The Raw Story | New York Daily News source believes senior White House official has flipped in leak


http://rawstory.com/news/2005/New_York_Daily_News_to_claim_1017.html


The case of outed CIA agent Valerie Plame is set to explode.

The New York Daily News is set to report in Tuesday editions that a
well-placed source interviewed by the newspaper believes a senior
White House official has flipped and may be helping the prosecutor in
the case, RAW STORY has learned.

The Daily News will reveal that a top source believes that based on
the questioning of Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald and his other
contacts with the investigation, someone in the White House has
turned.

All eyes are on Dick Cheney, the News says, as the investigation wraps
up.…



I got the impression in the last few days that Fitzgerald was
preparing to get Karl Rove as a squealer—that this is why Rove's
lawyer said Rove was not 'the target' of the investigation. So my
uncertain guess is that Karl Rove has flipped.

I have long had another theory, that Ari Fleischer squealing regarding
what he knew led to Fitzgerald's appointment in the first place. Both
this and the preceding, however, are wagers I expect to lose. I'm not
surprised at all that Cheney is a focus now; after all, he and Libby
were personally 'spying' on the CIA, in a completely unheard-of
fashion.
