Nice try Bucko.....Clinton lost his Law license for 5 years....That was the penalty for lying to a Federal Judge, Susan Weber Wright.. a student of his...Once he served his penalty he got his license back....Whereas, Libby lost his license because Fitzgerald got a Bogus perjury charge to stick..a felony....The DC Bar saw it was a bogus charge and immediately restored Libby's law license.......Diversion...Fail!!

Are you denying that Clinton was penalized and served the sentence???

Here is how Wiki explains the Libby thing;

Libby was sentenced to 30 months in prison and fined $250,000. The sentence was commuted in June 2007 by President Bush, voiding the prison term. The convictions no longer stand on the record because Libby was pardoned by President Trump on 13 April, 2018.[1]

On April 3, 2007, the District of Columbia Bar suspended his license to practice law in Washington, D.C., and recommended his disbarment pending his appeal of his conviction.[2] On March 20, 2008, after he dropped his appeal, he was disbarred by the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, in Washington, D.C., at least until 2012.[3] He delayed reinstatement until June 2016, when he successfully petitioned the court for reinstatement. He was readmitted to the D.C. bar on November 3, 2016.[4]

In the District of Columbia Court of Appeals Disciplinary Counsel's Report reinstating Libby's law license, the Counsel noted that Libby had continued to assert his innocence. As a result, the Counsel had to "undertake a more complex evaluation of a Petition for reinstatement" than when a petitioner admits guilt. But the Counsel found that "Libby has presented credible evidence in support of his version of events and it appears that one key prosecution witnesses (sic), Judith Miller, has changed her recollection of the events in question."[5] The reference to Judith Miller, a former New York Times reporter, involved her memoir, The Story, A Reporter's Journey. In the book, Miller said she read Plame's memoir and discovered that Plame's cover was at the State Department, a fact Miller said the prosecution had withheld from her. In rereading what she called her "elliptical" notes (meaning hard to decipher), she realized they were about Plame's cover, not her job at the CIA. She concluded that her testimony that Libby had told her Plame worked at the CIA was wrong. "Had I helped convict an innocent man?" she asked.[6] Miller went on to note that John Rizzo, a former CIA general counsel, had said in his memoir that there was no evidence that the outing of Plame had caused any damage to CIA operations or agents, including Plame.[7] That statement rebuts the prosecution's closing argument that as a result of the disclosure of Plame's identity, a CIA operative could be "arrested, tortured, or killed." [8] [9]


See the first sentence: Libby will have the convictions removed from his record, by this pardon. It is also interesting, or should be, to read the and remember what is said about Judith million, NYT reporter at the end of the article.

The subject of this thread has nothing to do with Re-trying Libby has nothing to do with the subject of this thread. Spumante hijacked the thread to discuss that.

As I said earlier, every single individual in the Bush inner circle should be facing life in prison or else hanged forthwith. Cheney would make a splendid choice for first to be hanged.

The Iraq War irreversibly destroyed the belief in the US as a force for positive inspiration and change. It was always a dream to an extent. The US is an empire, and it will squash you if you get in its way. But after the fall of the Iron Curtain, the end of the Cold War, and the universal outpouring of sympathy for us after 911, the world was in a rare moment of agreement.

But Cheney and the rest of his criminal minions f**ked that. They spooked Putin. They stoked the sectarian, centuries-long battles within Islam. They caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of non-combatants. They created enmities that will last for lifetimes.

Libby was part of this neoconservative con job. Whether he "outed" Plame is an insignificant factoid. Yeah, Armitage did it, he says, and Miller had a come to Jesus moment, she said. They're both liars. Miller should be in prison too, along with all the journalists who failed to do their jobs, who failed to uncover the lies being used to justify an invasion of Iraq.

So, Libby, one of the team of PNAC liars, was pardoned by Trump. Pardoning Libby was a big FU to Mueller and everyone else who awaits Mueller's findings. The pardon was red meat for Trump's followers, who already know Mueller will find nothing of any importance with his "witch hunt."

And make no mistake. Donald J. Trump is tearing this nation apart, rather, he's assisting our enemies in doing so.

You want to jail journalists?


That is absolutely terrifying

Lying that purely at the feet of trump is ridiculously one sided and extremely disingenuous IMO.

The radical left has been nonstop on attack ever since the day the american people elected him. Trumpertantrums.
