IT COULDN'T HAPPEN TO A NICER . . . .Dick Cheney may have some Big Time problems in the PlameOut investigation. [story] As previously noted, Cheney is most heavily invested in the selling of the Iraq war and it doesn't take a prophet to say someone close to him invested in political future might want to sell him out um big time.
Fitzgerald has questioned Cheney's communications adviser Catherine Martin and former spokeswoman Jennifer Millerwise and ex-White House aide Jim Wilkinson about the vice president's knowledge of the anti-Wilson campaign and his dealings on it with Libby, his chief of staff, the people said. The information came from multiple sources, who requested anonymity because of the secrecy and political sensitivity of the investigation.
MULTIPLE SOURCES? Sounds like multiple rats covering their rat a$$es.
WILL LIBBY SCOOTER OFF LIKE A RAT ON A MOPED? [WaPo] Robert S. Bennett, speaking on the ABC program "This Week" on the day the Times disclosed new information about three conversations Miller had with Libby about the CIA employment of a White House critic's wife, said that "much would depend upon what Mr. Libby said to the grand jury.
"If he said that he had not talked to Judy about these things or didn't talk about the wife, then he's got a problem," Bennett said, referring to CIA operative Valerie Plame, the woman at the center of the leak investigation. Miller told prosecutors that "to the best of her recollection she did not know of" Plame's employment at the CIA "before she spoke to Mr. Libby," he said.
THE HERETIK CAN ALMOST HEAR Libby squealing with his paw in the rat trap. Question of the day is what cheese Scott McLellan will offer to replace the buffet of misleading he dished out when neither Libby nor Rove nor anyone remotely near the White House had anything to do with outing Plame.
