Does a felon Rove the White House?
Allegations are swirling that Karl Rove, senior political adviser to President George W. Bush, may have committed a felony by blowing the cover of a CIA operative. CIA Director George Tenet has called on the Justice Department to investigate but the White House said Monday that “President George W. Bush has no plans to ask his staff members whether they played a role.”
Two weeks ago Democracy Now! aired Wilsonâ€™s comments before a suburban Seattle audience that he believes Bushâ€™s closest aide, Karl Rove, told reporters that Wilsonâ€™s wife was a CIA agent.
At the forum Wilson declared, “At the end of the day, it’s of keen interest to me to see whether or not we can get Karl Rove frog-marched out of White House in handcuffs.” Wilson added, “And trust me when I use that name, I measure my words.”
