Scott McClellan: I Really Know Nothing

From Stephen Dinan’s piece on the hearing yesterday:

Democrats treated former White House spokesman Scott McClellan’s congressional testimony Friday as a road map to scandal in the White House, Republicans saw it as a farce and Mr. McClellan himself used it as a chance to push his book.

Nine times Mr. McClellan said he has a “suspicion” of serious wrongdoing at the White House, particularly on the part of Vice President Dick Cheney, whose former chief of staff was convicted of obstruction of justice for trying to cover up the leak of a CIA operative’s identity.

“The continuing cloud of suspicion over the White House is not something I can remove, because I only know one part of the story,” he told the House Judiciary Committee. “Only those who know the underlying truth can bring this to an end. Sadly, they remain silent.”

 Now what is it my book says?
