Libby Trial: Judy Miller's Downhill Run

Judith Miller testified today in the Scooter Libby trial. She sailed through Fitzgerald's direct examination but started on a downhill course as soon as Bill Jeffress began cross-examining her.

The lawyers and judge are in deep debate over Paragraph 5 to Judith Miller's affidavit in support of a motion to quash.

I'll have details at Firedoglake later tonight. In the meantime, check out Marcy's live-blogging of the testimony, as well as Rory and Clarice at Mediabloggers.

    Looks like Judy riding a Scooter to me.

    I am one of the guys who invented downhill racing.

    Poor Judy - trashed by the very people she tried her best to protect.

    If she had such a note driven memory why didn't she remember anything about Valerie Flame?

    Convienient to have such a memory. You can lie until someone shows you something you wrote, and then you remember.

    Miller is a criminal as far as I am concerned. She is a dark actor who concously wrote war propaganda  and has lost all credibility.

    Do you think the NYT is still paying Bennett?

    Bennett or Abrams? (none / 0) (#5)

    I don't think the NY Times paid Bennett. Floyd Abrams was the lawyer they provided to her.  Abrams also represented Matt Cooper initially.

    I'd bet Judy is paying Bennett herself.


    Severence? (none / 0) (#6)

    My guess is that is was part of the severence package.
    Miller remains a likely witness in the perjury and obstruction-of-justice case against Libby. But a Times spokeswoman would not say whether the paper would continue paying her legal bills, saying the severance package was confidential.
