Can you say JURY SHOPPING???

Following are the individual charges and their corresponding verdicts:

* Obstruction of Justice: GUILTY
* False statements to FBI investigators (about Russert conversation): GUILTY
* False statement to FBI investigators (about Cooper conversation): NOT GUILTY
* Perjury to the Grand Jury (about Tim Russert conversation): GUILTY
* Perjury to the Grand Jury (about the Matt Cooper conversation): GUILTY

Wild Thing's comment......

A kangaroo verdict from a kangaroo' kourt'. Guilty of obstructing justice when there was NO crime! Justice in America is dead. The liberal courts killed it a long, long time ago.

Question to jurors:
What is your political affiliation?

How much you want to bet each member of the jury is an ACTIVIST in the DNC...follow the money. Now they will go after Cheney hard now. Watch.

It never ceases to amaze me how moonbats can accuse the CIA of all kinds of nefarious conspiracies over the years, and yet in this case they believe infallibly in what they consider to be the CIA's assertion in this complaint that Plame was covert.

Its okay for Sandy Burglar to STEAL documents, because William Jefferson Clinton told him to, and he gets a slap on the wrists. The media even ignores the whole story about Berger. Natch that is what they always do with their pals on the left.

Moments after the guilty verdict handed to I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby was made public Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., called on President Bush to promise not to let Libby off the hook with a presidential pardon.

"I welcome the jury's verdict. It's about time someone in the Bush Administration has been held accountable for the campaign to manipulate intelligence and discredit war critics," said Reid in a press statement. "Lewis Libby has been convicted of perjury, but his trial revealed deeper truths about Vice President Cheney’s role in this sordid affair. Now President Bush must pledge not to...

Etc...liberal BS...

Pelosi: Libby Guilty Verdicts Not Solely About Acts of One Individual Washington, D.C. –Speaker Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today on the guilty verdicts in the CIA leak trial of former White House aide Lewis Libby:

“Today's guilty verdicts are not solely about the acts of one individual.

“This trial provided a troubling picture of the inner workings of the Bush Administration. The testimony unmistakably revealed – at the highest levels of the Bush Administration – a callous disregard in handling sensitive national security information and a disposition to smear critics of the war in Iraq.”

Cough cough spit spit!

WASHINGTON DC – Senator John Kerry (D-Mass.) today offered the following statement on the CIA Leak case, which reached a verdict in Washington today.

“This verdict brings accountability at last for official deception and the politics of smear and fear,” Kerry said. “This trial revealed a no-holds barred White House attack machine aimed at anyone who stood in the way of their march to war with Iraq. It is time for President Bush to live up to his own promises and hold accountable anyone else who participated in this smear. It is also well past time for Vice President Cheney, who according to the testimony was protected by Scooter Libby’s lies, to finally acknowledge his role in this sordid episode.

“I also want to thank the jury and the prosecutor for their hard work in this case.”

And sicko hate filled Chris Mathews he was

" DEMANDING a reply from Cheney, saying "this isn't just like a hunting accident where he can walk away for two days."

Good grief!

LIBERALS SUCK. Republicans better come out and say something good about Libby. I'm so sick of liberals getting away with stealing, lying and putting down our soldiers and country. This case should never have seen the inside of a courtroom. The witnesses were universally pathetic. The judge was overly restrictive in the testimony he allowed on behalf of the defense. This whole case was political from the beginning to end.

It seems to me the libs are having dreams of impeaching President Bush....if that should happen, what are we, as Republicans, going to do? Sit back and try not to hurt anyone's feelings and be very PC or are we going to grow a spine and DEMAND that our Reps. and Senators act like they have some balls? And Pelosi is waiting in the wings. I don't see Bush giving Libby a pardon either, Bush needs Congress rignt now with this war on Islam. But in my heart I think Bush should pardon Libby, Libby didn't do anything.

An innocent man is going to jail and only President Bush can stop it. And where the heck are the leaders in the GOP? Hiding??

This whole thing will probably go on even after Bush is out of office, if they don't push on impeaching him first. I think all along IMO this was a pre-emptive strike to take out Cheney. The left hates him and fears him above all possible candidates and wants to make sure he is out of the way.

Finally, a show trial worthy of the Soviet Union from the Democrats. Matthews, particularly, has lost his mind. He proves that man-love for Bill Clinton and John McCain spreads like hives, and ends up effecting the brain.

The reason the Liberals get away with it is because the Republicans don't have the Kahunas to stand up to them. The Clinton Administration did what they pleased and thumbed their noses at Republicans. Where Republicans screwed up is that instead of keeping focused on Clinton's illegal activities (Whitewater) they got sidetracked on his sexual escapades.

One thing I'll give the Democrats is that they've got the balls to shove their middle finger in your face and tell you to kiss off. How I wish some Republican leaders had that nerve.

Rhod, AMEN it sure does. Your right about it effecting his brain. Like some kind of worm eating away at the grey matter. grrrrrrrrr I can't stand these people.

Bob, I agree 100%. I pray, I wish, I dream of our side havin leaders that stand up to these people. But like you said, they didn't during the Clinton regime and it broke my heart. I worked so hard to tell them how I felt too, emails, snail mail, phone calls and Fax's and only two men responded in how they knew how I felt..... Jessie Helms and Fred Thompson. And both of them not only answered my email personally but also sent me a hand written letter with some personal experiences included in their writings. I was amazed they would answer me personally like that and I saved those letters. I know it meant a lot for them to write me back like that.

OJ goes free, Sandy Berger is overlooked and Border Patrolmen get 10 and 11 years. As Rhod stated, show trials typical of a Socialist state. More coming folks, brace yourselves. And BobF, the Republicans really don't have more than a small handful of people in office that have the nerve or cajones to do anything tough. Maybe?? in '08??

WT - it is so nice for you to have those letters to treasure. My father happened to be the doctor that did FAA physicals for Anwar Sadat's personal pilot. My father and Anwar Sadat exchanged letters expressing the ineptness and danger of then Pres. Jimmy Carter. Very prophetic thoughts from two worldly and admirable men. I still have one of Sadat"s letters he wrote my Dad.

Stalinist show trials and purges??? How far are we from Hillary's gulag? The democrats are using the judiciary to destroy us and our freedoms. Just look at the House Judiciary, utterly disgusting, it's chairman and it's members, I want to puke. The Libby trial and the Duke case are nothing more than trumped up witch hunts led by democrats with an agenda. We're no better than the crazies under the inquisition nor those closed minds at the Salem witch trials. Right now their target is Consevatives and Republicans, once they get total control, Chris Matthews head will roll in the basket too because his free speech will also be cut off.

Tom thank you so much for sharing about that. I was so shocked when they killed Anwar Sadat. I will always remember just sitting there starring at the TV and not believing what I had just seen happen.

That is wonderful about your Dad, I am so glad you have one of the letters.

Jack your right, the idiots on the left don't realize that it is their very own that want to take their freedoms away. It is scary and sickening all in one emotion.
