Plame Update

PLAME UPDATE….Steve Clemons reports that Plamegate prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald signed a lease earlier this week for expanded office space in Washington DC. That doesn’t seem like the act of a man about to close up shop and go home, does it?

All that’s left now is who, what, where, when, and why. Piece of cake.

UPDATE: Oops, apparently not. Steve’s source has retracted.

UPDATE 2: This is probably less important than we think it is, but Byron York has an interesting tidbit about those interviews that investigators were doing with Joe Wilson’s neighbors on Monday. Oddly enough, it turns out they weren’t follow-up interviews. It was the first time Fitzgerald’s investigators had talked to them.
