Rove Testifies Again in CIA Leak Probe

“... The appearance, Rove's fourth since the investigation began in 2003, amounted to the last chance for the presidential confidant and architect of Bush's election wins to convince the jury that he did nothing wrong.

Prosecutors had warned Rove before his latest testimony that there was no guarantee he will not be indicted. The grand jury's term is due to expire Oct. 28.

After Rove's testimony, White House spokesman Scott McClellan was asked whether Rove still has the president's confidence. He would say only, ``Karl continues to do his duties.''

McClellan said he was declining to comment on all questions that touched on the grand jury matter. ``The president made it very clear, we're not going to comment on an ongoing investigation,'' he told reporters.

The White House has shifted from categorical denials two years ago that Rove or Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, were involved in the leak of a covert CIA officer's identity to ``no comment'' today.

McClellan on Friday rejected suggestions that the investigation of two key players was distracting the White House. ...”

UPI: Rove faces for more grand jury quizzing

WASHINGTON, DC, United States (UPI) -- Karl Rove faces for more grand jury testimony, latest in the series of unwanted disruptions for President Bush`s second term.

The White House is said to be preparing for the possibility that Rove, deputy chief of staff and architect of Bush`s presidency, or other officials could be indicted in the next two weeks, The Washington Post said Friday.

Rove has been preoccupied with his legal troubles, a diversion that some say contributed to the troubled handling of Harriet Miers` nomination to the Supreme Court.

Bush`s main partners on Capitol Hill, House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Tex., and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., likewise are spending time defending themselves as the president`s legislative initiatives founder.

Most of the scandals have little direct connection with one another, but their accumulation in a compressed period has challenged a White House already beset by political problems from the Iraq war, Hurricane Katrina and high gasoline prices, the Post said.

Americans betting Rove's White House days are numbered: offers updated odds on Karl Rove's future in the Bush Administration after final grand jury testimony

With Karl Rove's future as White House Deputy Chief of Staff in serious doubt, is the only online sportsbook to offer updated odds on the long-running scandal that continues to plague the Bush Administration. Current odds are 1-2 that Rove will have to leave the White House in the wake of an ongoing criminal investigation, and 3-2 that he will not.

Speculation on Rove's job security intensified when the indispensable Bush adviser was called to testify yesterday for the fourth time before a federal grand jury. At issue is whether Rove knowingly leaked the identity of a covert CIA operative to reporters in an effort to discredit an outspoken critic of the administration's war in Iraq. According to investigation insiders, prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is also trying to determine whether Rove lied after the fact to conceal his involvement in the leak.

The significant shift from the opening odds of 1-6 that Rove would not be dismissed or resign is a reflection of the grand jury's increased focus on Rove and of the growing consensus that he will not emerge unscathed. Recent testimony from jailed New York Times reporter Judith Miller may have given the grand jury reason to doubt previous statements made by Rove regarding the leak.

Even if Rove is not indicted, many political observers feel the president may nevertheless be forced to sac his top adviser to preserve the administration's credibility. Since updated odds were posted yesterday, betting trends indicate that Americans are leaning towards the view that Rove will leave the White House.

<>"Everyone loves to bet, but not everyone bets on sports. So it's important for us to provide Americans with the opportunity to wager on other hot button items like politics and entertainment," says Alex Czajkowski, Marketing Director,

Casino Royale, previously known by its working title Bond 21, will be the 21st James Bond film produced by EON Productions. Based on the 1953 novel Casino Royale by Ian Fleming, it will be the first Bond film to take its title from an Ian Fleming novel or short story since 1987's The Living Daylights. Currently the film is in pre-production, and is set for release on November 17, 2006. Included in the press release for the announcement of the film title, EON Productions also announced that Martin Campbell, director of the 1995 Bond film, GoldenEye, is attached to direct.

Even though production is not expected to begin until January 2006, the film has generated considerable media interest due to the fact that EON Productions had gone over a year without an actor signed to play James Bond, and had refrained from commenting on the search. An official announcement was made during a news conference in London on Friday October 14, 2005 announcing Daniel Craig as James Bond.

This film marks the third screen-adaptation of Ian Fleming's novel Casino Royale, which was previously a 1954 television episode and a 1967 film spoof; however, the 2006 release will be the only official adaptation of Fleming's novel.

IMO - Judy Miller is up there with Novak as an American Traitor. The Plame affair was payback for Wilson revealing her as a lying ratbag warmonger. Pictures follow:

The Plame Affair (aka. CIA leak scandal, Plame scandal, or Plamegate1) is the common term for an ongoing United States political scandal which has origins in the Iraq disarmament crisis of late 2002, and concerned the identification of Valerie Plame, wife of retired ambassador Joseph C. Wilson, as a CIA "operative on weapons of mass destruction" in a July 2003 column by conservative punditRobert Novak. Novak's column was published only eight days after the publication of a New York Times op-ed written by Wilson, which was highly critical of the Bush administration's use of "unreliable" "yellowcake" documents as part of its rationale for the Iraq War.

