No, it’s not aboutÂ Democrats v. Bush this time.Â This time it’s about special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald.Â Fitzgerald is fighting release of documents in the now ‘closed’Â Valerie Wilson debacle.Â From today’s Opinion Journal Online. . .
Mr. Fitzgerald is fighting release of the affidavits he filed with the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to justify compelling two reporters to testify about their conversations with Mr. Libby, and to throw one of them in jail for 85 days until she did so. Also under court seal are eight pages of a redacted 2005 D.C. Circuit opinion by Judge David Tatel that explained the court’s decision to support Mr. Fitzgerald’s pursuit of the reporters.
