Finally, Fitzgerald has to prove that Plame's occupation was a secret until Novak disclosed it. Since an awful lot of journalists on the D.C.
cocktail party circuit knew it, that's a tough row to hoe.
So if Fitzgerald isn't pursuing a vendetta against Miller, he must be pursuing a related crime. Perhaps someone fudged, or lied outright, in grand
jury testimony, and Fitzgerald can hang them on a Martha Stewart offense.
If so, I doubt that Rove lied. A first year law school student should be able to get him off on the leaking rap, so he'd be a fool to lie. The worst
that could happen to him is that he'd get fired, and he'd have no difficulty finding other, more lucrative employment.
It's also pretty plain that Miller is protecting someone else, and -- if Fitzgerald isn't just being a jerk -- he's done something pretty bad. I
think the biggest shoes are yet to drop in this case, and that the news media won't like them when they do.This could be the beginning off the
Let's see what we have so far. Bush was seven months into his second term. Things were not looking pretty. And now, in the eight month, we can add
these little nuggets into the fray:
+ Delay, house majority leader - GOP. indicted, finished and not looking forward to his day in court.
+ Frist, senate majority leader - GOP. Being investigated, going downhill fast and his future isn't looking to bright either.
+ Abramoff, asshole and big time power broker - GOP. Indicted, radioactive and is probably going to jail for a loooong time.
+ Safavian, incompetent asshole and Whitehouse procurement honcho - GOP. Arrested, radioactive and is now looking forward to do some quality time with
+ Franklin, neocon sucker and DoD spy - GOP. Made a plea with the feds and is going to jail.
+ Brown, fired FEMA director - GOP. Hemorrhaging political capital for b*sh and ridiculed for giving incompetent people a bad name by just showing
+ Rove/Libby, gatekeepers for * and Cheney - GOP. If Miller squeals and these jokers get indicted, will set off the biggest political scandal since
= GOP core meltdown and the lamest, most confused
president in the history of the United States. Probably drinking like a sponge by now...
Regarding the Judith Miller testimony before Fitzgerald's Grand Jury a few days ago - David Kelly was the bio-weapons expert who got in trouble for
saying that Blair had 'sexed up' the dossier. He was 'suicided' in England soon after. Judith Miller was one of the last people he had contact
with before he died.
David Kelly was the UK WMD scientist who 'suicided himself' in 2003
The last email Mr. Kelly sent, just before he died, was to Judith Miller.
