Plame Game - Oh, Those "Lawyers Close to the Case!"

The Plame Game marches on!

This story over the weekend we read this from Time Magazine that one of their own, reporter Viveca Novak had agreed to testify at Fitzgerald's Fantasy Island about her conversations with Karl Rove's attorneys. This of course has re-kindled the fire in Chris Matthew's belly - howbeit the same cannot be said for his ratings.

But moreover, this news also sends that ever present group, the "Lawyers close to the case" sprinting to their cell phones because according to them this could only mean that it's " a sign that prosecutors are still exploring charges against the White House aide."

However, before we go into that, let's examine this group of "Lawyers close to the case", a group which first surfaced in the OJ Trial and have hung around every "trial of the century" since.

First, for veracity sake, we should examine their track record.

According to my modest scorecard of their performance during Fitzmas - on the whole, I would say that they were neither close, nor in many cases in the same neighborhood of their "22 indictment" predictions. This was evident as Fitzgerald only indicted Libby on basically a "he said/she said/they said", type of perjury/obstruction case, yet, and this is important - not on the leak - which for all intents and purposes is a dead issue.

Yet that doesn't stop the "lawyers close to the case" from finding the proverbial "Tempest in a Turnip", which is about what Novak's testimony probably will amount to. The one thing I can tell you for absolute certainty is that Fitizgerald is in no way looking at anything close to a "leak charge". If anything (and that's a big "IF"), additonal charges (if any) would be about the same as what was rendered at Libby. Anyone who is telling you something other than that is well, full of crap.

There is another angle though, one that you only have to ask yourself, "Where in the world is...?"


Oh, and by the way, I got that from a lawyer that I know (family member) who REALLY is close to the case.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Able Danger - Pulling Back the Covers of the real Clinton Legacy

First, let's dispense with the bull crap. The meeting between Mohammed Atta and Iraqi Intelligence officer Al-Ani, on April 8th, 2001 happened.

Yet, just don't mention it to the MSM, becaue since May of 2002, the MSM declared an all out assault on the story. A meeting incidently, that the Czech government has to this date stood by.

Let's review a little history:

October 13, 2001: Story of the meeting is leaked from somewhere in the Czech foreign service.

yet.....

October 20, 2001: Ny Times, John Tagliabue writes a story citing other Czech officials said the meeting never took place.

so.....

October 26, 2001: Czech Minister of the Interior, Stanislav Gross has a press conference not only confirming the orginal report but giving further details of Atta's other trip to Prague in June 2000.

then.....

October 27, 2001: The NY Times "recants" the October 20th denial.

The story continues it's oddessy of 'back and forth' until May 1st, 2002, when Walter P…
