Cheney talks; Wilson balks

from WAPO,
Vice President Cheney is willing to testify in the perjury and obstruction-of-justice trial of his former chief of staff that is scheduled to begin next month, according to defense lawyers and sources familiar with his plans.
from Fox,
Former ambassador Joseph Wilson asked a federal judge Wednesday not to force him to testify in the CIA leak case and accused former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby of trying to harass him on the witness stand.
But Wilson's lawyer doesn't mind trying the case in the media. From MSNBC
A federal judge strongly admonished an attorney for former ambassador Joseph Wilson for her appearance yesterday on MSNBC's program "Hardball" where she predicted a jury can find I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby guilty of making false statements.

U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton writes in an opinion today, "the Court would not tolerate this case being tried in the media."
