Sound Destruction: IS IT A CRIME?

Mr. Cooper said in his article that Mr. Rove did not mention the name of Mr. Wilson's wife, Valerie Wilson, or say that she was a covert officer. But, he wrote: "Was it through my conversation with Rove that I learned for the first time that Wilson's wife worked at the C.I.A. and may have been responsible for sending him? Yes. Did Rove say that she worked at the 'agency' on 'W.M.D.'? Yes. Is any of this a crime? Beats me."

what do you think? is it a crime?

I suspect Rove knew where the legal line was and stayed just on the right side of it, so probably not a crime just corrupt and immoral.

Crime is defined by those in power, my friends. Murder isn't murder if it's ordered by the President. Theft isn't theft if it's done by a police officer. Rove hasn't committed any crime because he's on the same team as those who decide what crimes are.

Does that make him right? Nah...

Geeeeesh, it's so frustrating the way this administration insists on treating us like blithering idiots!! I suppose next we'll hear Bush say he'll fire anyone connected to this scandal so long as their last name doesn't start with an R and end with an E. I can only hope the GOP who've been towing the line can recognize it too and are fed up with being played too.

Doesn't matter, Bush will pardon him and let him come back to work for him. He already raised the bar for firing him, so we now know for sure he picked personal loyalty over national security. Great message from the Commander in Chief...

As for the particular crime referenced in the post, I doubt he's got any real legal culpability. Moral or ethical, oh, you betcha as they say in 'Soter (Minnesota slang fascinates me for some reason tonight).

Perjury or obstruction of justice? Now those are crimes I think he can be charged with and convicted of.

Haha, Sar. The old R..E exception. I heard congress passed it.

Rove looks as if he smells slightly of ham.

I've said it before: if Rove is "Bush's Brain," shouldn't he be smaller?
