Libby's Politics

Here is John Dean, former Presidential counselor, taking exception to the slant Presidential wannabe Fred Thompson and the lineup of Republican heavies angling for a pardon at the "Libby Legal Defense Trust" have taken respecting the conviction and yes, the very prosecution itself. Mr. Dean suggests that far from being over, the truth will never be told because of Libby's efforts. And of course, who else but the VP would know that Libby is "the most capable and talented individual" he has ever known, as he stated here.

Apparently, this was one of those mysterious political prosecutions that never would have happened in any jurisdiction except here.

On June 5, U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton will sentence Vice President Cheney's former chief of staff, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, who has been convicted of obstruction of justice, making false statements, and perjury, as the result of the Special Counsel investigation arising from the revelation of Valerie Plame's identity as a CIA agent. I suspect that Judge Walton's actions will create a difficult and delicate problem for the White House.
