President Bush was questioned this morning in the Oval Office by federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald concerning the Valerie Plame leak. Also present was attorney Jim Sharp, to whom Mr. Bush had previously spoken. Apparently Mr. Bush has now formally retained Mr. Sharp to represent him in the investigation into who leaked the name of Valerie Plame, an undercover CIA operative.

CBS News has the scoop.

Capitol Hill Blue has previously reported that witnesses have testified before the Grand Jury investigating the Plame leak that President Bush had prior knowledge of the leak. Although Grand Jury proceedings are secret, witnesses are free to tell others about their testimony.

Willful disclosure of the identity of an undercover CIA operative is a felony. If President Bush knows who the leakers are and has failed to disclose this information, then he is guilty of misprision of a felony, which is in itself a serious crime, and would surely qualify as a high crime for purposes of impeachment.

Word of the day: misprision. Had no clue what you said he would be guilty of

Main Entry: 1mis·pri·sion
Pronunciation: (")mis-'pri-zh&n
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Middle French mesprison error, wrongdoing, from Old French, from mesprendre to make a mistake, from mes- mis- + prendre to take, from Latin prehendere to seize -- more at GET
1 a : neglect or wrong performance of official duty b : concealment of treason or felony by one who is not a participant in the treason or felony c : seditious conduct against the government or the courts

Thanks for the post, if this is the case he and anyone else that knew should be fried for treason, along with the person that leaked the info in the first place.

Bush is criminal, look at his relatonship with the Bin Ladins and the things he has done to these people. He has a lot to answer for and I don't think he's smart enough to escape what coming to him. He has put the world in danger and he will probably start wwIII if people don't act against him and those that put him their. I mean he stole the election and didn't even cover his tracks, cause he knows that he can't be touched. What are wrong with people, we should be rebelling against this tyrant but no one seem to be awake. WAKE THE **** UP!!!

70, minutes sound lengthy to me, what they were doing in private, the president of this country affairs are supposed to be public, he is public figure. Don't we the people of this country should be notify of anything that goes on with our commander in chief.
