I support this war. I am now considered a criminal in the justice system. Lock me up with Libby!!

Extraneus

Interesting opportunity for Bush to change the subject, get the nutroots into a nice frothy lather, mend a fence or two on his own side, etc.

I'd think about sending Cheney out to make the announcement, personally.

No surprise really; now the question is, will Bush have the courage to step in, and act, as he should?

Carol_Herman

Sure, "surprised" is one word you could use.

Or you could observe the "randomly chosen lot" of 3 judges, found they could grab this ball, because it "related" to Judith Miller. Ho hum.

The other thing I notice is that the robe wonders WANT people to be terrified of them.

Well, you'd be terrified, if before the knife went in, you discovered your surgeon was incompetent! But fully credentialed, just the same, wouldn't ya?

SLOW NEWS DAY.

That's also worth notice-ing. Just because blokes go to law school, doesn't really make them smart.

There are very few good judges in this world.

And, I'd bet the "punt" of Libby to jail is also an attempt to bring Dubya out from hiding.

Is sending Libby to jail any different than watching a robed-wonder sending Paris Hilton to the hoosegow? The deputy district attorney, who got this "gift" happens to have a wife who also drove on a suspended license.

Most of the time the robed wonders think they can get away with almost anything. (Ah, except the dude who used a penis pump while seated at his bench. Was that a work accident waiting to happen, or what?)

No respect for the scum just because they wear robes. On par with the Cardinals' hats that covered up the rape of children.

You think most people hold our court system up to respect? Then you haven't met people who've received subpeonas to show up for jury duty. Get a clue.

Seems like a good time to note a recent column on the limits of the Presidential pardon power when persecuted by particular prosecutors[such alliteration!].

John Dean, someone who knows a little about investigations into White House misbehavior, has a new Findlaw column.

In it, he compares Libby's likely sentence with those given his former colleagues in the Nixon administration and warns that Libby could be further prosecuted under conspiracy statutes were he or Cheney to directly request a pardon.

Good stuff.

Dean's ruminations

clarice

Frankly, I find almost everything Dean writes balderdash and will skip is.

Beldar reminds that Roberts is the Justice who handles emergency appeals from the D C Circuit.

Walter

good stuff

... in an ironical sense, bien sur.

Charlie (Colorado)

Feh. The notion that Fitzgerald could prosecute Cheney for asking Bush for a pardon for Libby seems like just a *bit* of a strtch.

manys

As someone else mentioned, this surely renders obvious the joining of Patel, et al to the conspiracy against Dick Cheney. How soon is it to begin disbarment proceedings against Fitzgerald and the rest of them?

epphan

Holy Cow. Where do I go to get my eight minutes back after reading that hogwash from Dean. That's a scary kind of stupid.

Well, you'd be terrified, if before the knife went in, you discovered your surgeon was incompetent! But fully credentialed, just the same, wouldn't ya?

I'd be even more scared if I found out my neurosurgeon doctor is a terrorist car bomber.

David Walser

I shouldn't be surprised nor should I be depressed over this decision. I am both. How can the constitutionality of the SC's appointment not be a close question? It's primarily, if not entirely, a question of law, which means the appellate court owes the lower court no deference. There is no precedent or authority directly on point (because no one has EVER been appointed in the same manner as Fitzgerald, with the same sweeping powers, with the same lack of supervision, and in defiance of established regulations) and strong, cogent arguments can be made on both sides of the question. Is not this the dictionary example of a "close question"? How, then, did this panel conclude the appeal provided no close questions?

Again, I should not be surprised, depressed, or upset, but I am, now, all three. I think I'll stop writing before I add enraged to the list.

Pal2Pal (Sara)

On this day in history:

1788 - It was announced in the U.S. Congress that the new Constitution had been ratified by the required nine states, the ninth being New Hampshire.

Note: 12 years from 1776 to 1788, yet we expect Iraq to have accomplished everything in 4 years. It took us 12 years just to get our Constitution in place, let alone a government in place under that Constitution.

And how many people think our Constitution would get ratified today? Never happen.

danking

My biggest surprise is that judges ruled that it's OK to jail reporters over perjury charges.

