Press Corps Attacks Rove Story
Coming in from Charging RINO, the White House press corps went after Press Secretary Scott McClellan today about Rove's apparent involvement in the Valerie Plame affair. McClellan had previously denied Rove was involved but refused to answer questions today--or even offer an attempt at spin.
The transcript is here and it's pretty brutal. Apparently the press corps has decided that this is a story. Is that fair? Well, probably not--given that Rove hasn't even been indicted let alone convicted. But, then again, the press corps has never been known to wait for verifiable evidence before going into full scandal mode. And if this is going to be a full scandal (as determined by the press), then the White House is in trouble.
The last thing this administration needs is a major distraction. McClellan better have some real answers tomorrow.
