The Gaping Hole In Rove's Defense

Indict Rove and keep on trucking; right up the chain of command.

Rave on Fitz!

If you want we will make a citizens' arrest of Bush and Cheney

Think Progress � The Gaping Hole In Rove�s Defense:

"Yesterday, Karl Rove testified for almost four hours before a federal grand jury about his previous statements pertaining to the leak of an undercover CIA agent's identity. Rove offered this stunning defense:

Rove's testimony focused almost exclusively on his conversation about Plame with Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper in 2003 and whether the top aide later tried to conceal it, the source [close to Rove] said. Rove testified, in essence, that 'it would have been a suicide mission' to 'deliberately lie' about his conversation with Cooper because he knew beforehand that it eventually would be revealed, the source said.

Rove wants the grand jury to believe that he wouldn't have lied in 2003 about his role in the Plame affair because he knew journalists would ultimately tell the truth. But in fact, President Bush and the White House believed in 2003 that journalists would remain silent about the case and would refuse to name their sources:"
