Fitzgerald casting a wide net

News & Politics

Everyone's talking about the "wide net" that prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald is casting in the leak investigation, fueled by a front-page Washington Post article today. No startling revelations in the article, but Steve Benen sums up the importance of it: "[T]he scope of Fitzgerald's investigation may very well be as broad as the massive Bush administration fraud used to launch the invasion of Iraq. The Plame scandal is key, of course, but part of a larger political catastrophe. Fitzgerald seems to understand that quite well." (CarpetBagger Report)