Wilson claims that Novak had conspired with Bush administration sources to expose his wife's identity as political retribution for his earlier criticism. Divulging the identity of an undercover CIA agent is, in some circumstances, a federal crime in the United States.

The Plame Affair includes the subsequent Independent Council investigation by special appointee Patrick Fitzgerald into the actions of Bush administration officials —including Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, Ari Fleischer, and unknown others— regarding their knowledge of the leak of Plame's identity. In addition to Novak, six other journalists are reported to have known Plame's identity before the Novak column was published, including NBC's Tim Russert, and Judith Miller of The New York Times, who spent 85 days in jail for failing to divulge the identity of her confidential administration source to a grand jury.

Media commentary

Judith Miller has drawn support from some journalists, and in particular the editorial page of the New York Times, for the right to keep her sources a secret and for what she has consistently maintained is a principled defense of the First Amendment.

Miller has also been characterized by some (notably syndicated columnist and blogger Arianna Huffington) as a possible co-conspirator with the Bush Administration in the attempt to discredit former Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson, who openly questioned the intelligence used to justify the 2003 Invasion of Iraq.[1][2] Columnist Margaret Kimberly wrote "[Miller] isn’t protecting a whistle blower. She is protecting someone who retaliated against a whistle blower."[3] Predicting in an August 8, 2005 interview with radio host Don Imus that other employees of the New York Times would soon be subpoenaed by Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald, James Carville speculated "[i]t's going to be very interesting to see whether [Miller's] problem is a First Amendment [problem] — i.e., I want to protect a source — or a Fifth Amendment [problem] — I was out spreading this stuff, too."[4]

In the days since Miller's release from prison and her wavier from a promise of confidentiality from her source, media observers have criticized Miller and the New York Times for not publishing Miller's role in the Plame-Wilson leak, not even to explain why the full story can not now be revealed. The lawyer for Scooter Libby told the media that Miller was advised over a year ago that she could testify about her conversations with Libby.One columnist has reported that Miller has a pending million dollar book deal on the Plame leak story.[5] [6] [7][8]

Sparky: CIA Leak

Quantity is Quality - more in the series of smaller blurts ...

This interview with Ambassador Wilson.
“My understanding is that shortly thereafter, a meeting was held - sometime in March of 2003 - in the offices of the Vice President at which it was decided to do a “work up” on me. A work up means to run an intel op to glean all the information you can about “me.” My understanding is that at a minimum, [Cheney's chief of staff] Scooter Libby was at this meeting.

But in retrospect looking at this, the natural group [of people] who would meet to discuss something like this would be the White House Iraq Group (WHIG).

Raw Story: Right, and the group includes Karl Rove as part of that main group of six.

Wilson: Yes, that would include Rove. I believe it is Rove, Karen Hughes, Libby, and others.

Raw Story: Also: Andrew Card, Mary Matlin and James Wilkinson as well as others who advised then-National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice and her deputy Stephen Hadley.

Wilson: That would be the natural group because they were constituted to spin the war, so they would be naturally the ones to try to deflect criticism. Now, some of those people would have very high security clearances. ...”

Newsweek: Michael Isikoff: CIA Leak: Karl Rove and the Case of the Missing E-mail

Oct. 17, 2005 issue

She should have stayed in jail - she has aided evil and must answer to the maimed and slain American Troops she has a shared responsibility for.
The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
The White House's handling of a potentially crucial e-mail sent by senior aide Karl Rove two years ago set off a chain of events that has led special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald to summon Rove for a fourth grand jury appearance this week. His return has created heightened concern among White House officials and their allies that Fitzgerald may be preparing to bring indictments when a federal grand jury that has been investigating the leak of a CIA agent's identity expires at the end of October. Robert Luskin, Rove's lawyer, tells NEWSWEEK that, in his last conversations with Fitzgerald, the prosecutor assured Luskin "he has not made any decisions."
The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
But lawyers close to the case, who asked not to be identified because it's ongoing, say Fitzgerald appears to be focusing in part on discrepancies in testimony between Rove and Time reporter Matt Cooper about their conversation of July 11, 2003. In Cooper's account, Rove told him the wife of White House critic Joseph Wilson worked at the "agency" on WMD issues and was responsible for sending Wilson on a trip to Niger to check out claims that Iraq was trying to buy uranium. But Rove did not disclose this conversation to the FBI when he was first interviewed by agents in the fall of 2003—nor did he mention it during his first grand jury appearance, says one of the lawyers familiar with Rove's account. (He did not tell President George W. Bush about it either, assuring him that fall only that he was not part of any "scheme" to discredit Wilson by outing his wife, the lawyer says.) But after he testified, Luskin discovered an e-mail Rove had sent that same day—July 11—alerting deputy national-security adviser Stephen Hadley that he had just talked to Cooper, the lawyer says. In the e-mail, Rove said Cooper pushed him on whether the president was being hurt by the Niger controversy. "I didn't take the bait," Rove wrote Hadley, adding that he warned Cooper not to get "far out in front on this." After reviewing the e-mail, Rove then returned to the grand jury last year and reported the Cooper conversation. He testified that the talk was initially about "welfare reform"—a topic mentioned in the e-mail—and that Cooper then changed the subject. Cooper has written that he doesn't recall a discussion of welfare reform.

