Justice probing White House leak of CIA officer’s identity
The U.S. Justice Department is investigating charges that administration officials leaked the identity of an undercover intelligence officer to a journalist in July, The Washington Post reported Sunday.
Administration officials said CIA Director George Tenet sent a memo to the Justice Department raising questions about the alleged leak, which could mean prison time and a fine, the Post reported.
Golly, I’m sure Ashcroft will follow the facts wherever they go, aren’t you?? However Justice was asked by the CIA to investigate, and this is getting major press, so Maximum John. Do you suppose if Ashcroft is forced to indict one of his pals he will demand the maximum penalty like he’s ordered his prosecutors to do on all cases?
