Miller testimony to end grand jury CIA probe

A US grand jury investigation into whether White House officials broke the law by exposing a covert Central Intelligence Agency operative is set to conclude after testimony on Friday from a New York Times reporter.


Judith Miller, who was imprisoned for nearly three months after refusing to testify about her conversations with a top aide to Dick Cheney, vice-president, was released on Thursday when she changed her mind and agreed to testify. She appeared before the grand jury in Washington on Friday morning.

The conclusion of the investigation could multiply the woes of President George W. Bush if it results in indictments against one or more of his officials. It follows the resignation of Tom DeLay as House Republican leader after a Texas criminal indictment this week for alleged campaign finance fraud, and continued fall-out from the federal response to Hurricane Katrina.

The probe, led by Chicago prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald, was launched after a newspaper columnist in 2003 printed the name of Valerie Plame, an undercover CIA agent. Mr Fitzgerald is investigating whether White House officials illegally disclosed Ms Plame's name

1. This is speculative.
Read the whole article. There is no source for the claim that probe is ending with Miller testimony. Article merely states that it is "set to conclude".

It very well may be true, but I'm wary of unsourced allegations like this.

2. If the probe is ending
Doesn't that mean the indictments will be handed down soon?
