A former Washington Post reporter who wrote a book on spying and lived near someone who could be a key witness in the case was approved as a potential juror in the CIA leak case Wednesday.Sounds like a plant in the jury room, if you ask me.
The former journalist who spent nearly an hour on the stand during the second day of jury selection lives near NBC "Meet the Press" anchor Tim Russert and knew or had connections to several key witnesses in the case. He once worked under Post reporter Bob Woodward and had followed the case in the news.Me too, mate. Me too.
He was even friends with an attorney who played touch football with Libby — "He's got a great arm," the potential juror remarked.
Despite his connections to the witnesses, he said he did not have preconceived opinions about the case.
"I'm very skeptical about pretty much everything I hear until I see it backed up," he said.
