Libby Witness Grossman Caught in Major Inconsistencies

Marc Grossman, who came across as cool and cooperative in yesterday’s testimony, is bumbling and unhelpful today. Defense attorney Ted Wells asked him why, in two separate interviews with the FBI prior to his appearance before the grand jury, he told them that he had relayed information about Joe Wilson’s Niger trip by telephone but he is now telling the jury that it was in face-to-face meetings. He can not explain this.

Further, he told the FBI different things than he has told the jury about whether he had conversations with Colin Powell and Richard Armitage about the Wilson matter.

If nothing else, this seems to bolster the defense argument that busy men get confused about dates, conversations, and the like.
