Leak your mind

News & Politics

So you've got a situation where a leak has endangered the lives of agents and undermined our national security and you need to get out of it? Well, leak s'more: "Karl Rove's loyalists are promoting a new version of the Valerie Plame leak to the New York Times. Now, they say, Novak called Rove on July 8 and told him about Valerie Plame, and Rove merely said, 'I heard that too..'," writes Jeralyn Merritt. "How dumb do they think we are?"

The new anonymous source is reported to be in the legal profession and claims to be privy to Rove's grand jury testimony. Only, the only people who would've been present are required by law to keep their pieholes shut:

"It's only a crime for a Government attorney or someone associated with one to disclose matters occurring before the grand jury. Witnesses before the grand jury and their attorneys are not under a secrecy rule. Only Government attorneys and personnel are allowed in the grand jury room. Transcripts of grand jury proceedings are not available to witness' lawyers before Indictment. Yet this source seems to be quite familiar with Karl Rove's grand jury testimony. Karl Rove's lawyer wasn't in the grand jury room.

Maybe Fitzgerald needs to add another subject to his investigation - this source in the legal profession who claims to be privy to Karl Rove's grand jury testimony and is now leaking it. He seems to be (now or in the past) on the government's team." (TalkLeft)
