Chris Dodd: Investigate The White House's Betrayal Of Trust

Via The Huffington Post:

Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan was one of the key figures in the Bush administration's efforts to respond publicly to the investigation into the Plame leak. He spoke for the White House and he was the filter through which the public learned about which officials were and were not involved in the leak. Standing in front of the White House Seal, McClellan famously denied any White House involvement in the leak, "If anyone in this administration was involved in it, they would no longer be in this administration."

We need to launch an immediate investigation to determine the facts of this case, the extent of any cover up and determine what the President knew and when he knew it. If in fact the President of the United of States knowingly instructed his chief spokesman to mislead the American people, there can be no more fundamental betrayal of the public trust. Read on...

Good for Senator Dodd. In fact, it would be nice if all the candidates took this kind of stand against our current president and let the people know they're actually interested in upholding the rule of law and restoring our Constitution. There seems to be enough evidence to warrant further investigation into McClellan's statements, contact your representatives in the House and Senate and let them know your thoughts on the matter. As always, be nice.
