Fitzgerald says he has little for probe

From Times Wire Reports

Special Prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald, who spent years investigating the 2003 leak of a CIA operative’s identity, told lawmakers that he could offer little help during congressional hearings on the leak.

Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Los Angeles) asked Fitzgerald last week to meet with members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which will hold hearings on the Bush administration’s handling of CIA operative Valerie Plame’s classified employment status.

In a letter to Waxman, Fitzgerald did not refuse to cooperate with the probe but made it clear he had little to say.
