Valerie Plame has taken to Democrat politics like a duck takes to water. She was able to lie through her teeth without a hint of shame. In her ad, she claims that former Vice President Dick Cheney and his chief of staff, Scooter Libby, betrayed her by outing her out as a covert spy. That is an outright lie. She was outed accidentally by Richard Armitage. We know that because Armitage admitted it, along with journalist Robert Novak, who wrote the article. They both freely admitted it. Armitage did not think Plame was covert — because how can you secretly be a CIA agent when you work at the CIA Headquarters every day?
Former CIA spy Valerie Plame released her first campaign ad for Congress on Monday. In the ad she lies that former Vice President Dick Cheney and his chief of staff Scooter Libby Scooter betrayed her.
“I come from Ukrainian-Jewish immigrants. My dad was in the Air Force, my brother almost died in Vietnam. My service was cut short when my own government betrayed me,” Plame says in the video.
President Donald Trump pardoned Libby in April of 2018, telling reporters at the White House, “I don’t know Mr. Libby, but for years I have heard that he has been treated unfairly. Hopefully, this full pardon will help rectify a very sad portion of his life.”
Plame, who was exposed during her time at the CIA under former President George W. Bush, announced May 9 that she would be running for Congress in New Mexico as a Democrat.
In the ad, Plame suggests she was stationed in Iran and the DPRK, which she was not. She also uses the CIA seal, which is illegal, as use the use of official government seals and logos without permission is restricted by federal law.
