CIA agent leak leading to Rove

Vermont Guardian | July 7, 2005

WASHINGTON — Karl Rove, the political mastermind known as “Bush’s Brain,” has been named as one of the White House officials who leaked the identity of CIA agent Valeria Plame, according to Newsweek magazine and senior MSNBC political analyst Lawrence O'Donnell.

Citing lawyers involved in the case, Newsweek has reported that e-mails surrendered by Time magazine to a grand jury indicate that Rove was one of the sources. On the syndicated McLaughlin Group political talk show, O'Donnell last week claimed to know that Rove’s name is mentioned in notes written by Time reporter Matt Cooper.

Other panelists suggested that, if true, this might mean a perjury right for Rove if he told the grand jury he didn’t leak to Cooper.

An attorney for Rove, Robert Luskin, told Newsweek that his client "never knowingly disclosed classified information" and "did not tell any reporter that Valerie Plame worked for the CIA." Plame’s husband, diplomat Joseph Wilson, angered the Bush administration when he claimed that statements by the President and others that Iraq was attempting to buy yellowcake Uranium were erroneous.

Cooper and New York Times reporter Judith Miller have been ordered to testify or face prison. Both indicated they would rather go to jail than reveal their sources, but Time subsequently agreed to hand over internal e-mails, largely correspondence between editors and Matt Cooper, along with his notes on the leak.

It’s a federal crime to deliberately reveal the identity of an undercover CIA official. A special prosecutor was appointed to investigate the leak and began subpoenaing reporters to find the source. In a case argued before the Supreme Court, attorneys for Miller and Cooper argued that the Constitution shields them from having to testify before the grand jury. The high court refused to hear the case.
