Patrick Fitzgerald's new website

The Special Counsel has created a website for the investigation he has conducted on the CIA Leak, and anything else he uncovered along the way.

Tom Hamburger and Richard B. Schmitt of the Los Angeles Times:

WASHINGTON -- Patrick J. Fitzgerald, the special prosecutor rumored to be wrapping up the long-running investigation of the leak of a CIA agent's identity, set up a website this week posting previously filed documents in the case.

Fitzgerald's spokesman, Randall Samborn, said he "strongly cautions against reading anything into the timing" of the website launch.

However, others familiar with the case said it was unlikely that the prosecutor would set up an Internet page if his investigation was going to close without indictments.

The International Herald Tribune has a bio of Fitzgerald:

"I don't think the prospect of a firestorm would deter him," said J. Gilmore Childers, who worked with Fitzgerald on high-profile terrorism prosecutions in the United States attorney's office in New York during most of the 1990s.

"His only calculus is to do the right thing as he sees it," Childers said.
