Hot Dog...

Christy breaks it down.

Fitzgerald Investigation/Libby Case Update, Part I
"I talked a little bit about legal questions that I had on this in comments the other day, but I wanted to reiterate one in particular here: when you have a "sealed indictment," it is sealed — as in not publicly available — for a reason. We used them a lot in drug conspiracy cases, where you had evidence of lower level people but were still working the investigation up the chain, and you would indict a lower level dealer when you had evidence on them, seal the indictment so as not to tip off higher level dealer/distributors, and then unseal the entire batch of indictments if and when you completed the investigation or you had to make an arrest on someone you thought was going to flee the jurisdiction.
Once you talk about an indictment that is under seal with anyone, you break that seal and the information contained within the indictment can become public. Which, frankly, defeats the whole point of having a sealed indictment in the first place." [more]

Christy you should teach law. It would take me a book to explain what you put in a few sentences. I guess its hard for people to understand when we don't have the full story just pieces. I just like following along as Fitz and this team build their case with a strong foundation. The Gerbil and team are busy getting as much as they can before it all over.

Ok I just read about Gonzo stating he didn't know where his grandparents came from and that journalist will be charged with leaking classified information. Now lets see Gonzo does know that his grandparents were illegal immigrates but doesn't want anyone to know. Two Bush leaked the classified information to reporters to counter the remarks by Wilson. So let see now its a crime if the criminal (Bush) gives classified info to journalist for them to go public but when Bush is caught only the journalist are charged as Bush forgot to declassifiy the information until Novak's article became publice. Talk about KGB Putin is laughting at this one. The criminal committs the crime and the user gets charged. What a set up. At lease Tony Snow is safe he's a racist so he's part of the team. Tweety Chis Matthews/Katie Couric are safe also as their on the crimainls payroll. All the honest journalist better watch out their being targetted as Bush said your either with me or against me, he forgot to say with his criminal corrupt activities.

I guess the bloggers can now understand what a "sealed document" is!!!! Thank you Christy with that explanation! And about Gonzo not knowing his grandparents were immigrants??? Give me a break.. Gonzo may be afraid that he and his family may be shipped from this country.. And now I read that Gonzo is going after the journalists for leaking classified info and punishing them?? Well, first, the bonehead Attorney General needs to arrest the Gerbil first. The Gerbil was the one who leaked out classified info! Duh!!! The Gerbil didn't DECLASSIFY the NIE info until after Novak's article. What an asswipe!!! Imagine that Gonzo putting his boss in jail!!! Can't wait until the movie comes out!!!

It should be called: All the President's Expendable, Boot-Licking Gophers. It seems like Armitage is the only man so far. It seems he was not in favor of outing a CIA agent because it is WRONG.

But wait until Dead Eye Dick gets indicted, Night Owl.. There may be more Armitages that come knocking at Fitzgerald's door to avoid jail time.. I will keep me eye on the 23 names linked to the leak case....

More will turn against Cheney, to ensure he gets indicted.
