    Libby, the former top aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, told FBI investigators and a grand jury he first learned Wilson’s identity from Russert during a conversation on July 10, 2003. He later recanted, saying a note he found had jogged his memory, and that he initially heard the name from Cheney about a month before.
