Cheney Told FBI He Had No Idea Who Leaked Plame ID
In the interview, whose participants included Fitzgerald, Cheney told agents that he did not recall having a conversation about either Plame or her husband with Bush.
The vice president said he probably discussed Wilson with Bush's top political adviser, Karl Rove, but told the FBI he would not have talked to Rove about Wilson's wife.
Cheney's denials that he talked about Plame are among the few things in the lengthy interview with the FBI that Cheney appeared certain about. He repeatedly said he could not recall key events. Among them, he said he did not recall discussing Wilson's wife with Libby before her CIA employment was publicly revealed by conservative columnist Robert Novak in mid-July 2003.
Evidence at Libby's criminal trial showed that Cheney had told Libby about Wilson's wife in mid-June 2003.
According to courtroom testimony, Rove was one of Novak's sources for his column disclosing Plame's CIA identity and Rove and Libby were sources for Time magazine reporter Matt Cooper, who also wrote a story identifying Plame.
Cheney said he was not aware of any discussions Libby may have had with Rove about Wilson or Wilson's wife, and Cheney said Libby did not tell him about any such discussions.
How many are not suprised the Cheney has come down with the same affliction as Alberto Gonzalas...the Old "I can't seem to recall those statements or events disease".
But Cheney does seem to have perfect memory of what he didn't do and what, in his mind he did do, and how it will affect our future if the President does not heed his warnings.
It is more than obvious that the guy is a pathetic criminal who is clawing at the walls to find any way out of the deep hole he had Bush dug for themselves.
