July 12, 2005 -- ROVEGATE -- With the Washington main stream media's newly-found
focus on Karl Rove and the leak of highly classified information on the CIA, a
few issues are being missed. First, some members of the Washington media were
not acting as journalists in the Plame/Brewster Jennings leaks but as purveyors
of White House information and providers of classified information to the White
House to discredit Amb. Joseph Wilson and his wife. That is why the special prosecutor
has been so aggressive against journalists who may have been involved in much
more than mere news reporting. Informed sources claim that the investigation has
gone from looking at what Karl Rove told Robert Novak (word is that Rove may have
used a media intermediary to spread details on Plame and BJ&A to Novak and
others) to a criminal conspiracy involving other White House officials, including
Lewis "Scooter" Libby and, specifically, Vice President Dick Cheney.
Second, Rove was called before the grand jury three times (not including his late
2004 requested meeting with the special prosecutor). This indicates he is far
more than a "person of interest" at this stage.
