Just a coincidence that Miller agrees to testify the same day Roberts
same day Roberts is sworn in as SC chief? Seems peculiar to me...

2. I guess if the case goes to the SCOTUS, it's all "taken care of"

3. First thing I thought of
but I wear a lot of tin foil. But you never know.

4. Hmmm..you may be on to something...but what?
It takes so long for a case to come before the Supreme Court. I am not discounting your thoughts, I'm just HOPING you're wrong.

5. How so?
What might the connection be, as you see it?

6. That's what I want to know. The timing seems very odd on Miller's end.
btw, welcome to DU.

7. It does seem odd considering that Libby's lawyer said she was
released from naming her source (libby) a year ago! So she went to jail for what reason exactly?

9. Thanks
But, you obviously have some sort of idea about what the connection might be. Care to speculate. I just don't see it.

10. How about just the fact of two major stories happening on the same day...
Miller's story actually trumpeted Roberts, and put Delay on the back burner last night on various news channels. Might have been just a case of wag the dog? who knows...

11. i'll take a stab at it....

how about lining up your ducks?
1.With the court back to 4/5 decisions odds are better for any appeal.
2.Having the Chief Justice in place is a smart move prior to the drum-beat for impeachment. If Miller's testimony came prior to the confirmation of Roberts' and endictments resulted, choosing the justice who would be presiding over the hearings could be a bit more contentious.
