Plame to use "Paula Jones precedent" to force Cheney to testify
The Pensito Review reports that Valerie Plame's lawyer will use a precedent set during the Clinton administration to force Vice President Dick Cheney to testify in Plame's civil suit.
In 1997, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously that Bill Clinton's presidential immunity did not extend to private behavior. So, based on this "Paula Jones" precedent, Cheney's on the hook--unless his lawyers can convince the judge that if their client revealed Plame's identity it would have been on government business.
All in all, a pretty sweet Catch-22. Bravo, Mr. Trial Lawyer.
