Power Line: CIA Refers Washington Post Leak for Investigation

From Hinderaker on Powerline:

Power Line: CIA Refers Washington Post Leak for Investigation: “Now it’s up to the Justice Department to launch a criminal investigation of the leaking CIA official or officials, and perhaps other government employees, as the Post’s story suggested that multiple agencies were involved. It would be a great thing if the steady stream of illegal anti-administration leaks out of the CIA and the State Department could be shut down, and some of the Democrat leakers imprisoned. It’s time to put the Plame farce to a good use.”

That’s a strange comment considering that Trent Lott has basically admitted that this most recent CIA leak came from a member of the Senate GOP after a meeting with Cheney:

Another Republican, Sen. Trent Lott of Mississippi, said it may have been Republican senators who leaked the information to the Post. Lott told reporters that the existence of the secret prison system was discussed last week during the Republican policy luncheon, held on Capitol Hill the day before the Post story appeared.

“Information that was said in there, given out in there, did get into the newspaper,” Lott said.

How many Democrats were at the REPUBLICAN POLICY LUNCHEON where this was discussed?
