Libby to Call Cheney as a Defense Witness at Trial

It's official. Team Libby told the Judge presiding over his trial today he absolutely will call Veep Dick Cheney as a trial witness.

More information is available here, as well as last week's filings.

Update: Empty Wheel and Christy at Firedoglake share their thoughts.

Update: I'd love to see Fitz impeach Cheney at trial using Cheney's statements made in 2004 to federal investigators.

More on Cheney's involvement here and here.

    Ticketmaster could sell tickets to this one!  I would pay some serious money to be able to witness Patrick Fitzgerald's cross examination of the VEEP. Will Cheney actually show up or will he try to weasel out of it??
