Here is an excerpt thread from Colorado Pols.
As we wrote yesterday, Republican Rick O'Donnell's fundraiser with Vice President Dick Cheney might have come at an inopportune moment with the Veep facing trouble in the CIA leak probe. Well, it turns out that trouble is more than we would have guessed, because it sounds like Cheney himself may have been the source of the leak. From the Associated Press:
The White House on Tuesday sidestepped questions about whether Vice President Dick Cheney passed on to his top aide the identity of a CIA officer central to a federal grand jury probe. Notes in the hands of a federal prosecutor suggest that Cheney's chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, first heard of the CIA officer from Cheney himself, The New York Times reported in Tuesday's editions.
