Scooter Libby hasn’t even been tried yet, let alone convicted.
There can be no “pre-emptive” pardons. That would only indicate that guilt is presumed (which we know is the position of some).
COgirl at Hang Right Politics thinks a pardon should wait until after the elections, I think it should wait for a conviction (if there ever will be one). I wonder if the Scooter Libby case might not quietly go away…
The Wilson’s lawyer seems to be saying that they won’t be adding Armitage to the suit against Cheney, Rove and Rumsfeld because he wasn’t ‘a part of the conspiracy‘(paraphrase). Joe, listen to the WaPo, it was you and you alone who “outed” your wife and that wasn’t even a crime because there was no “outing”
