Cheney Interviewed in Plame Investigation

by TChris

Vice President Cheney was reportedly interviewed by federal prosecutors investigating the disclosure of Valerie Plame's status as an undercover CIA officer. As anybody within sniffing distance of a federal investigation would be wise to do, Cheney is believed to have consulted with counsel prior to the interview. The possible involvement of Cheney's office in the illegal disclosure is suggested by (among others) Plame's husband, Joseph Wilson.

It is not clear when or where Mr. Cheney was interviewed, but he was not questioned under oath and he has not been asked to appear before the grand jury, people officially informed about the case said.

Cheney's office declined comment on the interview.
