And was proved right by the fact that all Fitz got was a process charge for tripping up Scooter. Very similar to how most witch hunts end. There was no there, there....

    I agree, but this case may fit.

    So leaking nonpublic/classified information for political/personal gain is ok when republicans do it but not when democrats do it?

    That works if you ignore what Fitz said, that he was hindered by Libby, and therefore could not reach the truth.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Fitz knew that Armitage was the source at the beginning...He kept that to himself instead of announcing it solved to justify his own waste of money and time...As most SP's do. Fitz thought sure he was going to make a bigger name for himself, a once in a lifetime chance to nail a high level administration official....He tried everything he could to do that, even though he knew the outcome, and the fact that he knew the leaker early on, and kept going charging Scooter, and never charging Armitage the real leaker makes me wonder what deeper was going on here.

    Yeah. Espionage is a serious enough crime without trying to make it into treason.

    j-mac
    If he's guilty, he certainly should go to prison. As for the Plame case, there should have been more bodies in federal prison for that than the scapegoat who was ordered to fall on his sword.

    Treason isn't a partisian issue. Shame on those who continually try to make it one.
