New York Times:

WASHINGTON — The trial of I. Lewis Libby Jr., Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff, in the C.I.A. leak case will start next January, a federal judge said today.

District Judge Reggie B. Walton said jury selection will begin on Jan. 8, 2007. Judge Walton said that he had hoped the trial could begin next September, but that Mr. Libby’s lawyer, Theodore V. Wells Jr., will be tied up with another case. Republicans are likely to be pleased that the trial will be held after the Congressional elections.| story
