less severe than that?

If he didn't tell Bush, then that would mean he has mislead the President. Shouldn't Rove then take the honorable path and decide it's time to "move in another direction" or accept some nice, big, fat offer in the private sector?

Or will the argument be "well, he didn't really violate the law — so there!" implying that Rove's alleged role was perfectly OK. If so, then it would suggest that this kind of behavior sets the political bar at a new (low) level and a future Democratic administration has the go-ahead to use the same tactics.

Some additional thoughts:



Since this is a complex law (and we will leave government and weblog lawyers to write more about that) we won't venture to say how we think the case itself will come out. But it does appear as if it is possible (and likely given Copper's message from his source to go ahead) that Rove will not be prosecuted.

No matter what happens, it boldly underlined Rove's role as what analysts in the 1960s used to call a "political hatchet man," a hands-on operative who will seek to overtly and, even moreso, covertly discredit and destroy anyone who stands in the way of his boss' objectives.

The country could be faced with a situation where Rove's role is confirmed, Bush's comments above are never addressed or justified with lawyerly parsing, and Rove does NOT resign but continues with absolutely no legal, political or personal consquences.


If we'd have to bet money, we'd bet on that outcome, simply because of the way politics seems to operate in the 21st century, where past rules of the game involving ethics and propriety are seemingly changed according to the circumstance and power to do so. If that happens, look for Democrats to be outraged, Republicans and talk show hosts to quickly adjust and hammer away with whatever defense arguments their team offers — and the actual situation remain unchanged.

Except for one thing.

Credibility.

If Rove played a prominent role, it'll raise one more question about veracity.

Swing voters, centrists and even some Republicans would not be unaware of the disconnect if Karl Rove was involved and those who had indigantly blasted the honesty of the Clinton adminstration felt this is really no big deal...because he's Karl Rove.

BUT THAT'S JUST OUR VIEW. THERE ARE OTHERS AND HERE'S A CROSS SECTION:
--Wizbang


The fact that Plame sent Wilson on the trip to Nigeria was an important part of debunking Wilson's report. This was no political smear, it was the pointing out of nepotism which further supported the idea that Wilson's trip was politically, not factually, motivated. If keeping Plame's identity a secret was such a top priority then maybe she and her husband shouldn't have gotten involved with the phony trip to Nigeria. If anything, these revelations are far more damaging to Plame and her husband than they are to Rove.
--Matt Sheffield:"The gossip spread more widely and rapidly after Wilson went public with his mission in a New York Times op-ed blasting the Bush admin and the war in Iraq (a National Review contributor disclosed in 2003 that he knew about Plame before Novak's column). Eventually, several reporters heard about the gossip, but only Novak and Cooper decided to pass it along. Like many of the kerfuffles created by Clinton foes in the 90s, the Plame game seems to be another scandalous non-scandal."
--Americablog:"Meanwhile, we still have to see whether or not crimes were committed. Rove doing the perp walk is still a real possibility. Besides that, there should be ramifications for Rove. So, you have your leaker now, George Bush, what are you going to do about it? And, it would be really, really great if this week, if the White House Press Corps asked some questions about Rove...or maybe they are have kind of double super secret background, too."
--Captain Ed:
So far, this lead has gone nowhere in the Plame leak. Patrick Fitzgerald has done nothing but embarrass himself by jailing a reporter and turning her into a martyr over something that probably doesn't amount to a prosecutable crime in the first place. It will be damned difficult to generate any outrage on behalf of a CIA agent who sent her husband on a public mission to undermine the American government during a time of war, mostly through lies and half-truths, and who now wants to hide behind a covert status that no one can actually establish applied at the time. Fitzgerald needs to close the case and let Judith Miller out of jail.

