Novak caught lying (video)

I don't know what your definition of "doing something wrong" is but when I say that I wouldn't do a thing again, that functions as a pretty good stand-in for wrong.

Not in Novak-land, a dim and cobwebby place where lying is rewarded with TV appearances and column syndication.

Judd Legum writes: "Appearing last night on Fox News’ 'Hannity and Colmes,' Robert Novak denied that the CIA ever warned him that revealing Valerie Plame’s identity in his column would 'cause any damage.' Therefore, he doesn’t believe he “did anything wrong." [VIDEO]

The CIA (or, I guess, those in the CIA don't say the CIA, they just say CIA or the agency...) disagrees. A CIA spokesperson said that three days before Novak's notorious column that:

"[H]e warned Novak, in the strongest terms he was permitted to use without revealing classified information, that Wilson’s wife had not authorized the mission and that if he did write about it, her name should not be revealed."
Can we get an indictment? We'll settle for a subpoena even. Come on, just a wee subpoena. (ThinkProgress)
