Accusing Thomases

Apparently Karl Rove is being accused of having outed Valerie Plame by Lawrence O'Donnell. According to O'Donnell, Karl Rove is the source of the leak regarding Valerie Plame. If memory serves, however, Valerie Plame's job was COMMON KNOWLEDGE in Washington D.C. So how can it be a crime to reveal what everybody already knows?

O'Donnell, showing the traditional Liberal belief in the Justice System, immediately renders a verdict on poor Karl Rove. GUILTY! But of course, most of us in reality are more interested in waiting to look at the evidence before passing judgement.

If it turns out that Rove knowingly outed Plame, obviously that's embarrassing for him and for the President. But perhaps we can wait for the legal system to do it's thing before making that call, eh, O'Donnell?
