Will Scooter Take the Fall for Cheney?
There were no indictments issued today, as we all well know by now, so I was just going to give this story a rest for a little while. But then I saw this story in Wednesday's New York Times. "Lawyers involved in the case" leak that Fitzgerald has some of Scooter's notes from a meeting that reveal he learned Joe Wilson's wife worked for the CIA from Dick Cheney. So much for shielding the guys at the top. Who's leaking this and why? Who knows. It doesn't appear to come from Scooter or his camp, because it spells out his legal jeopardy and implies that Scooter himself did not provide the notes to the special prosecutor (and possibly never once mentioned them in his testimony to the grand jury). Does the leak come from Rove, desperate to sidestep the spotlight himself? Maybe we'll get to see some indictments in the next day or two and start to get some answers. Or maybe we won't.
