VALERIE PLAME UPDATE....John Ashcroft has recused himself from the Valerie Plame investigation and appointed a special prosecutor, U.S. Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald of Chicago:

"The attorney general, in an abundance of caution, believed that his recusal was appropriate based on the totality of the circumstances and the facts and evidence developed at this stage of the investigation," [Deputy Attorney General James] Comey said at a news conference in Washington. "I agree with that judgment. And I also agree that he made it at the appropriate time, the appropriate point in this investigation."

That's interesting. The decision was based on the "facts and evidence developed at this stage of the investigation." I wonder what those facts and evidence are?

Stay tuned.
