FITZGERALD CAVED, NOT MILLER
Mr. Abrams said he wanted Mr. Fitzgerald to question Ms. Miller only on her conversations with Mr. Libby about Ms. Wilson. And he wanted a promise that Mr. Fitzgerald would not call her back for further questioning after she testified once.
Note that Abrams implication is that he was willing to let Miller testify about Libby. The problem was testifying about another person. That was also Libby's impression. But Fitzgerald refused the limitation.
Ms. Miller said she was persuaded."I mean, it's like the tone of the voice," she said."When he talked to me about how unhappy he was that I was in jail, that he hadn't fully understood that I might have been going to jail just to protect him. He had thought there were other people whom I had been protecting. And there was kind of like an expression of genuine concern and sorrow."
But as the grand jury is about to disband, Fitzgerald caves. The Miller-Libby conference call is nothing but an exercise designed to cover up the prosecutor's backtracking.
Mr. Bennett, who by now had carefully reviewed Ms. Miller's extensive notes taken from two interviews with Mr. Libby, assured Mr. Fitzgerald that Ms. Miller had only one meaningful source. Mr. Fitzgerald agreed to limit his questions to Mr. Libby and the Wilson matter.
If this is a basis for indictment, the system is broken.
