Armitage ousted her. Libby has been exonerated. Why the hate?

Judith Miller or you? Hmmmm? I go with a reporter that went to jail rather than give up sources 10 of 10 times.

You lose.

Judith Miller is a fraud. She was one of the biggest supporters of Sadam having WMD’s. Plames husband was right, not Miller. She is not to be trusted ever.

Libby was pardoned, just like Sheriff Joe. That is not exoneration.

Not what I said.

He has been exonerated by history, everyone knows he did not leak Plame's name, the prosecution was a farce, Judith Miller went to bat for him, a judge reinstated his license to practice law. The pardon is the cherry on top.

He was more a victim then Plame ever was.
Thanks from Jimgorn

Then he attacks a reporter who went to jail to protect her source. So many miserable haters out there.

And Plame was well known in Washington as a CIA agent, it was a known fact. It was a miserable prosecution by a special counsel with no regard for facts.

Here is part of the White House statement regarding the reasoning for the pardon:
Today, President Donald J. Trump issued an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) to I. “Scooter” Lewis Libby, former Chief of Staff to Vice President Richard Cheney, for convictions stemming from a 2007 trial. ...In 2015, one of the key witnesses against Mr. Libby recanted her testimony, stating publicly that she believes the prosecutor withheld relevant information from her during interviews that would have altered significantly what she said. The next year, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals unanimously reinstated Mr. Libby to the bar, reauthorizing him to practice law. The Court agreed with the District of Columbia Disciplinary Counsel, who stated that Mr. Libby had presented “credible evidence” in support of his innocence, including evidence that a key prosecution witness had “changed her recollection of the events in question.”
