WASHINGTON - Presidential confidant Karl Rove testified to a grand jury that he learned the identity of a CIA operative originally from journalists, then informally discussed the information with a Time magazine reporter days before the story broke, according to a person briefed on the testimony.Am I the only person who realizes that it doesn't matter how Rove found out? Rove simply shouldn't have disclosed anything at all.
His response should have been "I don't know" or "I can't comment on that." When Rove confirmed it or commented in any way, he broke the law. He disclosed it and therefore broke the law and it really doesn't matter how he found out.
It may clear his boss (Cheney) or his child (Bush) of any wrongdoing but it doesn't clear him.
This pathetic cover story is a red herring folks. It's as simple as that.
