Raw Story has just broken it. David Wurmser is one of John Bolton's aides and attended several of the WHIG meetings

This suggests, once again, that Fitzgerald is looking to bring conspiracy charges:
The revelation that Hannah and Wurmser have become prosecution witnesses, as well as being identified as the original sources of the leak, indicates Fitzgerald now may be looking into the motive for outing Plame and how Administration officials sought to derail a vocal critic of Iraq intelligence.
Also note that Joe Wilson himself suspected Hannah and Wurmser's involvement. From his book, The Politics of Truth:
“John Hannah and David Wurmser, mid-level political appointees in the vice-president’s office, have both been suggested as sources of the leak....Mid-level officials, however, do not leak information without the authority from a higher level.”
Wurmser is a former American Enterprise Institute fellow, supporter of Chalabi's INC, and close friend of Richard Perle. Perle wrote the introduction to Wurmser's 'Tyranny's Ally: America's Failure to Defeat Saddam Hussein.'

Update [2005-10-19 15:29:21 by jorndorff]: SusanHu also has some new info over at BooTrib on additional officials coming under close scrutiny...
As MSNBC reporter David Shuster gave his latest report on the CIA leak case, I madly jotted down names of those from V.P. Cheney's office under the most intense scrutiny, including John Hannah, WHIG member Mary Matalin and two names new to me in connection with Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation -- David Wurmser and Cathie Martin..
