(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.
