New twist in CIA leak case

The National Journal is reporting that Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff Lewis "Scooter" Libby didn't disclose a "crucial conversation" he had with New York Times reporter Judith Miller in June 2003 to the grand jury.

You may recall that Miller recently was released from jail after agreeing to testify before the grand jury investigating the leak of CIA officer Valerie Plame's identity. The article says that special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald learned of the conversations only in the past few days, and that Libby also failed to disclose them to FBI investigators.

The fact that Plame worked at CIA was revealed in July 2003 by Robert Novak. Just a week before, Plame's husband Joseph Wilson's column entitled "What I Didn't Find in Africa" appeared in the NY Times.
