No one will ever accuse Karl Rove of being a straight-talker. David Corn, of The Nation asked Rove about why Scott McClellan told the White House press corp he had no role in the CIA leak.
Corn: David Corn from “The Nation Magazine” on a different subject. Scott McClellan told the White House press corps, many who are here today, that he had spoken to you and you were not involved in the CIA leak. Can you explain why the American public, almost two and a half years later, hasn’t been given an explanation and don’t you think it deserves one for that misinformation because it does seem you were to some degree, though maybe disputed, involved in that leak?
Rove: My attorney Mr. Luskin made a statement on April 26th. I refer to you that statement. I have nothing more to add to it. Nice try, though.
Can't you feel the candor?
