Breaking news. 4 of 5 counts.
It's about time one of these criminals does time for at least some of his crimes. Here's to Cheney being next.
Here's a link, for the link lovers.
Maximum of 25 years? Who smells a pardon?
Not a big surprise. Somebody had to be the fall guy.
Count 3 he was found not-guilty;
Let's see Sandy Burgler steals secret documents and destroys them and Clinton ejaculates on an intern in the White House and they are free and Libby gets convicted. Yeah, our criminal justice system is fair. I guess he should have used the "depends on what the meaning of is is" defense.
So you REALLY think that having sex with somebody is an offense that should be brought before court, tried, and that person sentenced to a maximum of 25 years? Get real.
i'm very very very very very very very surprised that you deflected the news of foul play by your own beloved party by complaining about democrats (of course clinton being the best). shocked. i just came to.
HAving sex is one thing, having it in the Oval Office or adjacent room and lying about it is another.
note to Clinton lovers: Please forgive this twisting of the knife.
How long have you been reading Swarmlord's posts? If it's been a while you should know the answer.
Wait, ejaculating on an intern is a crime!?
The question never should have been asked in the first place. And I'm not a Clinton lover, quite the opposite
Well Kenneth Star wasn't the best person for the job.
Christ. Apparently having sex in the oval office (who gives a ****?) is worse than disclosing a CIA agents identity to the press because her husband writes a critical op-ed in a newspaper about the Bush administration.
I've been reading for a while, but I thought maybe, just maybe he'd be able to admit his precious right-wing can do wrong just once. I guess not.
LOL, seems like it should be legal doesnt it?
This image looks oddly appropriate given the ongoing discussion:
apparently, he's going to appeal. if he and his lawyers can make that last until january 2009, maybe he will get his pardon.
Oh he will. Remember Iran-Contra? Like father, like son.
And it was so straight forward that he was guilty that it took the jury like 10 days to reach a verdict. What's funny is that none of the charges had anything to do with outing Plame in the first place.
I love this argument. All it boils down to is "...but..but..zomg....Clinton!!!11"
Meanwhile, Karl Rove and Dick Cheney walk.
One way or another, Libby will almost certainly not serve any prison time, but I don't really care. This trial revealed for anyone who cared to know how this White House uses its executive powers to bust the kneecaps of their critics. The Wilson's civil suit will be even further ranging, and more interesting to watch.
Anybody who tries to compare the Bush administration's efforts to destroy Joe Wilson for sole reason that he had the nerve to tell us the truth, to Clinton's dalliance with Monica Lewinsky, needs to have their pulse examined because they have apparently turned into a political cyborg.
Apparently you have not been following this case very closely. As the prosecutor said, the problem with obstruction of justice is that it obstructs justice. You can't get to the truth when people lie.
Besides, the importance of this event was not whether outing Plame was a crime. It was a political hit. Nobody can deny that now.
Resistance is futile!
As did Clinton and Burger. Let's call it a draw.
