 Intelligence Analysis of White Collar Crime
He defined it as "a crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupation." As Sutherland saw it, the rich were engaged in a conspiracy to use their position for personal gain without regard to the law.
Because a conspiracy by itself is treated almost as a substantive crime in itself, this is the only inchoate offense that the law permits a person to be charged with in addition to the target crime (that is, a person can be charged with both the crime and conspiracy to commit the crime).
Conspiracy is still a specific intent crime, so "purposively" must be used, not just knowledge, although there's a whole string of case law indicating erosion in this area.

 They Are Not Conspiracy Theories
As a matter of fact every single person who has ever been convicted of a crime by a jury is the subject of a conspiracy theory; only in these cases a jury has accepted the theory as truth after seeing the evidence.
Theories, in essence, are educated guesses, and conspiracy theories are educated guesses about conspiracies people perceive around them.
When researchers, history buffs, truth seekers, conspiracy nuts or whatever you want to call us, present newly discovered, yet verifiable information to the public, we are directly attacked as promoters of a conspiracy theory and lambasted with the usual assortment of insults.

 Whiskey Bar: Conspiracy Theory
A conspiracy charge would be a harpoon shoved deep into the administration's belly, rather than a barbless catch-and-release hook that could be quickly shaken loose, which would probably be the case if Fitzgerald had to prove the various specifications (authorized access, intentional disclosure, etc.) required under the Agee law.
A conspiracy charge presumably would delve into the inner workings of the White House Iraq Group, and reveal much about the administration's frantic efforts to obscure and/or spin its prewar meddling with the WMD intelligence.
Presumably, then, the crime would have been the leak of Plame's name -- not under the torturous and possibly inapplicable Intelligence Identities Protection Act, but under one of the sections of the Espionage Statute, perhaps the same ones being used against the AIPAC Three.
