“Former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer testified Monday that then-colleague I. Lewis ‘Scooter’ Libby told him over lunch that the wife of a prominent war critic worked at the CIA,” the AP reports. “Fleischer said the conversation happened July 7, 2003, days before Libby told investigators he was surprised to learn about the CIA operative from a reporter. That discrepancy is at the heart of Libby’s perjury and obstruction trial.”
