Libby the victim of political witch hunt
Scooter Libby was convicted of a crime that would never have occurred if the Political operatives of the DNC and Democrat leadership in Congress had not insisted on an investigation into another crime that never occurred. Libby was convicted on charges of lieing to Federal Agents as well as a Federal Grand Jury, and Obstruction of Justice. Former President Bill Clinton committed the exact same offenses… perhaps Libby should receive the same sentence….

March 6, 2007 — Vice President Dick Cheney’s former chief of staff is now a convicted felon.
I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby has been found guilty of four of five charges in the CIA leak case stemming from a three-year investigation and trial that revealed the innermost workings of the top levels at the Bush White House.
A jury found Libby guilty of charges claiming he lied to the FBI and a grand jury, and obstructed justice.
The former White House aide faces as many as 25 years in prison and fines up to $1 million.
White House Deputy Press Secretary Dana Perino said that President Bush was in the Oval Office and watched reports on the verdict on television.
Perino acknowledged that the President respected the jury’s verdict although he is saddened for Scooter Libby and his family.
