Libby's defence team is still desperately thrashing about for excuses and stalling for time, demanding all kinds of classified documents.
Fitzgerald is fighting back. Josh Marshall links to a New York Daily News article with this interesting graf:
Fitzgerald, who is fighting Libby's request, said in a letter to Libby's lawyers that many e-mails from Cheney's office at the time of the Plame leak in 2003 have been deleted contrary to White House policy.Atrios links that back to the pre-emptive clean-up operation by "Abu" Gonzales when the Fitzgerald enquiry first began:
But Gonzales, who was White House counsel at the time, waited 12 hours before officially notifying the rest of the staff of the inquiry.Dirty deeds, done dirt cheap.
