Toensing Issues Indictments in CIA Case

Victoria Toensing goes nuclear. Fitz and Joe Wilson get frogmarched. Along with a whole lot of others.
THIS GRAND JURY CHARGES PATRICK J. FITZERALD with ignoring the fact that there was no basis for a criminal investigation from the day he was appointed, with handling some witnesses with kid gloves and banging on others with a mallet, with engaging in past contretemps with certain individuals that might have influenced his pursuit of their liberty, and with misleading the public in a news conference because . . . well, just because.

THIS GRAND JURY CHARGES THE CIA for making a boilerplate criminal referral to cover its derrière.

THIS GRAND JURY CHARGES JOSEPH C. WILSON IV with misleading the public about how he was sent to Niger, about the thrust of his March 2003 oral report of that trip, and about his wife's CIA status, perhaps for the purpose of getting book and movie contracts.

THIS GRAND JURY CHARGES THE MEDIA with hypocrisy in asserting that criminal law was applicable to this "leak" and with misreporting facts to wage a political attack on an increasingly unpopular White House.

It continues. Read it all.

UPDATE. Check out Byron York and What the CIA Leak Case is About. It's about as big a farce as one can imagine.