Wonderful precedence...

maryrose

Like every other ruling in this case the ultimate judgment is flawed and wrongly decided. I now believe this is their way of making an example of Libby and that now he is the scapegoat. All other attempts to get back at the Bush administration have failed so they are pinning the tail on Libby. They want to achieve a direct on cheney but he has out manuevered them from the start. This case is not based on the merits at any point. it is a partisan exercise and an over power play. Of course right now President bush can trump them and I hope he does. Their futile attempt to get Gonzalez has blown up in their faces. They continue to show their true partisan hack colors which accounts for their abysmal ratings.A travesty of justice is occurring right under our noses.

I Blame Bush!!!!!

Vail Beach

This is a terrible system, and it's the conservative Congress of the mid-1980s who are to blame. A convicted felon (Libby, an unlucky pothead, a SOX violator) first asks the judge who presided over his or her trial for bail relief during the appeal. Uh, no, says the judge. No, I didn't violate your constitutional rights, thank you very much.

Then the defendant takes the case to a three-judge emergency appellate panel, who make their ruling based on a quick sketch of the defendants' appeals case; with the law telling them they should err on the side of denying bail.

Ever since Michael Dukakis' wipeout, our country has not had a political party dedicated to civil liberties as the term used to be understood. When Gov. Bill Clinton executed a retarded man during his 1992 campaign, he was sending a signal to the Democratic party that it was time to drop this civil liberties crap, it's a Willie-Horton loser. Since then, the Democrats have joined the Republicans in searching for amendments to the constitution they can ignore for political gain.

It would be ironic, but very desirable, if the Libby case caused the Republican party and conservatives to take up the cause of civil liberties. There are ample reasons for them to do that beyond Libby. The prosecutorial branch of the government has simply gone off the rails, and the judiciary isn't doing enough to steer them back.

SunnyDay

So, what in the case they cited in the decision? or was that discussed already. I'm sorry, I stay way behind unless it's troll-propelled, then I stay away.

We can expect no opinion, I take it. sigh. I do hope bush intervenes, but my hopes are dwindling. I agree, they have not been able to get Cheney or eeevil Rove, or even get close to Bush, so Libby it is.

Another casualty of the Iraq war. Like Ollie North, his sacrifice is one that is not honored.

clarice

The UK Times reports that the third doctor was arrested. His family says it was because he was using the cell phone of one of the men the police are looking for. How can that be? The only "evidence" that Atta was not meeting with Iraqi intel in Prague when the Czechs say he was is--ta da--someone used his cell phone in Fla at the time of the meeting.

SlimGuy

If I were a Jewish patient in the NHS system I would be worried that a "Asian" doctor would turn me into another failed surgery statistic.

Sort of the slow bleed rather than the final solution.

My advice to Mr Libby,Scoot,Venezuela beckons,write the book,make the movie,should recoup you legal fees on the book deal alone.Shake hands with Hugo,don't swap spit,you could make Attorney General in any Democrat administration.

Yeah like Atta had this really cool new Iphone rather than a freebie throw away from some provider that his room mate used to call a 1-900 hot date hunny line.

Sure he couldn't have had a backup cellphone or three that was directly hardwired to a cave in the mountains for a code word talk scam update that sounded like something totally innocent.

The attempted London car bombings were meant to be detonated by calls to mobile phones in the two vehicles, but failed for technical reasons, the Evening Standard reported Monday.
The calls made on the phones allowed police to trace those behind the failed attacks last Friday, the London daily evening newspaper said, without giving sources.

The phones were meant to set off blasts when they were called, but the devices failed to detonate the mixture of gas canisters and nails in the two Mercedes cars parked in London's entertainment district.

The bombers twice called the car outside the "Tiger Tiger" nightclub on Haymarket off Piccadilly Circus and the one in nearby Cockspur Street off Trafalgar Square four times, it added. "

I'm so happy. Jim Engle--Pres has already signed the papers.

President Bush will pardon Scooter Libby, thereby keeping the issue a political matter and keeping the focus on his administration. The pipe dream of adhering to the principle that the pursuit of justice requires truthful testimony will again, as it was in the Clinton case, be subverted and overpowered by the force of overt political partisanship.

Other than substituting commutation for pardon, I think this was accurate.

