Scott McClellan, the president’s former chief spokesman who wrote a tell-all book about the White House’s ‘culture of deception’ and how it hung him out to dry, will testify next week before a House committee about the leak of CIA agent Valerie Plame’s identity.

McClellan will testify under oath about what happened during the Plame affair and whether Vice President Dick Cheney told him to mislead the public about how Plame’s identity was leaked to several journalists.

The hearing is scheduled for June 20 before the House Judiciary Committee.


‘I’ll tell them what I know,’ McClellan said Monday night on MSNBC’s ‘Countdown’ with Keith Olbermann, as they discussed McClellan’s book, ‘What Happened.’
