How Much Longer?

Here’s a little nugget from the grapevine:

The Note is reporting the following:

Prosecutors deposed Woodward in anticipation of presenting that evidence to a new grand jury, according to a person familiar with the situation. And that is exclusive new news, courtesy of Dow Jones.

I know. I know. It’s The Note. But they are getting the information from another source, the WSJ.

And the WSJ is reporting the same thing.

Now, it is not new news that Fitz would have access to a grand jury, to whom to present newly acquired evidence. (At least, it shouldn’t be news for regular readers here.) But it is interesting that the WSJ speculates today (behind their subscription firewall) that Fitz is anticipating making use of them. Perhaps sooner rather than later.

Very interesting indeed. Stay tuned — more news on this as we get it.

(Hat tip to Mitch2k2 for the heads up on this.)
