The Washington Post asks: What did the President know?
So does that mean Fitzgerald might call Bush and Cheney to testify before the grand jury, under oath? Might he even have done so already? We have no idea, of course, because the White House isn't saying anything at all about the investigation anymore.
Either way, the CIA leak story is taking on more and more of the trappings of the classic Washington political scandal, the saving grace for Bush being that his party controls Congress, and that thus far, Republicans have closed ranks behind him.
But get ready for more and more talk about the parallels between this story and the Clinton intern scandal, and of course, Watergate.
We're already hearing some of the prototypical questions being raised. Here's former presidential adviser David Gergen, on ABC's "This Week" yesterday: "What did the president know and when did he know it?"
Thank you Mr. Froomkin, it's about time someone in the mainstream press raises that question.
