As convicted felon Scooter Libby waits for a pardon from Young Master Bush, the Wilson civil suit proceeds apace.
Despite the conviction, Wilson said he and Plame are moving ahead with a civil suit, alleging the White House was behind the leak.
Wilson told CBS News’ The Early Show that President Bush and Vice President Cheney “really need to step forward and reassure the American people that they had nothing to do with this - or explain to the American people what they had to do with it.”
Wilson said he and his wife are going forward with their civil suit against the vice president, White House political adviser Karl Rove and others, because they “want the whole story to come out.”
The trial revealed Cheney’s eagerness to discredit Wilson, an outspoken critic of the Bush administration’s Iraq war policy, as well as the administration’s policies on talking to reporters and its strategies for dealing with a crisis.
