Hannah's Lawyer Denies Target Status

Via Newsweek:

Last week Hannah's lawyer Thomas Green told NEWSWEEK his client "knew nothing" about the leak and is not a target of Fitzgerald's probe. "This is craziness," he said.

Raw Story says differently.

It sure seems someone high-up is cooperating. My money's on Rove. Why else does a lawyer like Luskin (most likely with advice from his law partner who is also a Republican advisor, Ben Ginsberg) send his client into the grand jury for a 4th time where he gives four and one half hours of testimony? Luskin has said all along his client is "cooperating fully" with Fitzgerald's investigation.

    I hope you are wrong about Rove cooperating, unless it includes a plea agreement with jail time. I could be wrong, but the whole conspiracy to discredit Wilson by pointing out his wife worked for the CIA smacks of a Rove orchestration, not just Libby.

    So is it Rove who will play make ‘em and break ‘em? Hard to believe the evil doctor would destroy his monster? Or was Rove the monster all along?

    Shall we follow the rule of law and do our constitutional duty no matter unpleasant, or shall we follow the path of least resistance, close our eyes to the potential lawbreaking, forgive and forget, move on and tear an unfixable hole in our legal system? No man is above the law, and no man is below the law. That's the principle that we all hold very dear in this country.
