Treasongate: Libby and the "other White House officials"

by eriposte

A most curious statement from Patrick Fitzgerald, pages 29-30 (emphasis mine):

Moreover, given that there is evidence that other White House officials with whom defendant spoke prior to July 14, 2003 discussed Wilson’s wife’s employment with the press both prior to, and after, July 14, 2003 - which evidence has been shared with defendant – it is hard to conceive of what evidence there could be that would disprove the existence of White House efforts to “punish” Wilson.

Other White House officials (plural).

This would seem to exclude Mr. Armitage as Novak's source wouldn't it? And perhaps give even more credence to the Hadley option?

I'm sure Christy's post on this should be up soon at Firedoglake. :-)
