Fitzgerald to convene new grand jury in leak case

WaPo tells about that Fitzgerald is giving the White House more to be "thankful" for this Thanksgiving season:

The federal prosecutor investigating the leak of a CIA operative's identity says he plans to present information to a new grand jury, a sign that he is considering additional charges in his two-year-old probe.

Special Counsel Patrick J. Fitzgerald said in court filings that his investigation "will involve proceedings before a different grand jury than the grand jury which returned the indictment" against Vice President Cheney's former chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby. […]

Since then, a new wrinkle has been added to the case by the disclosure that an unidentified senior administration official told The Washington Post's Bob Woodward about the CIA operative a month before her name was published. Woodward revealed that he testified in a deposition Monday, answering Fitzgerald's questions about his conversation with the official in mid-June 2003. [more]

I wonder if this new development will throw the Bush team off its playbook again. Or maybe Rove has come up with a new playbook — smear political opponents of the war — to try to divert attention that this crooked White House is still under scrutiny. I guess we'll find out in the weeks to come.
