Andrea Mitchell: Back in the light
The big news in today's Libby filing is that we might finally find out what happened with Andrea Mitchell and the exposure of Valerie Plame. She's one of my favorite players in Plamegate as you all know by now. Andrea has given weird, conflicting answers about her role on Imus and it would be nice if she finally started answering some questions.
See the videos here and here.
Tom Maguire: "Andrea Mitchell has handwritten notes of what "may" be a conversation between her and Libby during the relevant time period prior to the publication of Novak's column. Her side claims they are irrelevant since they make no mention of Ms. Plame; Libby's side notes that, if Plame was not mentioned, the ruthless campaign by Evil BushCo to punish Joe by outing Valerie was evidently pursued with sub-maximal vigor. Well - it is news to me that these two spoke."
FDL: "NBC’s total failure to addresss the situation, and her continued stumblings when she’s been asked about it, are going to make her one hell of a scape goat. She looks like an idiot, she’s obviously been extremely inconsistent in all her conflicting statements, and Team Libby will no doubt use that to imply she isn’t telling the truth about things which serve their purposes."
