Fitzgerald is back in front of a Grand Jury:
Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald appeared this morning to present information to a new grand jury in the CIA leak investigation.
Fitzgerald has been probing for two years what role senior Bush administration officials have played in leaking a CIA operative name to the media in 2003.
Today’s appearance was the first time that Fitzgerald has gone back to a grand jury since the Oct. 28 indictment of I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Vice President Cheney’s former chief of staff.
At that time, the original grand jury probing the case expired.
With the new grand jury, Fitzgerald continues to consider charges against Karl Rove, White House deputy chief of staff, who failed to reveal to the FBI and the grand jury in the early days of the investigation that he had provided information about CIA analyst Valerie Plame to Time magazine reporter Matthew Cooper.
What does it all mean?
Beats the hell out of me. But I thought you all would be interested.
