The FBI appears ready to point fingers in the Plame affair, at Senior Administration Officials Lewis Libby and John Hanna. TPM
reports that the intial charges against Hanna may be intended to induce him to name higher-ups. Will this really go down before the election?
The 5pm Deadline is approaching,
but the White House doesn't care. The White House--expected to turn in all documents relevant to the Justice Department investigation of the Plame affair--has instead decided that a team of lawyers ought to spend two weeks determining which evidence can be used against their clients. Meanwhile, President Bush continues his two-month initiative
to get to the bottom of the matter himself.
