5. Why should he hide?
evidently he refused to corroborate Libby's false story, and never was involved with Plame, sounds like he did the right thing.

9. I'm confused on the Russert issue
It sounds like Libby attempted cover his ass by blaming Russert for telling him about Plame. If this is the case, Libby attempted to royally screw Russert over. Is there more to this that I'm missing?

11. Not really.
Libby told the FBI that Russert gave him the information and then he passed it on to Cooper and Miller because "the press" had already told him.

Fitzgerald made it clear that Russert and Libby did not discuss Plame.

So yeah, it sounds like a big CYA. Perhaps a crime of opportunity. Libby talked to Russert so he seized that conversation as being the one that informed him of her identity.

Doesn't sound like Russert is involved. Don't know if Libby is deliberately screwing Russert or Russert was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

16. ok good, that's what I thought.
Since this is the case, Russert really doesn't have anything to be embarrassed about so I guess I don't understand the point to the original post in this thread.

BUT, if I were Russert, I would be PISSED at Libby for dragging me into this ugly mess. On the bright side, he has a reason to write what could be a very interesting book on the matter.

12. Russert is now part of the news instead of just covering it.

14. That usually makes journalists uncomfortable, doesn't it?
Being on the opposite end of the stick.

It'll just be interesting to watch for cues this Sunday....
