Libby to throw Cheney under the bus?
Maybe, but it's not entirely clear just what is going on:
WASHINGTON - I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff, will in part base his defense on the claim that Cheney instructed and encouraged Libby to share classified information with reporters, sources familiar with the case tell NBC News.Full story.
Libby's attorneys discussed the matter with prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald and the judge in the case in a recent conference call, the sources confirmed. An attorney for Libby flatly denied that version of events.
