  • Did Rove commit perjury before a Grand Jury?  His initial statements to Scott McClelland were false....what about the grand jury? com
  • Rove told  Cooper that the woman "apparently works" for the CIA and that she had authorized her husband's trip to Africa to assess allegations that Iraq was trying to obtain yellowcake uranium for nuclear weapons, according to a July 11, 2003, e-mail by Cooper from  Newsweek.
  • Luskin: (Rove's lawyer) said "While Mr. Rove did identify the operative in a conversation with Mr. Cooper, Mr. Rove did not use her name - Valerie Plame, as she has been called in news accounts, or Valerie Wilson, as she prefers - or refer to her covert status, Newsweek said. Lawyers involved in the negotiations did not dispute the accuracy of the document Newsweek cited." from New York Times.   and "A fair reading of the e-mail as well as the context in which the conversation took place makes it clear that the information conveyed was not part of an organized effort to disclose Plame's identity," Mr. Luskin said."
  • July 2, 2005 Wayne Madsen Report:  "Karl Rove named as source of Plame leak. ...  Speaking on the The McLaughlin Group, taped July 1 and to be aired nationwide July 2, MSNBC political commentator Lawrence O'Donnell said that the documents Time magazine turned over to special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald names White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove as the person who leaked the name of CIA covert agent Valerie Plame to Time's Matt Cooper. (Here in Washington, DC, The McLaughlin Group with O'Donnell's revelation was pre-empted twice by NBC's WRC-TV Channel 4, on the evening of July 2 by NASCAR's Pepsi 400 and on the morning of July 3 by Wimbledon tennis). Since the story broke, O'Donnell has confirmed a second source claiming the Time documents finger Rove as the leaker. My own very reliable Washington source, a senior news editor, has also confirmed that Rove is the leaker of Plame's identity. That leak rolled up Valerie Plame's intelligence assets and informants as well as other non-official cover Brewster Jennings & Associates agents, causing irreparable harm to our national security. At a minimum, Rove faces a perjury indictment. At most, he can also be charged with making a false statement and violating the Intelligence Identities Protection Act of 1982. CIA sources report that at least one anonymous star placed on the CIA's Wall of Honor at its Langley, Virginia headquarters is a clandestine agent who was executed in a hostile foreign nation as a direct result of the White House leak. Rove could be looking at a lengthy prison term. Many Nixon officials spent years in prison for doing much less."
  • ..................WMR  Mar. 2007: Committee Democrats produced a chart showing over 20 different contacts between Bush administration officials and the media concerning the revealing of Plame Wilson's identity. They included on the administration's side, Vice President Dick Cheney, Irving Lewis Libby, Ari Fleischer, Cathie Martin, Karl Rove, Marc Grossman, and Richard Armitage, the CIA's Bill Harlow and Robert Grenier, and Walter Pincus (Washington Post), David Gregory (NBC News), John Dickerson (Time), Judith Miller (New York Times), Matt Cooper (Time), Robert Novak (Chicago Sun Times), and Bob Woodward (Washington Post). The chart also showed an "Unknown" block, which New Hampshire Democrat Paul Hodes said could be a "person or persons" not yet identified as being part of the leak. Plame Wilson said she could count on one hand the number of people who were authorized to know about her covert status and that her status was "not common knowledge on the Georgetown cocktail circuit."
