The Plame Grand Jury Process

In this week when we may well get Grand Jury indictments of the President’s men as far up as Cheney, it’s useful to understand the Grand Jury process and its basis in the constitution.  A Diary by kant at Dailykos gives us a great primer on the role and independence of the Grand Jury and some insight into this particular Grand Jury investigating the outing of a CIA agent as 1) revenge for her husband’s truth-telling and 2) as a means of stopping further discussion of the deliberate campaign of misinformation that took us into the Iraq War.

It's also a nice reminder that this duty rests on more shoulders than just Patrick Fitzgerald's, the prosecutor.  He seems quite cool but he has company in the Grand Jury.
