Bush: CIA leaker would be fired if crime committed


President Bush said on Monday anyone in his administration who was found to have committed a crime in a federal investigation of the leak of a covert CIA agent's name would be fired.

Bush, whose top political adviser Karl Rove has been caught up in the investigation, told reporters he did not know all the facts and urged them to wait until the inquiry was complete before "you jump to conclusions."

"I would like this to end as quickly as possible so we know the facts and if someone committed a crime they will no longer work in my administration," Bush said at a news conference with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
