Libby Subpoenas Records From Russert, NY Times, Judith Miller and Other Reporters

Adam Liptak reports in Thursday's New York Times that Lewis "Scooter" Libby's defense team served subpoenas on the New York Times and its former reporter Judith Miller for records of Judith Miller and Nicholas Kristof pertaining to Valerie Plame.

The new subpoenas seek her notes and other materials, including any other documents concerning Ms. Wilson prepared by Ms. Miller and Nicholas D. Kristof, an Op-Ed columnist for The Times; drafts of a personal account by Ms. Miller published in The Times in October concerning her grand jury testimony; documents concerning her interactions with an editor of The Times; and documents concerning a recent Vanity Fair article on the investigation.

Miller's attorney, Bob Bennett, says the supboena is too broad and she will fight it.

Representatives of Tim Russert and Matthew Cooper confirm they also have been subpoenaed. [Via Editor and Publisher.]

    wouldn't it be funny if ms. miller were once again threatened with jail, should she refuse to honor the subpoena?

    Yeah, she could go and everyone could forget all about her like Moussaoui. That would be a fate worse than death for her.
