Justice, even if, as everyone knows, he was the fall guy:

Libby Sentenced to 30 Months in Prison, Fined $250K

I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, former chief of staff to Vice President Cheney, was sentenced today to 30 months in prison and fined $250,000 for lying to investigators about his role in leaking the identity of an undercover CIA officer.

The federal judge who presided over the case indicated that he may not be sympathetic to allowing Libby to remain free pending appeal, but scheduled a hearing on the matter for next week.

"Evidence in this case overwhelmingly indicated Mr. Libby's culpability," U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton said moments before he handed out the sentence...


....Prosecutors successfully argued that Libby had lied repeatedly to the FBI and a grand jury about how and when he learned about Plame's identity--and what he told reporters about her.

In the court filing that sought Libby's prison term, Fitzgerald emphasized that Libby's lies prevented investigators from learning the full truth about the campaign to discredit Wilson, and may have helped conceal another administration official's criminal leaks. Fitzgerald noted that Cheney was one of the first people to tell Libby about Plame, and that Libby has testified that Cheney and he may have talked about sharing information about Plame with reporters.

He ain't down.... the creep will just stretch out his appeals until his co-conspirator pardons him. His posse isn't in jail yet - they are still in charge at the White House.

Okay, how?Aw c'mon, Frankie... that one's easy! Libs thought is was a farce to spend millions of dollars and years digging into anything and everything in a naked political attempt to pin something, anything on Clinton. They finally nailed him for lying about a blow job under oath. Now, we openly support prosecution of a guy for obstructing justice in the investigation of the outing of a covert CIA agent in time of war. But you see.... one of the charges against the traitor is the same as the charge against Clinton - perjury. So now we're hippocrites because we thought the Whitewater witchunt was stupid, but we think outing the CIA agent was wrong. See?
