McClellan: Cheney should testify about CIA leak

McClellan: Cheney should testify about CIA leak

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Vice President Dick Cheney should testify before Congress about his role in the leaking of a CIA agent's identity, former White House spokesman Scott McClellan told members of the House Judiciary Committee on Friday.

"The vice president has information that has not been shared publicly," McClellan said in response to a question from Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat, about who Congress should question in connection with the leaking of Valerie Plame Wilson's name to the media.
"You could go down the list: Karl Rove, Ari Fleischer ..." McClellan added, referring to President Bush's former political adviser and first White House spokesman.


McClellan also also said he could not rule out that Cheney had ordered his former chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, to leak Plame Wilson's identity. A later investigation showed that Libby, in fact, had been involved in the leaking of the CIA operative's name.

It's heating up again! Wexler and Kucinich asking for impeachment too!

Waxman Urges FBI To Release Bush, Cheney Interviews In CIA Leak Case

Waxman Urges FBI To Release Bush, Cheney Interviews In CIA Leak Case

(The Politico) House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) urged Attorney General Michael Mukasey Tuesday to release FBI interviews of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney as part of the investigation into the leak of the identity of former CIA agent Valerie Plame.

Waxman cited new information from the FBI interview of I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby--who was convicted in the case--and the recent disclosures in a tell-all book written by former Bush press secretary Scott McClellan.

"In his interview with the FBI, Mr. Libby stated that it was “possible” that Vice President Cheney instructed him to disseminate information about [Plame] to the press," Waxman said in a letter to Mukasey.

"This is a significant revelation and, if true, a serious matter. It cannot be responsibly investigated without access to the Vice President’s FBI interview."


Good to see the drip, drip, drip back! If this concludes favorably in 2009, I have no problem with skipping the tardy impeachment proceedings and going straight to the imprisonment phase of these criminals.
