Conyers on Rove et al.

Rep. Conyers has been has been blogging up a storm on the current Rove scandal relating to the outing of covert CIA agent Valerie Plame. A post Conyers made yesterday has a nice summary:
We learned from Downing Street, that the White House was willing to "fix the facts around the policy," no matter the cost in lives or our nation's reputation. Rovegate involves the same modus operandi: When faced with a growing scandal before the election, Bush righteously promised to throw out any and all leakers. McClellan went so far as to tell us it would be "ludicrous" to accuse Rove or Libby of leaks. Now that there is no doubt that those statements are false and, presto, the standard has changed to "if someone committed a crime."