Why didn't the Rove e-mail surface earlier? The lawyer says it's because an electronic search conducted by the White House missed it because the right "search words" weren't used. (The White House and Fitzgerald both declined to comment.) But the e-mail isn't the only belatedly discovered document in the case. Fitzgerald has also summoned New York Times reporter Judith Miller back for questioning this week: a notebook was discovered in the paper's Washington bureau, reflecting a late June 2003 conversation with Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis (Scooter) Libby, about Wilson and his trip to Africa, says one of the lawyers. The notebook may also be significant because Wilson's identity was not yet public. A lawyer for the Times declined to comment. For GOP, Election Anxiety Mounts - Candidates Need Convincing for '06

"We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability," he said, though he later backed away from the suggestion of assassination, stating he was taken out of context.

On October 10, 2005 Robertson claimed recent natural disasters (Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Rita Hurricane Stan and the Kashmir Earthquake) around the globe point to the end of the world and the imminent return of Jesus Christ.

Robertson claimed that "It's possible. I don't have any special revelation to say it is but the Bible does indicate such a time will happen in the end of time. And could this be it? It might be." [1]

Robertson, who caused an uproar in August by suggesting Chavez should be killed, said on CNN's "Late Edition" Sunday that the Venezuelan leader sent "either $1 million or $1.2 million in cash" to bin Laden after the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

"He's crazy, at the very least," said Rangel, adding that Robertson's comment should be analyzed by "a team of psychologists ... because it is so irrational."

Sparky: I'll take Rove Rage for a thousand Alex

Rove failed to tell grand jury information
A discrepancy between the grand jury testimony of Karl Rove and Time Magazine reporter Matthew Cooper is the reason Rove will testify again.

Newsweek reports investigators have found an e-mail confirming a meeting between Cooper and Rove, President Bush's top political adviser.

Rove failed to disclose the meeting both during a 2003 FBI interview and during his first appearance before a federal grand jury investigating the leak to the press of the identity of CIA agent Valerie Plame.

Rove will testify before the grand jury for a fourth time this week.

Cooper told the grand jury Rove disclosed the name of Plame and that she was the wife of former ambassador Joe Wilson -- who had recently written an op-ed in the New York Times challenging the White House claim that Iraq tried to buy uranium from Niger to make nuclear weapons.

The National Journal reported Friday Rove assured President Bush two years ago he did not leak the Plame's name.

Chicago Sun-Times: JOHN SOLOMON: Rove told Bush he didn't out covert CIA agent, sources say

WASHINGTON -- White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove told President Bush and others that he never engaged in an effort to disclose a CIA operative's identity to discredit her husband's criticism of the administration's Iraq policy, according to people with knowledge of Rove's account in the investigation.

They said Rove's denial to Bush occurred in fall 2003, a few months after media reports revealed that former Ambassador Joseph Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, worked as a covert CIA operative.

Those with knowledge of evidence gathered in the criminal investigation spoke on condition of anonymity because of grand-jury secrecy.

Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is wrapping up an investigation into whether Rove; Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, or other White House aides divulged Plame's identity in violation of federal law.

The probe also is examining whether Bush aides mishandled classified information, made false statements or obstructed justice.

Saturday, the New York Times and the Washington Post reported that Fitzgerald will meet Tuesday with freed Times reporter Judith Miller, who has compiled notes on a conversation she had with Libby. The conversation of June 25, 2003, is in addition to two others previously disclosed.

Rove is to testify before the grand jury for a fourth time -- without assurance he will avoid indictment.

The discussion with Bush did not get into specifics concerning Rove's contacts with Time magazine's Matthew Cooper and Chicago Sun-Times syndicated columnist Robert Novak, who wrote stories identifying Plame, the people familiar with Rove's account said. Mayank Chhaya: The US president as an instrument of god's will
“The deconstruction of President George W. Bush has been dizzyingly rapid in recent weeks. He would have been a tragic figure were he not so powerful.

There is now proof, if proof was ever needed, that Bush does everything under direct and explicit instruction from god. Going by that proof it is also quite clear that god is a micromanager whose sole task is to manage the US president.

The revelations by Palestinian negotiator Nabil Shaath on a BBC TV series about what Bush had said during the Israeli-Palestinian summit in June 2003 at Sharm al-Sheikh would have been discommoding had they not been in line with what one has come to expect of the world's most powerful man.

At a philosophical level one can understand that god, the universe's most powerful figure, would want to deal with the most powerful figure of an unspeakably small part of a mediocre galaxy. What is not understandable is that god would be so detailed and so explicit. ...”
