Patrick Fitzgerald  go get a new grand jury and reopen this case but, this time include the others that were not implicated the first time. Remember they threw sand in the umpire’s eyes, so he could not see what was happening.

Patrick Leahy and Congressman Henry Waxman set up some hearings.

For those of you unfamiliar with the recent events, former white house spokesman Scott McClellan blamed the president and vice president for misleading the public in the CIA leak case.

In an excerpt from his forthcoming book, McClellan recounts the 2003 news conference in which he told reporters that aides Karl Rove and I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby were “not involved” in the leak involving operative Valerie Plame.

“There was one problem. It was not true,” McClellan writes, according to a brief excerpt released Tuesday. “I had unknowingly passed along false information. And five of the highest-ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice president, the president’s chief of staff and the president himself.”

Bush’s chief of staff at the time was Andrew Card.

The excerpt, posted on the Web site of publisher Public Affairs, renews questions about what went on in the West Wing and how much Bush and Cheney knew about the leak. For years, it was McClellan’s job to field—and often duck—those types of questions

We heard from conservatives on the rule of law but to date only Mike Huckabee thinks that the administration should have an answer for this new information. They can no longer stand behind Libby and say he could not recall because McClellan said he and five others lied.
