Give Firedoglake’s servers a break and head over to this thread at Kos. The Libby jury just handed down guilty verdicts on four out of the five charges against him.
As for what comes next, expect a pardon. The president has no personal stake in the next election and he could give a rat’s ass about public opinion. As for what would make him want to do it, I suspect that it means something that team Libby threatened to compel Cheney to testify and then reneged at the last minute. They didn’t put their own guy on the stand to defend himself. It almost seemed as if the defense didn’t care too deeply about winning.
We’ll see of course. But I suspect that justice for Scooter Libby will be short-lived.
