On the Twenty Eighth Day of Fitzmas

Brian Zick

Swopa at firedoglake invites Carol Leonnig and Amy Goldstein, Neil Lewis, David Stout, Matt Apuzzo, and David Shuster to do a little more digging into other leaks of Valerie Plame Wilson's identity that occurred on July 12, and whether they were directly authorized by Cheney. Emptywheel reports on arguments over the relevance and admissability of the contradictory statement by Andrea Mitchell (that she had heard of Plame, then that she hadn't). Emptywheel calls play by play of testimony from Walter Pincus, then Bob Woodward, and then David Sanger. update: Emptywheel documents the testimony from Bob Novak. update 2: Emptywheel reports on Fitz's cross examination of Novak. And then testimony from Glenn Kessler, Evan Thomas and Carl Ford.
