When I read ex-CIA officer Larry Johnson’s account of his luncheon with someone connected to the case, I thought it might not be substantive enough to pass along, but subsequent events have changed my mind, so here goes:
“Had lunch today with a person who has a direct tie to one of the folks facing indictment in the Plame affair. There are 22 files that Fitzgerald is looking at for potential indictment . These include Stephen Hadley, Karl Rove, Lewis Libby, Dick Cheney, and Mary Matalin (there are others of course). Hadley has told friends he expects to be indicted. No wonder folks are nervous at the White House.”
The subsequent event that changed my mind? Prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald has unveiled … his new website! Hardly the act of someone about to fold up his tent and steal away into the night …..
