Politico reports New York Times reporter James Risen won't be called to the witness stand at a leak trial for one of his alleged sources, but jurors may hear some of the words he uttered at a pre-trial hearing last week, according to lawyers and the judge overseeing the case. Both the prosecution and the defense in the case against former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling said definitively Monday that they will not call him as a witness at the trial set to begin with jury selection Tuesday morning. However, U.S. District Court Judge Leonie Brinkema turned down the prosecution's bid to block all testimony from Risen. She said the defense will be permitted to tell jurors about comments Risen made at a pre-trial hearing last week where he said he had mutiple sources for information in the chapter of his 2006 book "State of War" at the heart of the case. Prosecutors contend that chapter contains highly classified information Sterling leaked about a CIA effort to undermine Iran's nuclear program.
