“White House Won’t Rule Out Polygraphs”

CNN reports. Excerpt:

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The White House pledged full cooperation Wednesday with a Justice Department probe into the leak of a CIA operative’s name and has followed proper procedures so far, a spokesman told reporters Wednesday.

Press secretary Scott McClellan strongly intimated that President Bush would expect White House aides to take polygraph examinations if the Justice Department asked for them.

“Full cooperation is full cooperation,” McClellan said.

All White House employees have been instructed to preserve documents dating to February 2002 that could be relevant to the investigation.