Gibson or somebody said that Bush will get a lot of bashing from the media but will please the Conservatives.

Oh, what a relief!

Shame Libby still has to pay that fine but no prison time is great for an innocent man.

One of the articles at memeorandum claims that Libby's arguments were weak.

Let's hope Bush will stand by Meirs and Taylor as well as not honor those stupid subponeas.

Think Bush had made a gross error back in year 2003 with his "no leak" comments.

kim

Translated bottom line: Libby was found guilty by a jury of his "peers" (I suppose his defense fund would actually be his peers) and bailed out by the President of the US (his boss) after a panel of judges found (absolutely) no reason for appeal - contrary to most all comentary here.

Another reason to reflect upon all the damage this incompetent Administration (and its loyal supporters) has done to our country over the past years on this Independence Day.

SMGalbraith

Gonna' be interesting to see how Fitzgerald responds to this.

He's not finished up his work.

If Bush had the smarts to replace Gonzales, his successor would have had one free swing to request (ahem) that Fitzgerald close up shop. But Gonzales doesn't have the cache to make such a move.

The most dangerous place in D.C. will be any spot between a television camera and Chuckie Schumer.

Well, especially dangerous.

Man, Chuckie will be in fine form tomorrow. Lord almighty, if bloviating were an Olympic event, he'd be a one person East German women's swim team. No drugs needed.

The pipe dream of adhering to the principle that the pursuit of justice requires truthful testimony

it also requires ethical prosecutors

Do you think Fitz was ethical in this prosecution?

Pal2Pal (Sara)

Angle is reporting that the statement says the President feels the sentence was "excessive" even though he respects the process that led to the conviction.

Elliott

From the President's statement, posted at Hot Air:

Mr. Libby was sentenced to thirty months of prison, two years of probation, and a $250,000 fine. In making the sentencing decision, the district court rejected the advice of the probation office, which recommended a lesser sentence and the consideration of factors that could have led to a sentence of home confinement or probation.
topsecretk9

Lurker - fitz argued his actions could be "supervised' via the public record and the President has the authority to remove him - I was being facetious.

Rick Ballard

"He could (probably would) lose the appeal."

Cboldt,

First - thanks for your work in maintaining a usable archive. I appreciate the effort involved.

Second - I don't understand the downside with a commutation in his pocket. The sentence can't be reimposed if he loses so the "risk" is the cost of the appeal. I believe that disbarment is mandatory with a commuted sentence so there is a livelihood factor involved should he decide to proceed. If he has the dough - why not appeal?

clarice

I doubt that anything short of a public hanging would satisfy Chuck or Kim, though I must point out even the claimed offense pales before the Burger offense which resulted in far less than this now commuted sentence does.

topsecretk9

here is the presidents statement - now he should move to declassify FLAMES file.

President's statement (AP):
[quote]The United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit today rejected Lewis Libby's request to remain free on bail while pursuing his appeals for the serious convictions of perjury and obstruction of justice. As a result, Mr. Libby will be required to turn himself over to the Bureau of Prisons to begin serving his prison sentence.

I have said throughout this process that it would not be appropriate to comment or intervene in this case until Mr. Libby's appeals have been exhausted. But with the denial of bail being upheld and incarceration imminent, I believe it is now important to react to that decision.

From the very beginning of the investigation into the leaking of Valerie Plame's name, I made it clear to the White House staff and anyone serving in my administration that I expected full cooperation with the Justice Department. Dozens of White House staff and administration officials dutifully cooperated.

After the investigation was under way, the Justice Department appointed United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois Patrick Fitzgerald as a special counsel in charge of the case. Mr. Fitzgerald is a highly qualified, professional prosecutor who carried out his responsibilities as charged.

This case has generated significant commentary and debate. Critics of the investigation have argued that a special counsel should not have been appointed, nor should the investigation have been pursued after the Justice Department learned who leaked Ms. Plame's name to columnist Robert Novak. Furthermore, the critics point out that neither Mr. Libby nor anyone else has been charged with violating the Intelligence Identities Protection Act or the Espionage Act, which were the original subjects of the investigation. Finally, critics say the punishment does not fit the crime: Mr. Libby was a first-time offender with years of exceptional public service and was handed a harsh sentence based in part on allegations never presented to the jury.

