THOSE EXPECTING A QUICK RESOLUTION TO THE PLAME AFFAIR may want to ponder this:
There is major news in the fight over the report of independent counsel David Barrett’s investigation into the Henry Cisneros matter. Late today, the three-judge panel overseeing Barrett ordered that parts of his report be released to the public — and that all of the report be given to Congress.
For those who have forgotten, Cisneros was Clinton’s HUD Secretary, and was charged with lying to the FBI about the amount — not the existence — of payments to his former mistress.
Oh, well. Some people will manage to cash in a bit, just like last time.
UPDATE: Andy McCarthy says that Fitzgerald is apolitical and honest.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Tom Maguire has some thoughts as everyone is waiting for Fitzgerald.
