Note: I worked for six years in the core group drafting the CIA Identities Law with its original sponsor, Senator Lloyd Bentsen.
It will be up to the judge to determine the legal status of the highly visible piece in the Outlook Section of the Sunday Washington Post that is a partisan attack on the prosecutor and the CIA and yet another smear attack against Joe Wilson.
Is this an attempt by the Washington Post to influence the jury after the defense has rested?
Is this an attempt to present arguments, facts and assertions to the jury that were not legally admissable at trial?
If the President refuses to make this pledge the Congress should immediately announce major hearings on this entire subject.
