Karl Rove: It wasn't me!

March 9, 2004 1:37 PM

Murray Waas has a scoop on Rove's testimony to the FBI regarding the Valerie Plame outing.

Rove also adamantly insisted to the FBI that he was not the administration official who leaked the information that Plame was a covert CIA operative to conservative columnist Robert Novak last July. Rather, Rove insisted, he had only circulated information about Plame after it had appeared in Novak's column. He also told the FBI, the same sources said, that circulating the information was a legitimate means to counter what he claimed was politically motivated criticism of the Bush administration by Plame's husband, former Ambassador Joseph Wilson.

Legitimate means! This is consistent with what Rove told reporters last Fall, saying Wilson's wife was "fair game."
