Russert's credability questioned in Libby trial - AP

Associated Press story - not Fox or Wash. Times or Sean Hannity or
Rush Limbaugh.

Fitzgerald blocked a move to have Andrea Mitchell's words on the Don Imus
Show played in court - where she said in an interview she, and other
reporters, knew of Plame's job at the CIA. She later recanted that

Russert said he did not know of the Plame identity prior to talking
to Libby. Libby says Russert told him that at the end of one of their

No one is charged with the CIA leak law.
