Was Miller Trying To Cut a Deal a Year Ago?

This morning on CNN's Reliable Sources, Floyd Abrams told Howard Kurtz: "I tried to get a deal a year ago. I spoke to Mr. Fitzgerald, the prosecutor, and he did not agree at that time to something that he later did agree to, which was to limit the scope of the questions he would ask, so as to assure that the only source he would effectively be asking about was Mr. Libby." If this is true, it means Judy knew she had a waiver from Libby and was trying to cut a deal a year ago while she was deep into her Joan of 43rd Street routine.
