McClellan Says He’ll Testify

Posted by MEC on June 10, 2008

Scott McClellan has said he has accepted an invitation to testify before the House Judiciary Committee about the leak of Valerie Plame’s CIA role. The hearing is scheduled for Friday, June 20.

Let’s see Bush claim Executive Privilege to stop McClellan from testifying, after his minions have been out there claiming McClellan was never party to confidential discussions and never got privileged information.

Scott, stay out of small planes, okay?

Why Should We Listen to Scott McClellan?

Posted by MEC on May 28, 2008

Oh, so now Scott McClellan tells us that Bush is a liar. When did he figure that out? While he was working in the White House press office, or not until after he left?

I’m not impressed, Scottie. Not. At. All. You could have done the right thing, and leave the White House rather than repeat the lies. Maybe even hold a press conference on your own account, to tell the American people you’re quitting because you won’t be a party to deceiving them. Instead, you profited from abetting that deception, and now you want to profit by complaining about it.

I hope your new book goes straight from the publisher to the remainder table.
