Yo Alberto!

by Steve

Yes, Judy Miller is now on the stand at the Libby trial, and she has already blown up Scooter's story. But look who the Vice President's office dragged into the muck today:

Libby’s attorneys have accused White House officials of sacrificing Libby to protect President Bush’s top political adviser, Karl Rove. During cross-examination Tuesday, attorney Theodore Wells suggested that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, who was counsel to the president in 2003, may have been involved in that effort.
Wells has described Rove as crucial to the Republican Party and said Tuesday that Gonzales was tasked with protecting Bush’s interests. Addington corrected him, saying White House counselors protect the interest of the office and the Constitution.

I love the smell of White House sectarian battles.
