COOPER IS TESTIFYING….Weird, weird, weird. As I mentioned yesterday, Karl Rove’s lawyer says that Rove has signed a waiver allowing reporters to testify about their conversations with him in the Valerie Plame case. However, the nature of the waiver was unclear, and Matt Cooper still intended to refuse to testify about his source anyway.
Today, however, Cooper told the judge that “in somewhat dramatic fashion,” he got a personal communication from his source this morning telling him it was OK to testify. (Via Fox News, no link.) Judith Miller, on the other hand, appears to be practically eager to go to jail.
So Cooper is testifying. Is his source Rove? Who knows. More later.
