Liptak Article In Today's NY Times Discusses Confusion Over Whether Miller Had "Unequivocal" Waiver From Libby--And When
In today's New York Times, Adam Liptak delves into the question of whether Judith Miller had an "unequivocal waiver" from her source, Lewis Libby, last year, or whether that waiver came about only recently. Mr. Libby claims he told Ms. Miller clearly in 2004 she was free to talk to the grand jury, as does Mr. Libby's lawyer in a letter to Patrick Fitzgerald, a letter that Liptak discusses. But Ms. Miller's lawyer Floyd Abrams says Mr. Libby's lawyer also says that waiver was coerced. "He said, she said" continues. Read more in the Liptak article here, in the lawyers' correspondence here, and in Judith Miller's statement outside the courtroom here.
