The house of cards is going to come tumbling down...

Will we see Karl Rove frog-marched out of the White House in handcuffs?

MSNBC's analyst Lawrence O'Donnell disclosed on the McLaughlin Group friday night that Rove was the source of the leak of CIA covert operative Valerie Plame's identity to columnist Robert Novak, in retaliation for her husband, Ambassador Joe Wilson, revealing that he had investigated the Nigerian yellowcake claims that Bush used as part of the justification for war and told the administration that they were totally unfounded - Bush didn't care, it was just one more of the lies that he used to lead the nation into an illegal and unnesessary war.

George H.W. Bush, the President's father, once said that:

I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who betray the trust by exposing the name of our sources. They are, in my view, the most insidious, of traitors.

In September 2003, White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan said:

McClellan said that if anyone at the White House leaked Plame's identity, he should be fired, and pursued to the "fullest extent."

"No one was authorized to do this. That is simply not the way this White House operates and if someone leaked classified information it is a very serious matter," he said.

It will be interesting to see the Orwellian speaking as they try to worm their way out of this one -- after all, they can't leave chief attack dog and depupty chief of staff Rove hanging in the wind, can they?

One by one the "foundations" of the house of cards that is the Bush presidency are being removed. How much longer will it be before the growing calls for impeachment are heard, as vulnerable House Republicans feel the way the wind is blowing and jump ship?
