    Libby is convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice
    Last edited by vidcc; 03-07-2007 at 02:38 AM. Reason: change or to of

    it’s an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    Issuing and accepting a pardon would confirm guilt. At this stage Libby's lawyers (and many right wing pundits) are claiming a miscarriage of justice.

    saw somewhere that the max penalty is 25 years, obviously he won't get anywhere near that for this sort of level of crime, but if he does get any sort of reasonable jail time then i'd bet on a final day pardon from George.
    He couldn't let a friend go down for 'fighting the good fight'

    The Dems should change the pardoning rules.

    Clinton pardoning Mark Rich was a sham.

    I can't see how they would have the votes to do that.

    They could try. They could appeal loudly to Republican constituents' sense of logic about corruption and possibly get Republican congressman to vote their way.

    The limitless pardoning power allows for too much corruption. It circumvents the court process in appalling ways.

    One can break the law helping the President and the President gives them a GOJFC.

    If the Dems try to push it through and the Repubs stop them, it'll be yet another thing that Dems can use to say that Repubs don't wanna stamp out corruption.

    Well I've seen many cases put forward for a pardon, most of which have nothing to do with the crime he actually committed and some based just on the fact that they think Libby is "a nice guy" (as the jurist said)

    This one really stood out. It seems that one is not guilty upon conviction unless the convicted admits the guilt. Something to think about next time someone is convicted of a murder or rape
    Note the double standard on perjury.

    I have to say that listening to this shows the importance of an independent judicial system. One where (as in this case) guilt is determined on the facts of the case and the law.
