Was Ari Fleischer the second leaker?

On Wednesday, we laid out the evidence suggesting grand jury investigators may believe he is. Now this, from the New York Daily News (via Carpetbagger):

Along with Bush political guru Karl Rove, the grand jury is investigating what role, if any, ex-White House mouthpiece Ari Fleischer may have played in the revelation that the former covert operative Plame was married to former Ambassador Joe Wilson.

“Ari’s name keeps popping up,” said one source familiar with special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald’s probe.

Another source close to the probe added there is renewed interest in Fleischer, “based on Fitzgerald’s questions.”
