Count on Henry Waxman to cut through the bullshit. He wrote a letter to Asscroft’s Justice Department asking them to explain why they are leaking so much “information” in regards to Sandy Berger:
The representative, Henry A. Waxman of California, the senior Democrat on the Government Reform Committee, said the department position regarding Mr. Berger, a national security adviser to President Bill Clinton accused of mishandling classified documents, was at odds with how inquiries tied to the Bush administration had been handled.
“For example, in the investigation into the leak of the identity of covert C.I.A. agent Valerie Plame, officials have said repeatedly that they cannot comment because the matter is currently under investigation,” Mr. Waxman wrote. He said the policy was “intended to maintain the integrity of the investigation and protect the individuals involved.”
Waxman should expect a response sometime around Christmas.
