Rove Obstructing Justice?

A new report by investigative journalist Murray Waas has found that Justice officials decided to appoint a special prosecutor in the case of outted CIA agent Valerie Plame in a large part because investigators questioned the veracity of accounted Karl Rove provided them. When first questioned by the FBI, Rove neglected to tell FBI investigators that he had talked to Time reporter Matthew Cooper about Joe Wilson’s wife. While Rove claims that he learned of Plame’s identity during a conversation with a journalist, Waas found that when talking to FBI investigators, Rove was unable to recall virtually anything to investigators about the conversation, including who the journalist was, and whether the conversation took place in person or on the phone.
