Could Fitzgerald Implicate Bush?

Our good friends over at ThinkProgress pointed out that on This Week yesterday George Stephanopoulos dropped a little bomb…

Definitely a political problem but I wonder, George Will, do you think it’s a manageable one for the White House especially if we don’t know whether Fitzgerald is going to write a report or have indictments but if he is able to show as a source close to this told me this week, that President Bush and Vice President Cheney were actually involved in some of these discussions

Not that I am surprised but if you read all of the speculation up to this point most people have been downplaying the possibility of the Plame leak investigation becoming much of anything. In addition, the highest ranking Bush offical that has been talked about is Rove. If this is true and Stephanopoulos’ source is for real, we could be looking at another Watergate-type fiasco. It certainly would make sense, particularly with last weeks revelation that Scooter Libby was Judith Miller’s source. So now the question becomes, if Bush is proven to have been involved in this leak what will happen to him? Do you think his own party will line up to impeach him the way the Dems did with Clinton?
