It turns out George Bush knew Karl Rove leaked Valerie Plame's name, despite assurances to the contrary. (Let's see if he's also lying about whether he'll fire the leaker, as previously stated.) Sen. Chuck Shumer writes a letter to Bush, urging him to—at last—come clean about what Rove said, how often the two spoke on the topic, and why the president didn't suspend the security clearance of someone who exposed the identity of a covert agent. More excellent coverage from Josh Marshall.