He goes into more detail in this follow up post, arguing the left will make a fuss over it but in the end its a non-scandal.
--Andrew Sullivan:"The salient fact is that Rove appears to have told Cooper about Wilson's wife working at the CIA before the Novak column appeared. Rove was clearly coordinating a message to discredit Wilson by linking him to his wife, and implying that Wilson had no real authorization from the senior levels of the administration. Rove may not be guilty of a crime, if he did not disclose her name and did not know she was undercover. He is guilty of sleaze and spin. But then that's also hardly news, is it?"
--Pejmanesque:"There is--I am sure--more information that will come out regarding this story. But for now, there is not enough to "frog march" Karl Rove out of the White House. Not nearly enough."
--Laura Rosen:"Isikoff confirms that Rove is the source who gave Cooper direct permission to testify last week at the last minute. I find it fascinating that Rove was not only campaigning to discredit Wilson, but that he was pushing so hard to legitimate the bogus Iraq- Niger uranium information, just days before the administration capitulated and said it shouldn't have used that language in Bush's SOTU."
--Mahablog:
Bush won't do anything about that, of course, unless it occurs to him that Rove is a bigger political liability than he is an asset. Bush doesn't care about national security or the law or anything other than himself. As long as Bush wants to keep Rove around, the Right will form a solid wall of denial, built mostly on narrowly constructed legalisms (e.g., Rove didn't know she was an operative, so he didn't commit a crime, so he didn't do anything wrong, and liberals stink) and misdirection (shifting the story from White House lies about uranium to who authorized Joe Wilson's trip to Niger).

--Peking Duck thinks it is a smoking gun:


It's going to be a fun second term for our war-time president. Every success he claims — No Child Left Behind, the War on Terror, the war in Iraq, tax reform, Medicare reform, Clear Skies (!), et. al. — every one is propped up by sloganeering, photo ops, deception, deceit and outright lies. They're built on sand, and once the tide rises they'll come crashing down, one by one. Karl Rove's fall will almost certainly help raise the tide.

--Cookie Jill at skippy has links to a July 14 Novak column that suggest KR may not get presents from Santa this year:"so...rove knows and is circulating information on 11 july that he obtained from an article published on 14 july. wonder where rove hides his crystal balls.
--Digby:
The big question that was swirling wasn't who sent Wilson on the trip, for gawds sake. It was whether they knew the Niger documents were forgeries and spread it around anyway. Karl's little phone call was an effort to cover-up the fact that the administration had lied its ass off making the case for war --- Valerie Plame was a pawn they used to try to taint Wilson as some kind of hen-pecked househusband when he exposed an element of their bogus evidence. Regardless of whether Rove knew she was an NOC, and this doesn't prove it one way or the other, it proves he was a scumbag who was engineering a cover-up. One thing we know for sure is that Wilson was right.


Karl Rove and others in the White House exposed an undercover CIA agent in order to cover up their lies about Iraq.


In a follow up post, he says Rove should resign, broken law or not. "Wringing our hands and saying nothing will ever happen because he's Superman is a self-fulfilling prophecy. The dirtiest most devious president in history was brought down by his own paranoia and sloppiness. Karl Rove is no more omnipotent than he was," he writes.
--Betsy Newmark:

Think about this. Wilson was a has-been, small potatoes diplomat. She's an obscure worker at the CIA. Why do people like Andrea Mitchell know where she works? You think he was a big a attention-grabber before all this as he was after?

I just think that Rove's legal innocence will be beside the point. Just wait for Bush to go to Crawford. The whole month of August will be taken up with sides arguing about whether or not Rove should be fired. Every summer of Bush's presidency except in 2004 there has been some scandalette that the media, for want of any other story, has blown way out of proportion. All we can hope is that they will concentrate more on terrorism threats and the Supreme Court nomination(s) and this brouhaha will be swallowed up by more important stories.
--The Talking Dog (written on July 6 but still relevant in its main point):


If, in fact, Mr. Rove knowingly disclosed the name and identity of a covert American operative, he is guilty of not only the specific felony of doing so, but quite likely treason, and to the extent his deliberate outing of an American covert operative resulted in the death or deaths of field operatives, he should, in all fairness, be facing the death penalty. Understand the principle of "IIOKIYAR", which most of you understand (but simply means "It's OK if you are a Republican"). Don't worry: there's no limit to what that simple phrase covers, up to and including treason. Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald will just have to come to that realization himself, if he attempts to actually... you know... do anything to Rove. But that's the way it is.

