'NY Times' Gets 2 More Subpoenas in Plame Case
NEW YORK - The New York Times has received two more subpoenas from prosecutors investigating who leaked the identity of former CIA officer Valerie Plame to the press, E&P has learned.
The subpoenas, one for reporter Judith Miller and one for the Times, seek documents and other records related to the paper's reporting on Plame. Miller received a previous subpoena on Aug. 11 compelling her to testify before a federal grand jury investigating the case. The two latest subpoenas arrived over the weekend.
"We now have a total of three subpoenas," Times spokeswoman Catherine Mathis said today. "We will either have to comply or file a motion to quash by Aug. 20. The Times will move to quash."
The subpoenas are the latest in a string of actions taken in recent weeks against journalists by Special Prosecutor Patrick J. Fitzgerald, who is leading the investigation into the Plame identity leak.
