''More Blogging from the White House''

"The last question asked during the briefing was interesting too:

Q: There has been a lot of speculation concerning the meaning of the underlying statute in the grand jury investigation concerning Mr. Rove. The question is, have the legal counsel to the White House or White House staff reviewed the statute in sufficient specificity to determine whether a violation of that statute would, in effect, constitute treason?
MR. McCLELLAN: I think that in terms of decisions regarding the investigation, those are matters for those overseeing the investigation to decide.

That question was asked by Paul Sanford, a lawyer from Aptos, California, who has just been accredited as a White House reporter for Air America Radio. Today was his first day in the briefing room. We met while going through security, and I was able to give him some pointers on what to expect during the briefing. Welcome to the White House, Paul, and great question!"-from the post on BTC News. I wonder how many more questions he will get to ask.
