"He [President Bush] made his displeasure known to Karl," a presidential counselor told The News. "He made his life miserable about this." ...President Bush was questioned by prosecutors regarding the Plame outing for over an hour in the Oval Office on June 24, 2004. The President was not under oath, or the title to this post would have questioned if President Bush also committed perjury. If it is true that the President knew that Rove or anyone else was involved with this leak, and did not inform the prosecutors of this, how would this not fit the definition of obstruction of justice?
...sources confirmed, however, that Bush was initially furious with Rove in 2003 when his deputy chief of staff conceded he had talked to the press about the Plame leak.
The question then is, did the President know who the leakers were? And did he tell this to the prosecutors. Is there anyone who really thinks he would tell the truth in this interview if he did know who leaked? If so... I have a bridge I'd like to sell you.
