Wow. This one bears watching; Henry Waxman (Democrat of course) trying to put words into the mouth of a witness about the Valerie Plame affair. It's a matter that has virtually no interest but this is noteworthy because Waxman seems intent on not actually hearing anything Toensing has to say which will actually contradict his own preconceived notions.
Keep in mind that Victoria Toensing wrote the Intelligence Identities Protection Act, the law that was at the center of the Plame-Wilson fracas. Keep in mind that she knows what the law is for and whom it covers, since she wrote it. Keep also in mind that Toensing was called to Waxman’s kangaroo court as a witness. Witnesses generally answer questions asked of them in such settings. That’s why they’re there.
Waxman's refusal to let her speak seems to be an obvious tactic to prevent her from actually stating fact- that under the law as it stands, Plame was not a covert agent. That's information that he evidently can't process. So instead of letting her answer questions he blusters over the top of her, asking questions and then not letting her speak. Not only stupid but just so damnably rude.
