Isn't this just the icing on the cake for these two? I. Lewis Libby has not had his day in court yet, and these Democrats want Karl Rove to resign, along with the Vice-President AND they want the President to promise not to pardon him. Do you think there is more a political agenda here than one of national security? By their actions thus far, Libby and the whole Bush administration are guilty of everything they can dream up.
Faaaageet about it, due process that is. Besides all that, Libby wasn't indicted for outing anybody. He was, like Slick Willie, accused of lying under oath and to investigators. After Bill Clinton had his day in court, he was found guilty. Then on his last day in office he pardoned the biggest tax fraud criminal in US history, Marc Rich. The difference here is, the guy has not been covicted on any of the charges. The trial has not yet started .
Why else would they be ignoring the fact that the infamous 9/11 Commission's report SAID that there was no evidence that the data was manipulated and neither were the people manipulated or pressured into making certain conclusions, which is what all this 'Bush lied us into war' crap is about. The mainstream media also seems to have deliberately forgotten the report.
Democrats Don't Want Libby to Be Pardoned (AP).
AP - The Senate's top Democrats challenged President Bush on Tuesday to rule out a pardon for I. Lewis Libby, a former top White House aide who faces trial on charges of obstruction of justice and perjury in the CIA leak case.
