The article reports that former U.S. chief of staff I. Lewis Libby hired Harvard University psychology professor Daniel Schacter, a memory expert, to help Libby with his legal defense in the obstruction of justice, perjury, and false statement charges. According to Schacter, there are explanations for why Libby told a grand jury that he first learned of Valerie Plame's employment with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from reporters. It is reported that Libby conveyed the information about Plame to reporters after learning of her CIA status from other officials.
