CONTEMPT ROUNDUP....Which journalists have testified before the grand jury investigating the Valerie Plame case? Hard to say. But here's the best summary I can come up with:

That's all I can find for now. But one thing stands out pretty clearly: we now know that at least five reporters have been either subpoenaed or questioned in some way by federal prosecutors. Given that, what are the odds that Novak, the central figure in all this, hasn't been? Add to that the fact that (a) he refuses to comment about the investigation and (b) he isn't being charged with contempt, and the most likely conclusion is that he squealed.

Or so it seems to me. It probably won't be much longer until we find out for sure.
