We are stunned by the magnitude of the reaction to the article we published yesterday morning. We have put our cards on the table. We invite Mr. Luskin to do the same.
To clarify: The entire basis for the information that “Rove has been cleared” comes from a verbal statement by Karl Rove’s attorney. No one else confirms that. As Karl Rove’s attorney Robert Luskin is bound to act – in all regards – in Rove’s best interest. We question his motives.
That’s it. That’s their entire response. “We question his motives.” It’s like watching a man in a canoe paddling furiously against a current that’s carrying him inevitably over the edge of a waterfall.
