WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush said Tuesday he welcomes a Justice Department investigation into who revealed the classified identity of a CIA operative.
"If there's a leak out of my administration, I want to know who it is," Bush told reporters at an impromptu news conference during a fund-raising stop in Chicago, Illinois. "If the person has violated law, that person will be taken care of.
"I welcome the investigation. I am absolutely confident the Justice Department will do a good job. ..."
Bush said he has told his administration to cooperate fully with the investigation and asked anyone with knowledge of the case to come forward.

Bush claims executive privilege on CIA leak
Vice President Cheney's FBI interview on the subject at issue
WASHINGTON - President Bush invoked executive privilege to keep Congress from seeing the FBI report of an interview with Vice President Dick Cheney and other records related to the administration's leak of CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity in 2003.

While I fervently hope that "King" George and "Dick" Cheney will be impeached and indicted, I have come to realize that this will probably never happen.
I can, and do, implore all of our elected reps, from both sides of the aisle to come to their senses and force the Bush Crime Cartel to co-operate with the legally mandated investigations "King" George promised he was anxious to co-operate with. Didn't he say something about firing anyone in his Administration who had taken part in the outing of a covert CIA operative?
By now, even the staunchest Republican must realize that Bush and his Cronies are RINO's, Republicans In Name Only, and that their party has been hijacked by criminals who make John Gotti and Al Capone look like Alter boys.
It is up to us, the People, to make sure that all of our Elected Representatives, Democrat and Republican, understand that their actions in the coming months will determine how long they "serve" the people. It's an important election year. Let's tell our "servants" that we expect honesty and openess in our Government, and that they can regain our faith in their leadership only if they restore "Government Of the People, By the People and For the People", by holding those who have abused their power, and ignored the People, accountable.
