Recent press reports have indicated that, while you may or may not have been the source of the Robert Novak column which revealed the status and name of a covert operative, the wife of Ambassador Joseph Wilson, you were involved in a subsequent effort to push this classified information to other reporters and give it even wider currency. This itself may be a federal crime, but regardless of that fact, your actions are morally indefensible."
- "Secrets and Leaks," Newsweek, October 6, 2003: Page 3: "The White House spokesman dismissed as 'ridiculous' the charge that Rove outed Plame. A source familiar with Rove’s conversation acknowledged that Rove spoke to Matthews a few days after Novak’s column appeared, but said that Rove never told Matthews that Wilson’s wife was 'fair game'—rather, that it 'was reasonable to discuss who sent Wilson to Niger.' Novak wrote last week that the leaker was 'no partisan gunslinger.' That suggests that the original leak came from someone in the White House national-security apparatus, which holds itself above politics."

But he does use them. His campaign history shows his willingness, when challenged, to employ savage tactics."
- Susan Schmidt, "The When and How of Leak Being Probed. Timing of Disclosure of CIA Employee's Name a Factor in Deciding if Law Was Broke," Washington Post, November 26, 2004: "Special prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald is trying to pinpoint precisely when and from whom several journalists learned that Joseph C. Wilson IV, an outspoken critic of the administration, was sent on an Iraq-related intelligence mission after a recommendation by his wife, Valerie Plame, a covert CIA employee. Plame's name first appeared in a July 14, 2003, column by Novak. ... The timing could be a critical element in assessing whether classified information was illegally disclosed. If White House aides directed reporters to information that had already been published by Novak, they may not have disclosed classified information."
