UPI intelligence correspondent, Richard Sale just broke huge news in the Justice Department's investigation into the outing of Joe Wilson's wife, Valerie Plame, as a covert CIA operative:

Federal law-enforcement officials said that they have developed hard evidence of possible criminal misconduct by two employees of Vice President Dick Cheney's office related to the unlawful exposure of a CIA officer's identity last year. The investigation, which is continuing, could lead to indictments, a Justice Department official said.

According to these sources, John Hannah and Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis "Scooter" Libby, were the two Cheney employees. "We believe that Hannah was the major player in this," one federal law-enforcement officer said.

UPDATE 2/6: Josh Marshall digs up questions about Hannah's involvement.
