Fitzmas: More on Press Conference

* It's a serious charge; national security is involved.

* This is why accurate, honest testimony is so important.

* FBI interviewed Libby in 2003; Libby told FBI he was at "end of long chain of phone calls"; got info from Russert, then passed on to Cooper and Miller. He claimed to FBI he didn't know whether info was true.

* Under oath, he repeated same in testimony to GJ. "Just info he received; might be gossip." It is not true; Libby talked about Plame half dozen times before Russert. He did not learn from Russert.

He's VERY clear that the investigation of the leak is not over - this is just to get past Libby's obstruction.
