Cooper to testify/Miller still refuses

Time Reporter to Testify in CIA Leak Case

More than a year after he refused to comply with a grand jury subpoena, Time magazine reporter Matt Cooper (search) agreed to testify about the person or persons who leaked the identity of a CIA officer.

"I am prepared to testify and I will comply," Cooper told U.S. District Judge Thomas Hogan.

For months, Cooper and Judith Miller (search) of The New York Times had refused to name their sources before a grand jury in the investigation of the leak, which is believed to have come from within the Bush administration.


Should be interesting. I still don't get where a crime was committed here, and I don't base this on my opinion but various lawyers including one who helped write the law in question!

Miller will be off to jail. Apparently the judge (or prosecutor) KNOWS the identity of her source and that source has agreed to release his/her identity. Apparently Miller doesn't trust the release because she feels it was coerced??! Interesting ...

It had been reported that Rove gave such a release to Cooper a while ago. Cooper agreed to testify after just NOW receiving a permission from his source. So it's looking like Rove may not be the source after all. Stay tuned!

and the publication by Novak. You have said repeatedly that it isn't a crime. You are clearly aware of something I am not aware of. Could you share it, please?