  • July 10, 2005  Highbeam Statement of National Press Club President Rick Dunham on the Jailing of New York Times Reporter Judith Miller U.S. Newswire, July, 2005 WASHINGTON, July 6 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Following is a statement by National Press Club President Rick Dunham on the jailing of New York Times reporter Judith Miller: "It is tragic that, in pursuit of offenses real or imagined, a federal prosecutor sees fit to imprison a journalist who is simply doing her job and adhering to the basic ethical principles of her profession. It is a sad perversion of justice to send Judith Miller to jail for protecting a confidential source in a case where no crime has yet been alleged and no story was ever written by Ms. Miller
  • July 10, 2005 WayneMadsenReport "ROVEGATE --Newsweek magazine is reporting on the contents of a July 11, 2003 email between reporter Matt Cooper and Time Washington bureau chief Michael Duffy that was handed over, along with other email and notes, to special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald. Although the email shows that Rove talked to Cooper about Ambassador Joe Wilson's wife, there is no mention of how columnist Robert Novak obtained the information on Brewster Jennings & Associates, the carve out brass plate firm that was used by Valerie Plame and her colleagues and which was rolled up as a result of the leak. Rove and his lawyer are trying to limit the spin to Rove "not knowing" Plame's name, let alone that she was a covert CIA agent. Yet Plame's association with a non-official cover (NOC), by default, means that she was covert, pure and simple. Brewster Jennings reportedly "suffered greatly" as a result of the disclosure, according to a knowledgeable source. Another source reported that at least one Brewster Jennings NOC operating in a hostile intelligence environment was executed by counter-intelligence agents as a result of the White House disclosure. Other B&JA assets were forced to abandon their ongoing operations to identify networks involved in weapons of mass destruction proliferation. The CIA has been working on a damage assessment report on the Plame/B&JA disclosures. If no indictments of White House officials result from the Fitzgerald investigation, look for parts of that highly classified report to be leaked and then look for more imprisonments of journalists who refuse to divulge the source(s) of those leaks. Word from intelligence sources is that the damage assessment report is "devastating."  also reported on Mar 16, 2007

  • July 14, 2005 The Nation article: The Big Chill, July 14, 2005  "A chill has taken hold lately among both government officials and the US media. It comes in the wake of a US district court's decision to jail a New York Times reporter for refusing to reveal to a grand jury her sources in the Bush Administration and the FBI investigation of a Pentagon Iran analyst for leaking classified information to former officials with the pro-Israel lobby group AIPAC. As a result, those who engage in what have long been standard Washington practices--reporters ferreting out information from government sources, those sources confiding in policy associates, lobbyists and reporters--have become increasingly inhibited in carrying out their jobs."
  • July 15, 2005,  Democrats smell scandal.  Dean attacking: saying "Rove betrayed the identity of an undercover officer".  Rove...mentioned a CIA agent  in 'passing'?...., during a July 2003 conversation with Time magazine reporter Matt Cooper.  But Rove's lawyer said he did not identify the agent by name and had no 'intention' or outing her.  Rove said "Wilson's wife, who apparently works at the agency".  A few days later, Rober Novak named Valerie Plame as a CIA Operative in a July Column.   Rove said that he did not know the name of Wilson's wife when he spoke to Cooper.  
  • Was Rove also Judith Miller's source? Why did Rove previously deny his involvement in Leakgate? Will Bush fire Rove?
  • Judith Miller is in jail (civil contempt) for refusing to reveal who in the administration gave her the information on Valerie Plame.
  • Fitzgerald wants to know if she talked to before Novak outed Plame
  • July 16, 2005 Mehlman tries to cover for Rove by saying "was discouraging a reporter from writing a false story based on a false premise".
  • July 17, 2005 Woodward, Kurtz interview, CNN transcripts, file  KURTZ: Judith Miller in jail for protecting her sources, an act of conscience, paying a heavy price, but isn't there a minimal public sympathy for her because these sources were not exposing wrongdoing as Deep Throat did, but were outing a CIA operative?  
  • July 17, 2005 Cooper, on Meet the Press said he'd heard of Plame id first from Rove.   Nondisclosure documents also prohibit government officials from 'leaking' names.  see NY Sen. Charles Schumer.  Cooper says Rove and Libby are the 'two administration officials'.
  • July 17, 2005 Republicans on Sunday morning news shows still saying Rove heard of Plame's identity from the press.  Want an apology.   Dems say McClellan credibility is worthless.  Dem Rep. Jane Harman calls for revoking of security clearance for Rove and Libby.
