NYT: Viveca - Luskin Conversation Later Than We Thought
The New York Times details Time reporter Viveca Novak's conversation with Robert Luskin, lawyer for Karl Rove, that supposedly led to the discovery of the Rove-Hadley e-mail and Karl Rove's return to the grand jury in October, 2004, during which appearance he acknowledged his conversation with Matt Cooper.
As far as I can see, there is only one thing in the article that Jane of Firedoglake and I have not previously reported: While the subpoena for Novak-Luskin's conversations dates to May, 2004, sources tell the Times that the conversation at issue (when Novak told Luskin that Rove had talked to Cooper about Valerie Plame Wilson) didn't take place until late summer or early fall, 2004. This puts the conversation much closer to Rove's October 15, 2004 recantation to the grand jury. It also puts the conversation after Cooper was ordered jailed on August 6, 2004 for not complying with his subpoena about Libby and perhaps after his August 26, 2004 deposition about his conversation with Libby, which he provided to avoid going to jail.
