Libby Indicted As Expected
Well, we now know that Tim Russert's only involvement in the case is being fingered by Libby as his original source of Ms. Plame's identity. His testimony before the grand jury was essentially: I know nothing.
Ms. Miller's importance was that she was the first reporter that Libby contacted with Ms. Plame's identity, and therefore, her testimony establishes the time line.
Libby has resigned and is looking at 30 years in prison, and up to $1.25 million in fines if convicted.
Update: By not going for the Espionage charges, Fitzpatrick has avoided having to introduce classified information at trial while still going for significant prison time.
