In a new article out this afternoon investigative journalist Murray Waas reports that in an FBI interview last October Karl Rove admitted that “he circulated and discussed damaging information regarding CIA operative Valerie Plame with others in the White House, outside political consultants, and journalists.”
Rove also apparently mentioned “at least six other administration officials who were involved in the effort to discredit Wilson.”
However, Rove insisted that he did this only after Plame’s name appeared in Novak’s column; and that he was not Novak’s source.
It’s great to know what Rove said. But let’s find out what folks in the Vice President’s office told the investigators — from the top of the org chart on down.
