Will Scooter skate?

The judge in the CIA leak case ruled Thursday that if Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald feels that admitting certain classified documents at the upcoming trial of I Lewis "Scooter" Libby can jeopardize national security, Fitzgerald can then move to dismiss the perjury charges against Libby.
The judge says the Plame case can be dismissed on state secrets? The White House leaked the damn secrets already. The only classified information left in this case is how the Bush administration manipulated the lies to keep the public in the dark about their treasonous activities.

Convicting Scooter of lying to the grand jury is beside the point. The whole value of the case rests on exactly that information being made public. There's nothing there that will compromise national security - it's GOP security they're protecting. It would only prove Bush commited an impeachable crime. I sure hope Fitzgerald doesn't cave.

I say let libby and rove go. their lying on the stand speaks for itself, we owe them no apology, but armitage is the guy who spilled the beans. as far as the stuff before hand cheney and co were saying about wilson, it's dirty but no illegal. and honestly, I can see why they lied. they were the presidents team and it was a pretty crucial time, they didn't want to be pulled away from Iraq and 04 elections and whatnot. throw the book at armitage. he seems like a total mess anyway.

Lester, Fitz's case is all about their lying under oath. He's not addressing the Plame leak. Armitage should be indicted under seperate charges of treason but it will never happen.

let em go. if lying under oath had been a precedent for jail time, we'd have lost clinton. they ;earned their lesson: you play with fire you get burned

Well Rove is not at issue since he was never indicted but Libby shouldn't skate just because his defense would expose the White House for the liars they are.
