CIA Officials May Testify Against Scooter Libby

Posted on May 23, 2006

Two top CIA officials are going to testify against Scooter Libby in his trial for perjury, false statements and obstruction of justice in the Valerie Plame matter. Reportedly, the officials will help Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald prove his case that Libby lied under oath.

The New York Daily News reports that both of the CIA officials discussed Plame with Libby before her cover was blown by columnist Robert Novak. Libby has said it was journalists told him about Plame.

In other Plamegate news, everyone's still waiting to see if Karl Rove is -- or already has -- been indicted. It appears that it may be a long wait; no one rushes Patrick Fitzgerald.
