Final Witness...

and then we rest...buckle your seat belts, I saved the best for last.

Tim Russert, One

F: How could you tell he was upset? What did he say?

T: "What the hell is going on with Hardball?" "I'm tired of hearing my name on the air all the time." "What he's saying isn't true."

F: What did you tell him?

T: I said it wasn't my responsibility, so I gave him names (list them)

F: At any time did you discuss the wife of Joseph Wilson?

T: No, because I didn't know who she was until several days later

F: Did Libby ever tell you?

T: No.

F: What would you have done?

T: Gotten more information from him and then discussed with my producers, would have been a significant story

Short, to the point and sweet!


Tim Russert, Two

I can really empathize with Scooter now that I haven't a leg to stand on because my master fell on me and put me on crutches.

Forgot this part Fitz:

T: I testified.
F: Where?
T: In NBC lawyers' office.
F: Under oath?
T: Yes.

F: No further questions.


Bingo! And the Veep and the Gerbil weren't under oath. This makes this hard for the defense to cross examine.

Something that I picked from GJ testimony from the audio:

F: Ever talk to a person named David Shedd?
L: Have talked to him about a lot of things, but don't recall specifically about Wilson


I found out who is David Shredd. According to another article in Oct. 2005 by David Corn. Here is an excerpt:

In October 2003, I wrote a piece entitled "I Am No Novak" in which I noted that there was one White House staffer, a fellow who was not known to the public, whom the Plame leak special prosecutor ought to interview. This person was then working on the National Security Council staff on nonproliferation matters. What made him special was that prior to that assignment, he had worked with Valerie Wilson at the CIA. I wrote:
This NSC staffer might--I emphasize, might--play a role in the Wilson leak scandal. I know of no reason to suspect he or she is one of the leakers. (A recent Newsweek story referred to this NSCer, but it did not name the staffer.) But perhaps this individual--whom I was told is a CIA officer assigned to the NSC--mentioned Valerie Wilson's CIA connection to one or more White House colleagues during the period in which Joseph Wilson was causing the White House discomfort....Consequently, investigators probing the Wilson leak ought to ask this NSC officer-

I did not name the individual because I did not want to engage in Rove-like conduct. (Hence, the headline of my article.) But now it can be told: the name of this NSC staffer is David Shedd. And he no longer is undercover.

What makes the Shedd connection intriguing is the use of Valerie Wilson's maiden name in the Novak column that triggered this scandal. Novak hasn't said how he came to refer to Joseph Wilson's wife as Valerie Plame when at the time she was mostly known as Valerie Wilson. He has hinted--though not said definitively--that he looked her up in a who's who entry for Wilson that listed her by her maiden name. But Larry Johnson points out that people who had worked with Valerie Wilson for years at the CIA--like Shedd--knew her as Valerie Plame.



Pretty damn damaging I might add..

The bad thing about having Cheney on the stand is he will probably charm the pants off the jury.

David Shedd - jeepers, why not on the witness list?

I don't understand how anyone can ever see that man as charming. Eeww. Kind of like an eel being charming. Unfortunately you are right, they probably will.

And SPB-
Way to check out Shedd. Another missing piece to the puzzle.

..and a round of applause for Mr. Fitzgerald and team. Nicely done.

I still think Cheney will perjur himself.

Anon and Patriot Girl:

I have to agree with Anon. Why wouldn't Shedd not on the witness list since he is no longer undercover? What did exactly talk to Sheed about? I think the MSM and other journalists really missing the boat about how Valerie Plame's covert identity was exposed when she was known at the CIA as "Valerie Wilson." That's what makes Libby's defense "Alice In Wonderland" when he said that he learned Plame's name from other reporters. You have to learn that covert identity from tbe CIA classified information and from googling her name or her husband's name!

"Why wouldn't Shedd not on the witness list since he is no longer undercover?"

Maybe it is irrelevant to Libby and would only apply to Cheney since Libby maybe never knew how Cheney discovered Plame's name/status. Maybe Fitz is saving this one for the eel.

I think Fitz is saving that one for the last eel, Patriot Girl. Libby was very vague with Fitz when Libby said that he talked about things to Shedd. And no further cross-examination by Fitz. And yes, Sheed had to apply to Cheney but Libby had to know a lof of Cheney's involvement with Shedd since Libby said that he talked about alot of things to Sheed. They certainly didn't discuss the Cubs! Since Sneed was an undercover agent that would know Ms. Wilson's covert ID, certainly that appeal to Cheney and Libby. We shall see that Fitz has up his sleeves.

That's cold, Fitz! Did you have to put the pic of Timmy on crutches? At least, he is taller than Irve. Irve look at equal size to Wells when he was on crutches on the day of his indictment.
