Veep In Deep - No Peep...

Veep on the Plame: Cheney On 'Meet the Press'

By E&P Staff

Among other subjects, host Tim Russert questioned Vice President Cheney about his role in the Plame/CIA leak case on "Meet the Press" on Sunday.

Here is the relevant part of the transcript.

*RUSSERT: Let me turn back home, domestic politics, and talk about the whole situation involving Scooter Libby, your former chief of staff, who was indicted by Patrick Fitzgerald. This was a document that was released in the investigation. It's a New York Times op-ed piece with your handwriting on it. And that handwriting says, 'Or did his wife send him on a junket?' referring to Ambassador Joe Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, who was a CIA, CIA agent. Did you, in any way, authorize Scooter Libby to release her name or her occupation to the press?

CHENEY: Tim, Scooter Libby is, he's a good man. He's a friend of mine. He's somebody -- one of the most competent and capable people I've ever known. He's entitled to the presumption of innocence. But there is a legal matter pending, there is going to be a trial next year, I could well be a witness in the trial, and much as I would like to talk about, and I certainly have strong opinions about the case, I think it'd be totally inappropriate for me to do so.

RUSSERT: There was a story in the National Journal that Cheney authorized Libby to leak confidential information. Can you confirm or deny that?

CHENEY: I have the authority as vice president under executive order issued by the president to classify and declassify information. And everything I've done is consistent with those authorities . . . .

RUSSERT: Do you think the president should pardon Scooter Libby?

CHENEY: I've said all I'm going to say on the subject, Tim."

Pleading the fifth?

That is Cheney's damn problem..who the hell does he think he is? "Scooter is somebody", well-- la de da.

Frankly, Dick--- we don't give a shit. All of them have blood on their hands.

Get 'em, Mr. Fitz.

Whoa!

OK, so he can't say much. We saw that (especially those that watched MTP). Hrm... let me see, he has the right to declassify things. Ok. Cool! Great!

That's a lead. Did he, didn't he? Did he do it before or after? I'm going to have the hope that Fitz is looking at this already. I saw that as big though, and pleading the 5th? Come ON!!! Let's see, I remember a certain McClelland doing the same thing and it bit him in the face (pig nose unharmed).

What is our blogger name for McClelland, did we ever have one? Pig-nose is fitting.

Whatever, Cheney...Better hope that your pacemaker is not low on battery because your friend, half pint, will get his fitting for a orange jumpsuit. Cheney has to nerve to say that smurf is a good man when the fat butterball hasn't been at any of his friend's fundraiser.. That's the problem with Cheney. He has had his nose so stuck up in the air for 6 years and thought his sh*t stink that the house of cards are falling.. If Cheney had a brain, he better worry about which corporate business or business person will screw him over. With the GOP crumbling and the WH name is now mud, some one is lurking in the bushes that wants to replace Big Dick Cheney as the big honcho! That is what corporate businesses do: always looking to take over someone's position...

If you referring to Scott McClellan, we used to call him either Scotty McFelon, Snotty Scotty, or the little buckeroo! LOL!

McFelon was a lot better than Chrissy Snowjob!

No new target letters, no new indictments and no black tuesdays for Neocons. Just one lone indictment for a man with a bad memory. Even Libby will get off from this sham of an investigation. Fitzgerald should be ashamed of himself.

We would put you in a witness protection and out of the country before that ever happens! LOL! IRS needs to seriously relook at Cheney's last year tax return especially the section that written off about Hurricane Katrina and then getting a rufund back in the millions.. And how about doing an audit on the Halliburton Co. too especially the executives buying chios and dip for a Super Bowl party on the taxpayer dime?

Nightowl:

McFelon was better for me. I just got a kick out of him when David Gregory and Helen Thomas grilled the little buckeroo.. Snowjob is an asswipe. And I wonder if Snowjob ever gotten his security clearance card? LOL!

Although he may be able to give up the ghost(snitch and rattle on some higher ups) for a lighter sentence...

Time will tell if he gets killed in Prison for what he knows or not...

Oh, do me a favor...I'd like to know who's girlfriend he becomes, can ya arrange letting us know that ?

I like Prison love stories, don't you ?

Noe said he arranged the scheme because “in 2003 I was pressured by Bush-Cheney officials to become a Pioneer,” a name the campaign gives to people who raise $100,000.

Come on, GEF!

You are speaking to a 100% all beef! Prison love stories? Don't you mean, brokeback moments in the prison.

For all I know, Noe may end up with Teabag (the character in the show Prison Break which in prison for life for child molester)! people like that need some love.. And Noe better watch out! But, he doesn't get killed in prison, he will end being somebody's freak.. I can certainly picture many broke back moments in prison with the evildoers on your list. LOL!

Well at least Noe will get his wish..

He'll be 'Pioneering' the new license plates for more than 2 years..

The real tradgety is finding out his wife has left him and ran away with either another evildoer or the lawyer for the defense...

But what's an evildoer moll to do right ?!

Some friend Cheney busted Libby's defence on Meet the Press. Now what will the future jurors think when Libby says he has memory lost as the Vice President his boss says he's the most competent and capable person he knows. I notice Tim never said anything about the civil suit.