  • Antiwar  "The case may also prove to be one more string – albeit a very central one – that, if pulled with sufficient determination, could well unravel a very tangled ball of yarn, and one that would confirm recent revelations in the British press – the so-called Downing Street memo – that the Bush administration was "fixing the facts" about the alleged threat posed by Iraqi President Saddam Hussein in order to grease the rails to war.  ...  It may also expose how a close-knit group of neoconservatives and Republican activists both inside and outside the administration also waged war against professionals in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the State Department in the run-up to war precisely because, as experts, they repeatedly came up with new "facts" that contradicted the propaganda of both the White House and its backers. Facts that somehow either had to be "fixed" or discredited."
  • McClellan 2008 RawStory
  • July 17, 2005  Uruknet "You can pretty much assume that journalists handling secret sources don't talk to each other, and can also assume that the Vice President's Office and Rove don't talk much, out of motives of possible personal animosity and to avoid the type of Watergate and Iran-Contra problems of which they are fully aware through bitter personal experience. What if Cheney or Libby found out about Plame (possibly from the memo referred to here, but it could have come from anywhere), and, rather than tell Rove directly, told Miller? There seems to be a Cheney-Miller connection, as evidenced by the fact that the Miller aluminum tubes story was immediately followed by Cheney using it in his build-up to war. Once Miller has the info, Cheney or Libby could hint to Rove that he might want to call Miller, and Miller would then pass on the information to Rove. Rove is then off the hook, as he is just the recipient of the scuttlebut of journalists, and can safely pass the information to Pincus, Cooper and Novak. The Rove e-mail message to Stephen Hadley about his conversation with Cooper, saying he 'didn't take the bait' when Cooper suggested that Wilson's criticisms had been damaging to the administration, is just papering the file for Rove's eventual legal defense. Cheney and Libby have cleverly used Miller to launder the information which Cheney wants to get to the press without having his fingerprints on it. Miller uncharacteristically didn't write about the story, which may be evidence that she was in on the scheme. As long as she keeps quiet, Cheney and Libby are safe. Once she is out of jail, they can arrange for her to have a nice book deal, funded by the usual scam of wholesale buying of books by right-wing operators to make the book seem more popular than it actually is."
  • July 19, 2005 It was learned that Rove did not disclose in first FBI interview that he had discussed Plame with Cooper.  That omission created the doubt about Rove from the inception of the investigation. 
  • Libby also confirmed to Cooper that Plame was a CIA agent and had sent Wilson to Niger.
  • Figzgerald is looking at others beyond Libby and Rove.  What about Abrams (Iran Contra)...??

U.S. intelligence insiders have pointed out that the White House is using "Rovegate" and "Who in the White House said what to whom?" as a smoke screen to divert attention away from the actual counter-proliferation work Mrs. Wilson and her Brewster Jennings & Associates team were engaged in. The arrival of Timothy Flanigan as Patrick J. Fitzgerald's boss is likely related to the mountains of evidence Fitzgerald has now collected to indict senior White House officials, particularly, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, for criminal conspiracy in exposing a sensitive U.S. intelligence operation that was targeting some of their closest political and business associates. Libby, it will be recalled, was the attorney for fugitive global smuggler and Clinton-pardoned multi-billionaire Marc Rich, someone who has close ties to the Sharon government and Israeli intelligence. It is no coincidence that FBI translator-turned-whistleblower Sibel Edmonds uncovered nuclear material and narcotics trafficking involving Turkish intermediaries with ties to Israel at the same time Brewster Jennings and the CIA's Counter Proliferation Division was hot on the trail of nuclear proliferators tied to the Israeli government of Ariel Sharon and the A.

