Report: Rove was Cooper's 'secret source'

UPI | July 11 2005

WASHINGTON -- Deputy White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove was Time magazine correspondent Matt Cooper's "secret source," Newsweek reported.

Rove's lawyer has confirmed that the top Bush adviser was the secret source who gave Cooper permission to testify before a grand jury investigating the disclosure of the name of CIA cover operative Valerie Plame case, Newsweek reported reported Sunday.

The last-minute consent allowed Cooper to avoid going to jail for contempt of court.

A federal prosecutor has been investigating the leak of Plame's identity in 2003.

Newsweek obtained a copy of an e-mail that Cooper sent to his bureau chief after speaking to Rove, three days before the leak was first reported by columnist Robert Novak.

"Nothing in the Cooper e-mail suggests that Rove used Plame's name or knew she was a covert operative," said the magazine. "Nonetheless, it is significant that Rove was speaking to Cooper before Robert Novak's column appeared; in other words, before Valerie Plame's identity had been published."

Rove has insisted that he did not leak Plame's name
