Fitzgerald's Letter to Scooter Libby's Lawyer
Here's something new: A copy of Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald's letter(pdf) to Libby's lawyer Joseph Tate, dated September 12, 2005. [Via How Appealing.] Some points from the letter, old and new:
- Libby was interviewed in October and November, 2003. He testified twice before the grand jury in 2004.
- Libby testified about his recollection of conversations with Judith Miller that occurred during their July 8 meeting and their July 12 phone call.
- Libby was the indiviual specified as "an identified government official" in Miller's subpoena.
- Fitzgerald assumed Miller remained in jail either in spite of the subpoena or because Libby thought it was not in his best interest to encourage her to testify.
- As a result of reading recent press articles, he now thinks there might have been a communication between Libby and Miller regarding the waiver.
- He wants Libby to know that he can reach out to Miller and assure her the waiver is valid and encourage her to testify and it will not be considered obstructive conduct.