  • Aug 19, 2005  Haaretz, Satterfield named
  • Aug 19, 2005 WMR "August 23 /August 19, 2005 -- Revelations about Satterfield and Able Danger are connected. The recent revelations that the Deputy Chief of Mission at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, David Satterfield, is the USGO-2 named in the Franklin-Rosen-Weissman indictment and the coming forward of the Defense Intelligence Agency's (DIA) Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer and his evidence that the elite Able Danger force had Mohammed Atta and three other hijackers under surveillance in 2000 and was prevented from taking action are related stories. Shaffer was the liaison between DIA and the U.S. Special Operations Able Danger team that was tracking Atta and his cell in the United States and abroad. The Pentagon inaction is being blamed on lawyers for the U.S. Special Operations Command who prevented the FBI from being informed of the Atta team's activities. What is being overlooked is that there was a significant neo-con element within the Clinton administration. It included then-Secretary of Defense William Cohen (a Republican) and the career Pentagon officials like Office of Net Assessment chief Andy Marshall, the indicted Larry Franklin, and Harold Rhode, who all increased their power in the Bush administration. This network was close to Clinton State Department officials Martin Indyk, who lost his security clearance while ambassador to Israel, and Dennis Ross, (now (2008)an advisor to Obama) of the pro-Likud Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP), the think tank that provided a number of personnel for Douglas Feith's Office of Special Plans, including David Schenker and Michael Makovsky (brother of WINEP Senior Fellow David Makovsky). WINEP's advisory board includes such neocon figures as Richard Perle, James Woolsey, James Roche (of Boeing-Air Force tanker contract fraud infamy), Jeane Kirkpatrick, and Max Kampelman. The pre-911 restrictions on Able Danger are evidence that the neo-cons were as damaging to the security interests of the United States under Clinton as they have been under Bush."

NYT, Oct. 29, 2005]  It’s unclear why Fitzgerald would take time out of his very busy schedule that day to visit Bush’s personal lawyer unless Fitzgerald had to pass on sensitive information about Bush’s status in the investigation.

  • Nov 5, 2005 WMR  Feith Replacement at Pentagon Identified in Libby Indictment. Undersecretary of Defense for Policy and Plans Eric Edelman has been identified as then "then Principal Deputy" to Vice President Dick Cheney's recently indicted Chief of Staff Lewis Libby. Edelman replaced Douglas Feith, the chief architect of the Pentagon's Office of Special Plans, as Undersecretary after he was given a recess appointment by President Bush to the Pentagon post. Edelman left the Vice President's office in June 2003 to take up his post as ambassador to Turkey. However, the indictment indicates that Edelman continued to be involved in discussions with Libby after beginning Turkish language training. According to FBI sources, Edelman used his position as ambassador to Turkey to cement a triad of weapons and drug smuggling and money laundering involving Turks, Israelis, and Americans. The CIA and US Customs Service busted one nuclear smuggling ring involving South African-Israeli national Asher Karni, a Pakistani businessman named Humayun Khan, and a Turkish Jew with strong Israeli ties named Zeki Bilmen. The smuggling network involved companies in Cape Town; Secaucus, New Jersey; and Islamabad, Pakistan. Karni was convicted by a US court for smuggling nuclear triggers to Pakistan via South Africa. The identification of Edelman in the Libby indictment as one of those possibly involved in the outing of a CIA agent and a covert company bears directly on the use of Turkey as a major facilitator in the trafficking of WMD components, particularly to the AQ Khan network in Pakistan.   search terms: International Advisors, Inc., House Speaker Bob Livingston, Turkey, Cayman Islands,  American Turkish Council, Dennis Hastert,  heroin, nuclear smuggling, money laundering, Cyprus, Dubai, CIA Counter-Proliferation Division,  full article

And then he said, you know, did you know that this -- excuse me, did you know that Ambassador Wilson's wife works at the CIA? And I was a little taken aback by that. I remember being taken aback by it. And I said -- he may have said a little more but that was -- he said that. And I said, no, I don't know that. And I said, no, I don't know that intentionally because I didn't want him to take anything I was saying as in any way confirming what he said, because at that point in time I did not recall that I had ever known, and I thought this is something that he was telling me that I was first learning. And so I said, no, I don't know that because I want to be very careful not to confirm it for him, so that he didn't take my statement as confirmation for him. indictment  Now, I had said earlier in the conversation, which I omitted to tell you, that this -- you know, as always, Tim, our discussion is off-the-record if that's okay with you, and he said, that's fine. So then he said -- I said -- he said, sorry -- he, Mr. Russert said to me, did you know that Ambassador Wilson's wife, or his wife, works at the CIA? And I said, no, I don't know that. And then he said, yeah -- yes, all the reporters know it. And I said, again, I don't know that. I just wanted to be clear that I wasn't confirming anything for him on this. And you know, I was struck by what he was saying in that he thought it was an important fact, but I didn't ask him anymore about it because I didn't want to be digging in on him, and he then moved on and finished the conversation, something like that. indictment  3. In truth and fact, as LIBBY well knew when he gave this testimony, it was false in that: a. Russert did not ask LIBBY if LIBBY knew that Wilson's wife worked for the CIA, nor did he tell LIBBY that all the reporters knew it; and b. At the time of this conversation, LIBBY was well aware that Wilson's wife worked at the CIA; indictment .  COUNT FIVE In violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1623.

