BREAKING NEWS: Matt Cooper's source in Valerie Plame CIA case WAS Karl Rove
Lawerence O'Donnell for MSNBC has reported on the McLaughlin Group Friday night that the Time Magizine documents will show that Karl Rove was the source for Matt Cooper in the Valerie Plame CIA case.
Here is the transcript of O'Donnell's McLaughlin Group remarks:If you want to catch The McLaughlin Group, you'll have to catch it on PBS on Sunday and not NBC because tennis is on during it's time slot. I'll make sure I'll record it and post the video tomorrow.
"What we're going to go to now in the next stage, when Matt Cooper's e-mails, within Time Magazine, are handed over to the grand jury--the ultimate revelation, probably within the week of who his source is. "I know I'm going to get pulled into the grand jury for saying this but the source of...for Matt Cooper was Karl Rove, and that will be revealed in this document dump that Time magazine's going to do with the grand jury."
Other panelists then joined in discussing whether, if true, this would suggest a perjury rap for Rove, if he told the grand jury he did not leak to Cooper.
UPDATE: O'DOnnell has reconfirmed Rove as the source and is talking about it on his blog.
Someone is in trouble but you have to ask yourself, if it was Rove, who else in the White House knew about this? Other people MUST of known it was Rove or gave him the green light to "out" Plame. Rove and others in the White House told the FBI under questioning that they had nothing to do with the leak so did Rove commit prejury? If other people in the White House knew Rove was the source of the leak and kept it quiet, wouldn't that be obstruction of justice? Didn't the Republicans try to impeach another President because of prejury?
I revealed in yesterday's taping of the McLaughlin Group that Time magazine's emails will reveal that Karl Rove was Matt Cooper's source. I have known this for months but didn't want to say it at a time that would risk me getting dragged into the grand jury.
McLaughlin is seen in some markets on Friday night, so some websites have picked it up, including Drudge, but I don't expect it to have much impact because McLaughlin is not considered a news show and it will be pre-empted in the big markets on Sunday because of tennis.Since I revealed the big scoop, I have had it reconfirmed by yet another highly authoritative source. Too many people know this. It should break wide open this week. I know Newsweek is working on an 'It's Rove!' story and will probably break it tomorrow.
Oh my, this is going to get very interesting REAL soon.
