Pardon for Libby? By TPM Muckraker Justin Rood:
Will the White House pardon Lewis "Scooter" Libby, the Leaking Lackey, in an attempt to cover up its own messes? Longtime GOP courtier Joe DiGenova tells the LA Times yes:The special prosecutor [Patrick Fitzgerald] signaled in his court filing last week that he intended to call several former Bush aides as witnesses against Libby, including former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell and former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer -- raising the specter of court proceedings that could lay bare the inner workings of the White House.
"I can't imagine this case going to trial," DiGenova said. "You'll see a pardon first."
The White House has refused to say whether Bush might pardon Libby, citing its policy of not commenting on the case.
