We have absolutely no idea who Arianna Huffington‘s sources in the Plame investigation are–but if nothing else, they have some interesting theories. It appears, according to her, that John Bolton‘s chief enforcer might be a key member of this story.
She has two points worth passing along:
1) “So could Ambassador Bolton actually be a target of Pat Fitzgerald‘s investigation? When considering this question, it’s important to keep in mind that he’s never been subpoenaed or questioned by the Plamegate grand jury — and, as a lawyer who does work for the New York Times put it: ‘The target of a grand jury investigation would not ordinarily be subpoenaed to testify before the grand jury.'”
2) “Here’s a suggestion: before you write another overwrought Judy editorial, how about writing one explaining what happened to the in-house Times investigation into Miller’s connection to Plamegate (which sources tell me has been stopped). Or one reporting the fact that Judy is negotiating with Fitzgerald and may be facing criminal contempt charges.”
How say you Gray Lady?
