I think I've been paying pretty clse attention to Treasongate developments over the last few weeks, but the following quote from Michael Isikoff's new Newsweek article is the first time I can recall seeing any mention of the involvement of Jim Sharp - George W. Bush's personal criminal attorney - in many months.

...Fitzgerald made another visit early Friday morning--shortly before the grand jury voted to indict Dick Cheney's top aide, I. Lewis (Scooter) Libby--to the office of James Sharp, President George W. Bush's own lawyer in the case, to tell him the president's closest aide would not be charged.

Hmmm....  I'm trying to keep my tinfoil in the drawer where it belongs, but why would Fitz make a special trip to tell the president's personal criminal attorney about this if he's already told Rove's attorney?

UPDATE: As emptywheel points out below, Fitz's visit to Sharp was also mentioned in yesterday's NYT.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
