Ooops, They Forgot About That One!

The Donks have been soiling their Huggies for the last month, over Karl Rove allegedly outing Valarie Plame, and even if he did out her, it wasn't illegal because she hadn't been undercover for over 6 years. There are accusing him of violating national security, but then they forget that the only person that was ever convicted under the 1917 Espionage Act was PARDONED by a Donk, Bubba "Have A Cigar" Clinton!!
No wonder 2008 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has been silent as a churchmouse about Karl Rove while her Democratic colleagues call for his prosecution for leaking classified information about CIA employee Valerie Plame.

Turns out - in the only case in U.S. history of a person successfully prosecuted for leaking classified information to the press - Hillary's husband pardoned the guilty party.

On January 20, 2001, President Clinton pardoned Samuel Loring Morison, a civilian analyst with the Office of Naval Intelligence. In 1984, Morison had been convicted of providing classified satellite photos of an under-construction Soviet nuclear-powered aircraft carrier to Britain's Jane's Defence Weekly.

Morison is the only person ever successfully prosecuted under the 1917 Espionage Act, the law invoked by Democrats who want to nail Rove after it became clear that he didn't violate the 1982 Intelligence Identities Protection Act.

But it's going to be difficult for Dems to feign national security outrage over Plame's outing when the husband of their party's presidential front-runner let an actual convicted leaker off the hook.

All I have to say is: How do you spell Democrats - H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-E-S!!!
