Presidential Pardons Were Made for Cases Like Scooter Libby's Last week, Vice President Dick Cheney's former Chief of Staff I.
Lewis "Scooter" Libby was convicted in federal court of perjury and obstruction of justice. Given the fact that it was one of the most highly politicized trials in years, the howls for a presidential pardon are widespread and deafening. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid publicly put pressure on President Bush to not pardon Libby by asking him to "pledge not to pardon Libby for his criminal conduct." However, Reid and pandora bracklet the Democrats are jousting at windmills on this one. The trial of Scooter Libby was brought by Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald because President Bush asked him to investigate the revealing of CIA operative Valerie Plame's name and covert status to a journalist. While Libby was convicted of misleading the investigation, he was never accused or convicted of the leak. In fact, it was State Department official Richard Armitage that actually revealed the agent's name. However, as the investigation progressed and the makeup pandora charm White House became the focus, things got messy and people started covering up. It is now widely believed that Scooter Libby was used as a scapegoat because he was positioned to take the fall for higher ups in the Bush administration. An extremely well liked and loyal Republican lawyer, Libby was unfortunately the lowest ranking pandora bracelet locations and least visible White House staffer who was potentially on Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald's radar screen. Compared to presidential advisor Karl Rove and Vice President Cheney, poor Scooter didn't stand a chance. However, before you start shedding tears for him (as a few of his jurors reportedly did), consider the following question: If no one on the White House staff was responsible for leaking Agent Valerie Plame's name, why did Libby lie to investigators? No one outside the White House knows that answer to that, however it seems likely that something was amiss that was worth lying about and Fitzgerald was getting too close to it. We may never know what was in that "Pandora's Box" was but some of the most powerful people in America were willing to lie to a federal grand jury about it and Libby may go to jail in order to keep it under cheap pandora jewelry bracelets wraps. Consider the fact that Libby did not use the scapegoat defense in his trial, nor did he attempt to embarrass the White House, who apparently served him up on a platter. Some say his generosity was his way of preserving the graces of the president. Also consider that the intense coverage of the Libby trial showed the jury was non partisan, thoughtful and extremely sympathetic towards Libby. The truth would have gone a long way with a jury like that. However, he simply repeated that he couldn't remember certain conversations. Given a lame defense and no one else to blame for his woes, the jury had no choice but to convict. As if someone is turning back the pages in history, this story line closely parallels the conviction of the Watergate burglars. Close ranks, don't talk, take the heat and trust the backroom promises. The appeals process in the Libby case will take years, possibly allowing Bush to use his pardon pen in the weeks between the 2008 presidential election and the day he leaves office.
That would spare Republican candidates any political discomfort from having to defend a pardon while on the campaign trail. Given the fact that Libby saluted, did what was asked of him and took a bullet for the White House, he is as deserving of a pardon as any politically motivated scapegoat. Only a truly innocent convict would be more deserving than former Chief of Staff Scooter Libby.
