Both Rove and Bartlett have already received trial subpoenas from
Libby’s defense lawyers, according to lawyers close to the case who
asked not to be identified talking about sensitive matters. While that
is no guarantee they will be called, the odds increased this week after
Libby’s lawyer, Ted Wells, laid out a defense resting on the idea that
his client, Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff, had
been made a “scapegoat” to protect Rove.
