Former White House aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby was convicted Tuesday of obstruction, perjury and lying to the FBI in an investigation into the leak of a CIA operative’s identity.
Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, was accused of lying and obstructing the investigation into the 2003 leak of CIA operative Valerie Plame’s identity to reporters.
He was acquitted of one count of lying to the FBI.
Well, you have to tell the truth. But, this is a politically contrived and complicated case.
First, the appeal which will drag on for years and then a pardon if the appeal fails.
Flap doubts Libby will ever see the inside of a jail cell.
