Get out the old whipsaw
The New York Times says special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald isn’t yet done with Judith Miller.
Now, the story isn’t 100 percent clear, but it sounds like Fitzgerald may want to hear from Rove first, after his voluntary offer to come back to the grand jury and apparently attempt to clear up and reconcile conflicting accounts of events given in multiple previous appearances.
My guess is that Fitzgerald wants Miller back after that. He’s got Miller’s first round of testimony, as well as Matthew Cooper’s, hanging over Rove’s head.
Plus, Rove knows that Miller’s coming back for Round 2, and that has to also be troubling him. Why?
Once Rove provides whatever “clarifications” he feels he needs to make, back comes Miller, with Rove’s just-completed testimony hanging over her head. Got to hand it to Fitzgerald, if this is indeed the plan, this is whipsaw tactics to a T.
