"Bolton was involved (in Plame leak) through Fred Fleitz. Read Henry Waxman's letter to Chris Shays, dated March 1, 2005 in which he mentions this involvement and the likelihood that Bolton mislead the SFRC about having been questioned in connection with a criminal investigation.(Plame). The SFRC found out that Bolton lied to them on his questionaire.
Since he was the first person in the State dept to receive the Niger forgeries and involved through Fleitz in getting the 16 words into the State Dept Memo, he had plenty of motive and has a reputation for acting on his own and retaliating against anyone who disagrees with him. Also, according to David Wurmser and John Hannah's testimony to Fitz, Bolton is who told Cheney that Plame was undercover. Check it out."

Oh. So Karl Rove got a pass? Really? Where's the letter? Seems none of the mainstream media can get their story straight. Some report there is a letter from Patrick Fitzgerald, but none have seen it. Some say there was a phone call. Really? Let's see the phone records. Others say there was a fax. Okay, where's the damn fax.
What is amazing is that Jason Leopold gets vilified and yet, when it comes to the mainstream media, everyone gives these cretins a pass. Sorry. Jason reports there is a sealed indictment. Lufkin claims otherwise. Lufkin claims to have proof but won't put it on the table.
I'm with Christy Hardin Smith at FireDogLake.com. Until Patrick Fitzgerald calls off the dogs that Porcine Ass called Rove ought to worry about who he might be getting up close and personal with in jail.
"If I had to guess, I'd say Fitzgerald has Libby conversing with Novak, possibly even has the full IIPA violation. But that he's holding off to try to get to Dick.
Or that's what I hope, anyway."
