But Of Course...

Newsweek, yawn. Michael Isikoff is playing catch up.

Will Rove Testify?

Wow, for all the talk about this being a White House that prides itself on loyalty and discipline, you’re not seeing much of it,” the lawyer said.

"On its face, Fleischer’s account seems to contradict the repeated public assertions of his immediate successor, Scott McClellan, in October 2003 that nobody at the White House was in any way involved in the leak of Plame’s identity. It also potentially puts Bartlett, one of the president’s senior and most trusted advisers, on the hot seat. If Bartlett backs up Fleischer, it suggests he himself played a role in passing along radioactive information that triggered a criminal investigation that has plagued the White House for more than four years. If he contradicts Fleischer, it raises questions about the credibility of a man who was President Bush’s chief spokesman for the first two and a half years of his presidency. His lawyer declined to comment on what Bartlett will say.

But either way, it’s not a scenario that anybody at the White House can be looking forward to." <

Newsweek is a little late and a dollar short about Rove. If Rove is on e of the immunized witness, he better tell the truth on the stand. Otherwise, Rove will need his henchmen, Luskin.

I keep thinking about Fitz vs Cheney as the scene in A few good men. I want the truth / you can't handle the truth.
Yes Cheney will challenge Fitzgerald and then we will see a real show. Fitz can remember at will Cheney gets upset and has to write notes to remember, not to mention he falls a sleep at will. Now Wells will suck up because he doesn't want Cheney to say to much. I think Cheney is looking forward to the face to face meeting with Patrick J. Fitzgerald. We will hear things from Cheney we shouldn't hear. Cheney is use to being in charge and he will blow a vessel when he has to answer questions from Fitz.

Top o' the mornin' all....


Yes, Jackie...won't it be interesting. Mr. Cheney sure thinks he knows it all. I can hardly wait for:

SP Fitzgerald: Were you responsible for telling Mr. Libby about the CIA status of Ms. Plame?

VP Cheney: You know, Pat, that question is really out of line!

He just thinks he has all the answers and there isn't anyone he can't "handle". Good luck with that!
