Schumer said he talked to Pat Leahy about calling Patrick Fitzgerald in for questioning about Bush and Cheney because they didn't talk to him in the grand jury setting about the Plame/CIA leak.

Schumer: I've spoken to Sen. Leahy about this and what we're thinking of doing is calling Patrick Fitzgerald---the prosecutor before us....he did interview the President and Vice President...not before a grand jury and he might have some very interesting things to say.

Can you help us out?
