New journalist called to testify on Plame leak

This should have been on the front page. Yet another journalist called to testify in Fitzgerald's investigation. Viveca Novak, of Time's Washington bureau, testified "under oath about conversations she had with Rove attorney Robert Luskin starting in May 2004, the magazine reported." Wouldn't that be the ultimate irony if Rove's attorney was the one to take him down with those carefully calculated "leaks" of their own on the investigation?

It's heartening to see that Rove has not yet escaped Fitzgerald's scrutiny but this case is becoming as much about the failure of the White House press corps as it is about the deceit of our government. You have to wonder how many more reporters are stonewalling when they could come forward with information material to the investigation?

I think the significant thing about the Viveca Novak testimony is that she was asked about her conversations with LUSKIN, Rove's atty, FROM MAY 2004!!!

My best guess at this point is that in his efforts to release leaks politically friendly to Rove, he may have revealed evidence of Rove's phone call with Cooper. MONTHS BEFORE ROVE SUDDENLY REMEMBERED IT.

This would shout huge holes in the "I don't recall defense," as well as possibly implicating Rove and maybe Luskin, in obstruction after the fact.

By the way, if it matters, since I ran across your blog and find somethin interesting every day, I dropped a link to you on my site.
