Gosh! I feel more sorry for the leaker than Obama! He has to be sitting around now, thinking how could I be sofaking stupid! $HIT!!!!!
You thought the Plame leaker pissed Fitz off, just THINK of the troops he’s deploying to seek out and hose down whoever leaked this, and the timeline sure points to “Leaky” Leahy.
Yes well the leak here intentionally derails Fitz’s investigation. This really pisses him off. Fitz in the Plame case found out early on, who leaked her name, but continued to persue the case to get someone in the administration on something. That ended up being Libby. I hope he is truely going to persue this investigation all the way to the top.
Thanks for your reply. It’s very helpful to hear from the real world, I just got the statute from another thread.
Again, IANAL, but I would think that criminal investigations on the federal level of political office holders has it’s own set of rules and complications - and in Chicago no less.
It may be that politics matters almost as much as the laws, and affect what is applied where. Also, the possible PR hit of media discussions with “legal experts” on whether “there may have been violations of statutes” carries its own penalties.
