Scooter Libby was found guilty on four of five counts of perjury and obstruction of justice stemming from the probe into the leak of the identity of a non covert CIA agent named Valerie Plame. Though many people had poor recollections or lied under oath (if that is what Libby’s poor memory equates to), Libby was the one who eventually took the fall as Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald continued to push for answers even though he had discovered the leak three days after he started his investigation. Ironically, that person was never charged.

Libby now faces jail time but just how much is in question. If convicted on all five counts he could have received 30 years though federal sentencing guidelines allow much shorter sentences.

If George Bush really wants to drive the left over the top he should pardon Libby. That would lead to calls for impeachment from the group that defended Clinton when he pardoned criminals for payment. By the way, how much jail time did Clinton serve for the exact same crime Libby committed?

    I always heard that great minds think alike… I posted on this too..

    This one isn’t looking good for the ‘home’ team, it’s going to be interesting to see how it plays out too, and wouldn’t it be wild if the president gave Scooter a pardon while he won’t do a damn thing to help the wrongly convicted Border Patrol agents?? And just out of curiosity, didn’t Bill Clinton commit perjury?? He didn’t get thrown into prison for LYING, so why are the lefty libbers all ‘orgasmic’ right now?? Short memories I guess…

    I’m really angry. This man’s life has been ruined. He’ll never get out of the financial hole he’s in – even if Pres. Bush does the honorable thing and pardons him. This is simply a case of the left and its media handmaidens run amok. They could not believe there could be a White House that didn’t leak, mostly played by the rules and tried its best to protect the American people from terrorist attacks.

    There never should have been a trial. Once Fitzgerald figured out that no crime was committed, that should have been that. Why he persisted I’ll never know. He’s supposed to be a terrific lawyer and all that. He stiffed this one that’s for sure.