On or about March 5, 2004 and March 24, 2004, in the District of Columbia, .I. LEWIS LIBBY, also known as "SCOOTER LIBBY," defendant herein, having taken an oath to testify truthfully in a proceeding before a grand jury of the United States, knowingly made a false material declaration, in that he gave the following testimony regarding his conversations with reporters concerning the employment of Joseph Wilson's wife by the CIA (underlined portions alleged as false): a. Testimony Given on or about March 5, 2004 Regarding a Conversation With Matthew Cooper on or About July 12, 2003:. indictment .  .Q. And it's your specific recollection that when you told Cooper about Wilson's wife working at the CIA, you attributed that fact to what reporters -- A. Yes. Q. -- plural, were saying. Correct? A. I was very clear to say reporters are telling us that because in my mind I still didn't know it as a fact. I thought I was -- all I had was this information that was coming in from the reporters.  Q. And at the same time you have a specific recollection of telling him, you don't know whether it's true or not, you're just telling him what reporters are saying? A. Yes, that's correct, sir. And I said, reporters are telling us that, I don't know if it's true. I was careful about that because among other things, I wanted to be clear I didn't know Mr. Wilson. I don't know -- I think I said, I don't know if he has a wife, but this is what we're hearing. indictment  b. Testimony Given on or about March 24, 2004 Regarding Conversations With Reporters:   Q. And let me ask you this directly. Did the fact that you knew that the law could turn, the law as to whether a crime was committed, could turn on where you learned the information from, affect your account for the FBI when you told them that you were telling reporters Wilson's wife worked at the CIA but your source was a reporter rather than the Vice-President? A. No, it's a fact. It was a fact, that's what I told the reporters.  Q. And you're, you're certain as you sit here today that every reporter you told that Wilson's wife worked at the CIA, you sourced it back to other reporters? A. Yes, sir, because it was important for what I was saying and because it was -- that's what -- that's how I did it. indictment    Q. The next set of questions from the Grand Jury are -- concern this fact. If you did not understand the information about Wilson's wife to have been classified and didn't understand it when you heard it from Mr. Russert, why was it that you were so deliberate to make sure that you told other reporters that reporters were saying it and not assert it as something you knew? A. I want -- I didn't want to -- I didn't know if it was true and I didn't want people -- I didn't want the reporters to think it was true because I said it. I -- all I had was that reporters are telling us that, and by that I wanted them to understand it wasn't coming from me and that it might not be true. Reporters write things that aren't true sometimes, or get things that aren't true. So I wanted to be clear they didn't, they didn't think it was me saying it. I didn't know it was true and I wanted them to understand that. Also, it was important to me to let them know that because what I was telling them was that I don't know Mr. Wilson. We didn't ask for his mission. That I didn't see his report. Basically, we didn't know anything about him until this stuff came out in June. And among the other things, I didn't know he had a wife. That was one of the things I said to Mr. Cooper. I don't know if he's married. And so I wanted to be very clear about all this stuff that I didn't, I didn't know about him. And the only thing I had, I thought at the time, was what reporters are telling us. indictment   Well, talking to the other reporters about it, I don't see as a crime. What I said to the other reporters is what, you know -- I told a couple reporters what other reporters had told us, and I don't see that as a crime.  3. In truth and fact, as LIBBY well knew when he gave this testimony, it was false in that LIBBY did not advise Matthew Cooper or other reporters that LIBBY had heard other reporters were saying that Wilson's wife worked for the CIA, nor did LIBBY advise Cooper or other   In violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1623. indictment    30.
