Democrats attack Bush aide over CIA leak charges

It’s treason, I say! Send him to Gitmo!

The White House faced fierce questioning on Monday over top political aide Karl Rove’s involvement in a CIA leak scandal and Democratic calls mounted for President Bush to sideline the adviser.
One Democratic lawmaker said the intentional disclosure of a covert agent’s identity amounted to an “act of treason.” Others urged Bush to sideline Rove by suspending his access to classified information and said the aide should “clear the air” by answering questions from Congress.
After publicly defending Rove two years ago, the White House responded to a barrage of pointed questions on Monday by saying that it would not comment at the request of the prosecutors investigating who leaked the identify of the CIA agent, Valerie Plame.
