Raw Story (grain of salt alert), is reporting that the NSA leak probe is probing all over Capital Hill.

"The agents and Justice Department officials are investigating whether any of the 15 current and former Members briefed earlier this decade about the National Security Agency spying program were a source for a New York Times report about the issue last December.

There are also indications from at least one Senator, Ted Stevens (R-Alaska), that the FBI is asking Members about comments of theirs that appeared in other publications regarding the NSA program.

The interviews, which came about after extensive negotiations this spring between the Justice Department and the counsels for the House and Senate, are taking place in Members’ Congressional offices, usually with two FBI agents and one Justice Department lawyer in attendance. Members are also permitted to have a House or Senate counsel on hand if they wished.

Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL), House Intelligence Chairman Pete Hoekstra (R-MI), House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) have already been interviewed. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) is expected to be interviewed soon.

It’s unclear whether the federal investigators believe this leak came from Capitol Hill. Lawmakers did not give specifics of their questioning to ROLL CALL."

Let's get one thing clear from the outset and you can take it with more than a grain of salt. There is ONE very clear target of this investigation and we all know who. Which is the reason (backache my eye) he has been so "absent" of recent. Investigators have known from the beginning the who and where of their focus and subsequent interviews have been in additional support of the original thesis.

H/t to Stop the ACLU and AJ Srata for the heads up.
