Video: Henry Waxman grills Victoria Toensing

This occured earlier today, during Rep. Waxman’s Valerie Plame show trial. 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.

Now, watch Nostrildamus not allow said witness, an expert’s expert since she wrote the law in question, to answer questions.

Oddly, on the central question of Plame’s covert or not status, the Minute Man says Waxman’s silence was thunderous.
