Hillary Calls For Firing Of Whoever Told Her To Call For Rove's FiringWants to prosecute leak that exonerated Rove of leaking
Clinton called for the swift and immediate dismissal of all
parties that made her call for Rove's firing. Vows to track down
Washington--Joining with other senate democrats, New York senator Hillary Rodham Clinton demanded the firing of "any behind the scenes movers and shakers responsible" for telling her to call for the firing of GOP strategist, Karl Rove.
Rove was considered by many to be the infamous "leak" in the Valerie Plame/CIA undercover identity scandal. He was literally vindicated from any wrongdoing by another leak germane to columnist Robert Novak.
Democrats now want to find the source of that leak.
"I went out on a limb, and called for the figurative head of Karl Rove, and now, suspiciously, comes this exculpatory evidence like this," said Clinton. "This above-board-ness fails the smell test if you ask me."
Many believe Rove masterfully orchestrated his own innocence by not involving himself in the Plame issue--through the classic technique of not knowing the information that was leaked.
"That hoary old chestnut is being played again," said Clinton. "Mr. Bush needs to come out and explain why Rove is hiding behind his innocence. We demand answers, and we demand them now. What did Rove not know, and when didn’t he know it."
