Have I died and gone to heaven? Two Plame developments in one day. This time it’s Ms. Miller’s turn:
A federal judge has ruled that a New York Times reporter must testify before a grand jury as part of an investigation into the disclosure of an undercover CIA operative’s name.
In a decision made public Thursday, U.S. District Judge Thomas F. Hogan rejected Judith Miller’s claim that as a reporter she should not be compelled to testify about confidential sources.
In his ruling, Hogan said Miller’s testimony “is necessary for completion of this investigation … and is expected to constitute direct evidence of innocence or guilt.”
“Direct evidence of innocence or guilt.” It shouldn’t be long now. Better put on your frog-marching boots, Karl.
