The Fitzgerald investigation

From ABC's the Note:

The Fitzgerald investigation:
It turns out, per the Washington Post, that Bob Woodward testified under oath on Monday at Patrick Fitzgerald's request. LINK

The lede:

"Washington Post Assistant Managing Editor Bob Woodward testified under oath Monday in the CIA leak case that a senior Administration official told him about CIA operative Valerie Plame and her position at the agency nearly a month before her identity was disclosed."

The Post story and Woodward's statement raise as many questions as they answer.

The big ones:

1. Why is this happening now?

2. Who was Woodward's first source?

3. What is Fitzgerald looking for?


What we know: Woodward got a waiver to speak from the source. Woodward will only say it was not "Scooter" Libby. Who has granted waivers in the past? Karl Rove. (At least to Cooper.)

My prediction still stands: this CIA stuff will be a dead horse by Christmas - but I will NOT eat any hats, shave my head, or even wear a tutu if it's not dead by then (in other words, I'm 89% certain it WILL be a dead issue by then).

I think Libby will do jail time.
