Report: Bush Knew of Leak of Valerie Plame's Identity

Capitol Hill Blue is reporting that witnesses have told the grand jury that President Bush knew in advance of plans to leak Valerie Plame's identity and did nothing to stop it. The article says this is the reason Bush is seeking outside legal advice?

Their damning testimony has prompted Bush to contact an outside lawyer for legal advice because evidence increasingly points to his involvement in the leak of covert CIA operative Valerie Plame's name to syndicated columnist Robert Novak. The move suggests the president anticipates being questioned by prosecutors. Sources say grand jury witnesses have implicated the President and his top advisor, Karl Rove.

The White House says Bush's talks with attorney Jim Sharp are just "routine precaution."