--Common Sense Desk:"Unfortunately, of all of the sins that are apparent in this mess I think that the sin of hypocrisy is among the worst. It is one of many such sins committed by this man who is entrusted to advise our president. That is a sacred trust. Whether he has committed an indictable offense or not is irrelevant. He betrayed the American people and our great Republic by playing politics with sensitive information to provide cover, not just for his own despicable ass, but also for the others complicit in the charade that has put us in an untenable position in Iraq and pretty much everywhere else."
--Powerline details the reasons why its authors (who are lawyers) do not feel Rove has legal problems. Key quote:
It is hard to see how Rove could be indicted for violation of the Intelligence Identities Protection Act, and it is very unlikely that he would have been foolish enough to testify falsely before the grand jury about his conversations with journalists. None of this will matter much, though, when it is publicly acknowledged that Rove was one of the sources of the Plame "leak." (This isn't, by the way, the sort of communication that is ordinarily referred to as a "leak.") We can expect a media feeding frenzy or potentially unprecedented proportions.

Rove presumably told the President that he was one of the sources of the Plame information long ago. It is interesting that Bush didn't take the path of least resistance and ease Rove out of the administration at the end of his first term. The President's reputation for loyalty to has aides is certainly well-deserved.


--The Kudzu Files:"Assuming the information is correct, if Karl Rove is not fired, and explicitly and completely separated from the Bush Administration, the minute he is positively identified as the source - if George Bush hesitates to dismiss him immediately - then President George Bush should be impeached. This is far, far more serious than oral sex in the White House, or possibly making a few thousand dollars on a twenty-year-old land deal. This is what the issue should have been all along - are the lives of American intelligence operatives worth more than political expediency, or not? George Bush likes clear-cut, black-and-white issues. Mr. President, it doesn't get more clear-cut than this."
--Southpaw:"I think that Rove now realizes that there is no way out of this for him short of another Saturday Night Massacre. Fitzgerald has to go, but even with a subservient Congress and librul media, he still needs some political cover before he can order Fitzgerald's firing......Personally, I think that Rove's chances of getting away with this are about 50/50. Which is 50% better than they should be. Thanks for going to the tank, American news media. Thanks a lot."

Bush aide 'was reporter's source' | North America | Breaking News 24/7 - NEWS.com.au (11-07-2005)

TOP White House adviser Karl Rove was one of the secret sources who spoke to reporters about a covert CIA operative whose identity was leaked to the media, Newsweek has reported.

Mr Rove's lawyer, Robert Luskin, confirmed Mr Rove talked to Time about former ambassador Joseph Wilson and his wife, CIA agent Valerie Plame, the magazine reported.
Mr Luskin said Mr Rove had recently given Time reporter Matt Cooper permission to testify about the conversation to a grand jury investigating the leak in 2003, Newsweek reported.

A US federal judge ordered Cooper and New York Times reporter Judith Miller to testify and reveal their confidential sources.

Cooper last week avoided a jail sentence for contempt of court by agreeing to testify in the case.

Miller refused to testify and was jailed.

The case has become an important test involving freedom of the press, and has pitted the media's traditional use of anonymous sources against the efforts of a federal government prosecutor to investigate a possible crime.

It is illegal to knowingly reveal the identity of an undercover CIA agent.

Mr Rove has previously made statements about the Plame leak but has never publicly acknowledged talking to any reporter about the CIA agent.

He has chosen his words carefully when questioned about the leak.

"I didn't know her name, I didn't leak her name," he told CNN last year when asked if he had had anything to do with the leak of Ms Plame's name.

Special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has been leading a two-year investigation into the leak, amid questions about whether it came from White House as part of an attempt to discredit Mr Wilson after he contradicted President George W. Bush's assertions about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.

Mr Wilson wrote an opinion column in The New York Times saying he had been sent by the CIA in 2002 to investigate the Bush Administration's claim that Iraq was trying to buy uranium from Africa – a claim the administration used to justify going to war in Iraq.

Mr Wilson said he found no evidence to support the claim.

The Newsweek article said an email Cooper sent his bureau chief after briefly talking with Mr Rove stated "it was, KR said, Wilson's wife, who apparently works at the agency on wmd (weapons of mass destruction) issues who authorised the trip".

The email did not suggest Mr Rove had used Ms Plame's name, or that he knew she was a covert agent, the article said.

"Karl Rove has shared with Fitzgerald all the information he has about any potentially relevant contacts he has had with any reporters, including Matt Cooper," Mr Luskin told Newsweek.
