Patrick Fitzgerald Ignored Witnesses who Contradicted Wilson

by Mark5019 / November 10, 2005 8:10 AM PST

Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald's Leakgate investigation is coming unraveled, as witness after witness steps forward to challenge a key premise of his controversial probe.

Was the identity of Joseph Wilson's wife Valerie Plame really a deep dark secret before she was "outed" by columnist Robert Novak in July 2003?

The number of witnesses now saying "No" has climbed to four - and none of them have apparently been interviewed by Fitzgerald's investigators.

so why was libby in trouble seems to me its a bs indictment

What is really strange is that...

Andrea Mitchell worker UNDER Russert who claims he didn't know until Libby told him.

Since Mitchell knew (and knew that others in similar position also did), that would tend to indicate that Russert is either lying, has a faulty memory, or is far more incompetant than thought and should be replaced by one of his underlings who is more aware of what is going on.

Something else to consider is that it actually made the news that $1000 of the $2000 that Wilson donated to the Gore Campaign was returned to him and that IMMEDIATELY after the return his wife, using the name Valerie Plame and the FEC campaign disclosure statement shows she is employed with a company in the called Brewster-Jennings & Associates as an "analyst"--So far so good. A quick check though shows NO such company anywhere in the DC area where she lives--D&B lists it at 101 Arch St Boston (HELL of a commute!) but the office complex located there has NEVER had a business by that name located there and no city license has ever been issued to any such company to do business (and if it had customers would still have had problems because it has also NEVER HAD A PHONE!). That is a pretty normal FEC check to make sure donations are legitimate. By the way, Dunn & Bradstreet list the business - Brewster-Jennings & Associates - as a "legal services" office with annual revenue of $60,000, a single employee and a CEO named "Victor Brewster, Partner"--that by the way is an old time signature (CIA and NSA both) of a "Front" Company.

the numerous times (AFTER her 1994 return to the US after it was considered that Aldrich Ames likely compromised her - http://www.cia.gov/cia/public_affairs/press_release/1995/ps103195.html) that Wilson paraded her around Washington "gatherings" as "my CIA wife".

Another interesting read that shows how the media flipped and flopped on the "outing" when they were aware and had written at least one story about the CIA having already "outed" Plame and others to Fidel Castro.

Something else interesting and thought provoking is the following article that points out that Novak NEVER stated Plame was a "covert agent"--he said she was "an Agency operative on weapons of mass destruction and that the FIRST PERSON who appears to have referred to Plame as a "covert agent" was none other than David Corn in The Nation. Yep, the same David Corn who is a notorious Bush Basher.
