Rove Aides Queried About Matt Cooper Testimony
The New York Times reports Rove aides Susan Ralston and Israel Hernandez were questioned about Matthew Cooper's grand jury testimony during their grand jury stint last Friday - and the telephone call Cooper said he made to Karl Rove on July 11, which wasn't entered on Rove's phone log.
In an article in Time last month about his grand jury appearance, Mr. Cooper wrote that he had telephoned the White House and been transferred to Mr. Rove's office. "I believe a woman answered the phone and said words to the effect that Rove wasn't there," Mr. Cooper wrote, "or was busy before going on vacation. But then I recall she said something like 'hang on,' and I was transferred to him."
Mr. Cooper wrote that Mr. Rove told him that Ms. Wilson had worked at the C.I.A. and had been responsible for sending her husband to Africa. But Mr. Cooper added that Mr. Rove did not identify Ms. Wilson by name or suggest that he knew of her status as a covert officer.
