Lawrence O'Donnell: Karl Rove Leaked CIA Agent Valeria Plame's Identity

Posted by Frankie at 7/02/2005 12:33:00 AM

I just saw via AMERICAblog a post at Daily Kos by joc that Lawrence O'Donnell commented on the McLaughlin Group that Karl Rove leaked CIA agent Valeria Plame’s identity to Time Magazine's Matt Cooper.

Below is the text of Lawrence O'Donell's revelatory statement on McLaughlin Group today. He began talking about Time having to pay for holding the documents/emails, and not serving its shareholders by defying a (Supreme) court order. He ended with this:

"What we're going to go to now in the next stage, when Matt Cooper's emails-within Time Magazine, uh, are handed over to the grand jury is the ultimate revelation, probably within the week of who his source is. And I know I'm going to get pulled into the grand jury for saying this but the source of-for Matt Cooper was Karl Rove, and that will be revealed in this document dump that Time Magazine's going to do with the grand jury."

Update: Editor & Publisher has the story too.
Now that Time Inc. has turned over documents to federal court, presumably revealing who its reporter, Matt Cooper, identified as his source in the Valerie Plame/CIA case, speculation runs rampant on the name of that source, and what might happen to him or her. Tonight, on the syndicated McLaughlin Group political talk show, Lawrence O'Donnell, senior MSNBC political analyst, claimed to know that name--and it is, according to him, top White House mastermind Karl Rove.
