Well, isn’t THIS interesting:

A federal prosecutor investigating the dismissal of nine U.S. attorneys during the Bush administration has issued a subpoena to former senator Pete V. Domenici (R-N.M.) and is preparing to interview key witnesses, lawyers following the case say….

…she will interview former White House political affairs deputy J. Scott Jennings as early as today, lawyers involved in the case said. Jennings worked alongside Karl Rove, a top aide to President George W. Bush.

Jennings will "cooperate to the best of his ability" and is not a target in the case, lawyer Mark R. Paoletta said yesterday.

Through lawyer Robert D. Luskin, Rove also has said he will cooperate with Dannehy’s investigation. K. Lee Blalack, an attorney for Domenici, declined to comment.

In recent weeks, Dannehy has requested documents through a grand jury operating out of the federal courthouse in Washington….

"Lawyers following the case"? Are we back on the Luskin-go-round-leak-a-thon again? Or is this someone else with a score to settle?  

Marcy had a few guesses on witnesses after Murray’s reporting the other day. Personally, I’m intrigued by Scott Jennings’ potential, myself. Funny how once you get outside the nest of vipers things don’t look so solid sometimes.

Popcorn, anyone…
