My Exclusive Interview with Lawrence O'Donnell - Audio

Posted: Updated:

Mr. O'Donnell was the first person to say that Karl Rove was Matt Cooper's source in the Valerie Plame leak investigation and he was kind enough to come on the blog to do an interview. He was very revealing about the reasons why he leaked Karl'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 revealed Karl's name when he did, it forced his lawyer to take much quicker action than he would have in order to deal with this major revelation.

O'Donnell also stated that there were other people who knew about the Rove-Cooper connection. You can find a collection of Lawrence's blog posts for the Huffington Post here

We bandied about who would be the next Vice President just in case Dick Cheney had to step down. O'Donnell's prediction at the time was that "at least three high level Bush Administration personnel indicted and possibly one or more very high level unindicted co-conspirators..."

Hopefully sometime this upcoming week we'll see what kind of crystal ball Lawrence has.
