Stephanopoulos: Bush involved in the leak

George Stephanopoulos hinted that the leaking of Plame's identity involved Bush and Cheney:

Definitely a political problem but I wonder, George Will, do you think it’s a manageable one for the White House especially if we don’t know whether Fitzgerald is going to write a report or have indictments but if he is able to show as a source close to this told me this week, that President Bush and Vice President Cheney were actually involved in some of these discussions.

More from Think Progress including the reminder that Bush spent over an hour answering questions from Fitzgerald.

I find it laughable how pundits and politicians on both sides are discussing how fortunate/unfortunate the implosion is occurring now and not in pre-midterm 2006. I have a strong feeling the scandal cavalcade will continue well into 2007 and beyond. You can't possess the hubris of the Bush regime without backlash. It's only just begun.
