Even after Scooter got his “get out of jail free” card from Bush, the case continues to get more interesting. Scott McClellan is set to have his memoirs hit the shelves in April and it includes juicy information like this:
“I had unknowingly passed along false information. And five of the highest ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice President, the President’s chief of staff, and the president himself.”
So we now have someone who was very high up in the White House admitting involvement by the President in a case involving the ousting of a CIA agent. Of course the White House will start using the “disgruntled employee” line of defense, but perhaps it is time for Congress to seriously look into this matter. Or will we just set a precedent for committing treason in this country?
