Mr. O'Donnell was the first person to say that Karl Rove was Matt Cooper's source and he was kind enough to come on the blog to do an interview. He was very revealing to C&L about the reasons why he leaked Karl Rove's name when he did and the thoughts that went through his mind before he uttered the name Rove to the world at large.

Lawrence also felt that because he leaked Karl's name when he did, it forced his lawyer to take much quicker action than he would have. O'Donnell also stated that there were other people who knew about the Rove-Cooper connection.

Mr. O'Donnell was very candid in talking about the emails that he sent out after his McLaughlin Group appearance and his subsequent blogging on The Huffington Post.

We bandied about who would be the next Vice President just in case Dick Cheney is indicted. He predicted: "Prediction: at least three high level Bush Administration personnel indicted and possibly one or more very high level unindicted co-conspirators."

There's plenty more in the interview to discuss. I shamelessly asked for an audition to be a blogger on the West Wing. lol I have a second part of the interview to post that featured his highly publicized segment with John O'Neal. If anyone would like to make a transcript that would be great.
