The trial of Lewis "Scooter" Libby may be in hibernation while the former Cheney aide awaits sentencing and ponders an appeal, but Plame-ophiles will now have something else to occupy their attention: House Oversight Committee Chair Henry Waxman has just announced that his committee will be investigating the matter. (U.S. News's Liz Halloran has a roundup of the trial here.)
In a letter (pdf) to Patrick Fitzgerald, Waxman praised the special prosecutor's work in the case but said the matter of whether the White House adequately tried to protect the identity of Valerie Plame Wilson, an undercover CIA agent, remains unresolved.
Waxman asked Fitzgerald to meet with him to discuss what the prosecutor is legally able to include in a testimony. Wilson will also testify.