Others point out that a jury of citizens weighed all the evidence and listened to all the testimony and found Mr. Libby guilty of perjury and obstructing justice. They argue, correctly, that our entire system of justice relies on people telling the truth. And if a person does not tell the truth, particularly if he serves in government and holds the public trust, he must be held accountable. They say that had Mr. Libby only told the truth, he would have never been indicted in the first place.

Both critics and defenders of this investigation have made important points. I have made my own evaluation. In preparing for the decision I am announcing today, I have carefully weighed these arguments and the circumstances surrounding this case.

Mr. Libby was sentenced to 30 months of prison, two years of probation and a $250,000 fine. In making the sentencing decision, the district court rejected the advice of the probation office, which recommended a lesser sentence and the consideration of factors that could have led to a sentence of home confinement or probation.

I respect the jury's verdict. But I have concluded that the prison sentence given to Mr. Libby is excessive. Therefore, I am commuting the portion of Mr. Libby's sentence that required him to spend 30 months in prison.

My decision to commute his prison sentence leaves in place a harsh punishment for Mr. Libby. The reputation he gained through his years of public service and professional work in the legal community is forever damaged. His wife and young children have also suffered immensely. He will remain on probation. The significant fines imposed by the judge will remain in effect. The consequences of his felony conviction on his former life as a lawyer, public servant and private citizen will be long-lasting.

The Constitution gives the president the power of clemency to be used when he deems it to be warranted. It is my judgment that a commutation of the prison term in Mr. Libby's case is an appropriate exercise of this power.[/quote]

lurker9876

Based on Bush's comment about Libby's sentence being excessive, wonder if this sounds like Walton is being put on notice?

Bush decided that he should believe in the verdict by the jury panel.

Libby should continue with the appeal process if he has the money to do so.

But Libby will at least be making probably far more money working in the private industry. Libby is working for Heritage Foundation, right?

BobS

Its seems that the President already had this in mind and that there was no way he was going to let Libby go to jail. Its good that John Roberts was not put in a position to have to act. Now perhaps Gonzales will grow a pair and shut down Fitzgerald and send him back to Chicago work on his political career.

Independence Day does have a new meaning this year! Libby is Free!!

Libby was working for a FOundation but they had to let him go when he was convicted. It wasn't Heritage. Momentarily I cannot recall it's name.

2 Bush Appointees say question neither close nor raises substantial question

but the Criminal Bush, recognizing that Libby blocked his own lying and criminal activity removed his prison sentence. He also recognized that many white aristocrats who are traitors, like Libby are pussies who can't do their very small amount of time.

Libby remains disbared. His stinking ass has been replaced in the White House by two other stinking asses.

Armitage leaking has no bearing on the traitorous act that Libby took instructions from the Criminal Cheney and leaked a CIA agent's identity to Matt Cooper and the Lying Scumbag and Fired Scumbag Judy Miller.

Maybe whatever publication allows the anemic vocabulary of your Queen Goddess Clarice who does not seem to be able to write articulately or well will hire Judy Miller, but no one else will.

Onto the criminal contempt of Bush and Cheney by Congress.

White aristocratic pussies who are traitors apparently aren't supposed to do their time.

Let's make it clear. The 3 judge panel with two Republican apointees was unaminmous. The question was neither close nor warantting appeal.

Libby can still try to appeal his conviction--including his probation, the fine, and his conviction of obstruction and purgery.

The millions of dollars spent on Wells and Robbins has yielded no victory, and as I said many times, Robbins' briefs were pathetic and the 3 judge panel agreed with me.

This will be an additional issue of course in the taking of the White House in 2008 by any of 4 democratic candidates who can stomp the lobbying Thompson family, should Thompson grow a pair to run.

Romney will be easily beaten, and it looks like Bloomberg is going to take a lot of votes from either of them. The rest of the clowns don't stand a chance for the Republican nomination. To date the only data Thompson has provided, is his lobbying of his close friends for money. Criminal Bush's statement scolds Libby for doing the same kind of lying that he and Cheney do every day. I do not have the Criminal Bush's statement yet. Maybe you can fly so-called attorney Clarice to Kinneybunkport or she can just sayshay over to the West Wing to get it.
