Waxman Calls for Release of FBI's Interviews with Bush and Cheney

Citing the recent allegations of former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan, House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) today called on the Department of Justice to release FBI interviews with President Bush and Vice President Cheney relating to the leak of CIA agent Valerie Plame Wilson's identity.

McClellan, in his new tell-all book, has alleged that Bush and Cheney were involved in delivering false information to the public regarding the Plame leak.

In December, Waxman requested materials related to U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation of the leak. That investigation led to the conviction of I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby for his involvement. Waxman received redacted interviews with Libby and former White House aide Karl Rove.

But Waxman today said that McClellan's allegations warrant the release of Bush and Cheney's interviews as well. See Waxman's letter to Attorney General Michael Mukasey below:
