The Valerie Plame affair could finally end the law enforcement career of former U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald. The man who prosecuted Bush administration official Lewis “Scooter” Libby in the “exposure” of CIA desk ranger Valerie Plame may be guilty of knowingly lying to the court.

Not only is former U.S Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald guilty of obstructing justice and lying to the court, you can add the crime of suborning perjury to the growing list of problems facing the man once touted as the modern day Elliot Ness.

When “Special Counsel” Patrick Fitzgerald put former Undersecretary of State Marc Grossman on the stand to testify in the trial of U.S. v Libby, Fitzgerald knowingly committed the crime of “suborning perjury.”

You see, thanks to FBI Whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, the Dept of Justice and Fitzgerald knew that it was Marc Grossman who exposed Brewster Jennings & Associates and Valerie Plame as CIA in the summer of 2001. And therefore, Fitzgerald knew the testimony Grossman was giving under oath in the Libby trial to be false.

Follow the links above. It’s interesting stuff, though Eric Holder’s DOJ is about as likely to act on it as an asteroid is likely to descend, land in the Pacific, and become a floating base for a supervillain. Holder is too busy pestering states that want to introduce voter ID to make sure their elections are sound and secure. A second Clinton administration, should America be foolish enough to allow that to happen, would be even less likely to act. In Democrat hands, the entire executive branch has become a partisan tool for oppressing political opponents and covering up their own misdeeds and scandals.

The Plame case was always a ginned up partisan witch hunt. The real story that lurked in the background, never explored sufficiently in the media or in court, is why Plame’s husband Joe Wilson changed his tune on Iraq’s attempts to acquire yellowcake uranium.

The linked blogger would do well to consult the binding legal (actually constitutional) definition of treason before characterizing Grossman's act as such; he disclosed sensitive information to a foreign agent, but that agent's country has not been at war with the United States since 1918.

Whether the foreign government allowed that information to get to our nation's actual enemies is a different matter, but that doesn't make Grossman a traitor unless he knew that's what would happen.

In any event, Fitzpatrick also knew that Richard Armitage had let slip that Plame was CIA in the immediate Plame affair of 2005; rather than indict Armitage, he went after Libby for a peripheral offense. That demonstrates that the investigation was never on the up and up. Never.

That he apparently withheld evidence that Plame had been outed four years prior, fits perfectly with the rest.
