Valerie Plame swearing in House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Valerie Plame lied under oath! You won’t see it on CNN or MSNBC and you probably won’t see it in any major newspaper but she lied and we have it on record.
Do you remember all of the Democrat calls for Karl Rove’s sworn testimony regarding the outing of Plame? Political foes wanted sworn testimony so that Rove could be prosecuted if it could be proven that Rove’s testimony was perjurious regarding Ms. Plame.
Well Democrats have made what is perhaps the
stupidest political blunder in recent history. You remember the hearings. Everyone was oowing and aahing over how glamorous Plame was.
Yes Democrats were so anxious to embarrass the Bush administration, that House Democrats held an unnecessary Oversight and Government Reform Committee to re-investigate the outing of Valerie Plame over and above special persecutor Patrick Fitzgerald’s two year investigation which did not uncover that President Bush, Vice President Cheney or Karl Rove outed Plame.
The only thing that Fitzgerald was able to do in two years of investigation was to get I. Scooter Libby to perjure himself and Libby is scheduled to be sentenced on June 5th before U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton.
Fitzgerald's investigation was completely unnecessary because at the beginning of his two year investigation Fitzgerald knew that it was Richard Armitage that outed Plame.
For three years, Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald knew the answer to one of the biggest questions in Washington: Who leaked the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame?
Now that former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage acknowledged this week that he was the leaker, the new question is what Fitzgerald has been looking for during a quest that rattled the White House and sent a reporter to jail. -- Matt Apuzzo
In spite of this, Democrats wanted to persist in the farce that the White house outed Plame thinking that all Americans are stupid. And on invitation from the Democrats Ms. Plame’s testimony was sworn.
Did Valerie Plame’s testimony embarrass the White House? Yes, yes it did it was high political drama. But there is a problem.
As embarrassing to the White House as Valerie Plame’s sworn testimony was Ms. Plame perjured herself under oath!
Here are Plame's three versions of how Wilson was sent to Niger:
•She told the CIA's inspector general in 2003 or 2004 that she had suggested Wilson.
•Plame told Senate Intelligence Committee staffers in 2004 that she couldn't remember whether she had suggested Wilson.
•She told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in March that an unidentified person in Vice President Cheney's office asked a CIA colleague about the African uranium report in February 2002. A third officer, overhearing Plame and the colleague discussing this, suggested, "Well, why don't we send Joe?" Plame told the committee.
Yet in the original CIA report it is reported that it was Plame that suggested her husband Joseph Wilson IV to her superiors. Three or four stories none the same and now telling different accounts under oath why that’s perjury!
Some CPD officials could not recall how the office decided to contact the former ambassador, however, interviews and documents provided to the committee indicate that his wife, a CPD employee, suggested his name for the trip. The CPD reports officer told Committee staff that the former ambassador’s wife “offered up his name” and a memorandum to the Deputy Chief of the CPD on February 12, 2002, from the former ambassador’s wife says, “my husband has good relations with both the PM [prime minister] and the former Minister of Mines (not to mention lots of French contacts), both of whom could possibly shed light on this sort of activity.”
This was just one day before CPD sent a cable requesting concurrence with CPD’s idea to send the former ambassador to Niger and requesting any additional information from the foreign government service on their uranium reports.
The former ambassador’s wife told Committee staff that when CPD decided it would like to send the former ambassador to Niger, she approached her husband on behalf of the CIA and told him “there’s this crazy report” on a purported deal for Niger to sell uranium to Iraq.
Patrick Fitzgerald is recommending that I. Scooter Libby serve up to 3 years for perjuring himself. Valerie Plame raised her hand and swore to tell the truth and lied bold face before House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, a Congressional hearing, the same body that wanted Karl Rove to testify before it under oath.
Nope you won’t hear about this on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN or any of the MSM print media and you can bet money that Democrats won’t persecute or prosecute the lovely Valerie Plame for lying before Congress no I’m sure they’re saving all of their prosecutorial zeal for the those ugly Republicans like Scooter Libby and the seven Republicans that they are investigating now.
I would say hypocrisy but since when has that charge changed a Democrats mind? Valerie Plame deserves the same treatment that Karl Rove would have received had he lied before Congress and the American people should demand that Ms. Plame receive the same!
