Has anyone heard from David Gregory, following the Libby verdict?
Ari Fleischer testified that he had leaked to John Dickerson and David Gregory during the Presidential trip to Africa on July 11, 2003. John Dickerson has denied this; when the story broke, Imus listeners were assured that all would be revealed after the trial.
So - has Gregory stepped forward to announce that Tim "The Franchise" Russert may have, hmm, misremembered when he said that no one at NBC News knew about the leak? That is not going to happen, unless Gregory has a job offer in hand.
Or has he stepped forward to announce that Fleischer, a key prosecution witness, had memory problems, and the leak never happened? Bummer for Fitzgerald, putting up a shaky witness like that - oh, wait, the verdict is in!
Well, we are waiting with bated breath, but we can't hold it forever (and I'll never turn Blue).
My Bold Prediction - Gregory will say it was a long trip, he was hopped up or grogged out on Sudafed and Ambien, and he just doesn't know. I also predict skepticism will greet his pronouncement.
W [Wells]: Was it the expected practice that if a key reporter got important information, they would report it to the group?
T [Tim Russert]; Yes.
W: And Gregory and Mitchell were key reporters?
T: Yes, and they never came forward.
