That Bill Clinton/Monica thing -- it wasn't about the sex, it was only about the lying, remember? That's right, lying. Sort of like this:
No word has yet emerged today about what happened when New York Times reporter Judith Miller sat down again with Patrick J. Fitzgerald, the federal prosecutor in the Plame probe, ostensibly to talk about newly found notes from a June 23, 2003, conversation with I. Lewis Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief of staff.
But this afternoon, Murray Waas reported at NationalJournal.com that Libby failed to disclose that conversation in two appearances before the federal grand jury investigating the Plame leak.
Waas, who has broken several stories while pursuing the Plame case, wrote that this report was based on sources with firsthand knowledge of Libby’s sworn testimony.
Libby also did not disclose the June 23 talk when FBI agents working on the Plame leak probe twice interviewed him, the sources told Waas.
Oh, man. Federal prosecutors and FBI agents really don't like it when you lie to them. Seriously.
Quickly, Jinx -- my readers need an explanation of why lying about the treason of outing a covert CIA operative and jeopardizing national security pales in comparison to lying about a blowjob. You can do it. I know you can.
