Dailykos: Dems turn pressure up on Rove

The following press release hit my email box:

The U.S. Senate Democratic Policy Committee (DPC) and the U.S. House Government Reform Committee Minority will conduct a joint hearing at 10:00 AM, Friday, July 22, in Room 138 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building in Washington, DC, to examine the national security implications of disclosing the identity of a covert intelligence officer. The hearing will be co-chaired by Senate DPC Chairman Byron Dorgan (D-ND), and U.S. Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-CA), the Ranking Member of the House Government Reform Committee.

This isn't an official congressional panel. Partisan Republicans in Congress couldn't give a rat's ass that national security was compromised, especially since the leaker is one of their own.

But two things stood out on these hearings -- 1) Democrats have no intention of dropping the ball on the Plame affair, and 2) the involvement of Byron Dorgan, a solidly conservative Democrat from North Dakota, means that Democrats are united on the issue from its left to its right.

7. Keep the fire hot. Keep the feet to the fire.
We won't let these assholes get away with lying us into a war of choice with Iraq, and we won't let Rove get away with covering it up.

6. Huzzah for Dorgan
I live right across the river from North Dakota, and I'd be happy to have Dorgan as my Senator.

11. Need help...
what are we looking for prior to the end of the investigation?

It looks like the principals involved aren't going to talk with the press prior to October, Fitzgerald doesn't have any news conferences scheduled. We've heard from Wilson and Cooper. What is going to keep this story on the front page over the next 12 or so weeks until there is a conclusion?
