5. Do they really argue that outing her was in the "scope of their employment"?
That takes some serious cahones!

It's all within their jobs to out a covert CIA agent?

Perhaps their ruthless, political, disrespectful interpretation of their jobs but not their actual jobs.

As those with classified information are told, it is their job to keep the information secret and classified. There are no exceptions based on political gain. It was their responsibility to protect her despite whatever political fallout could come their way.

Outrageous and if this is the best that they and their overpriced lawyers can come up with the Wilson's do not have to worry. A jury would be disgusted ( I hope) with such a defense.

:grr:
