Writing about Scooter Libby dropping the appeal of his conviction on perjury and obstruction charges, Matt Appuzzo of the Associated Press says:
"Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald had no comment Monday and has said the leak investigation is closed."
I’m going to assume this is a bad paraphrase, because the investigation is not closed, not as long as the Office of Special Counsel is still open.
I contacted Fitzgerald spokesman Randall Samborn on the matter who said, predictably, "no comment." But if there was no Office of Special Counsel open, he couldn’t exactly be speaking on the matter, now could he.
