This country and judicial system is becoming more and more of a joke every day.

What a travesty. Think of all the scum bags who are let go.

Rush is bringing up Martha Stewart, says the jurors convicted her of something other than what she was charged with and waged class envy.

Rush has always had a way different opinion than me for the Martha Stewart trial. Personally I think she got what she deserved.

Note to self, stay the HELL out of Washington DC...!

"Bullsh*t! He was railroaded!"

The necessary appeal will be in the hands of a judge by the end of day, methinks.

Personally, I'm not surprised, but it still saddens me immensely. Convicted of doing something the prosecution has already said somebody else did, just shameful.

The convictions will be overturned. But Fitz and the jury will have gotten what they wanted in the meantime.

Hope your reputation was worth it, Fitzgerald.

CNN

media is hammering the seriousness of the verdict, less likely to be successful in appeals due to 4 of 5 charges verdict.. appeals court would likely pass on reversing based on that.

Obstruction of justice alone equals 10 years of hard time. Each additional count = five years. Pundits questioning if Wells made a mistake not putting Libby on the stand, especially since the Judge questionned his decision. Victoria Toesing up next on foxnews.

i've come to the realization with all libs, that the ends justifies the means, the leaks don't matter when it's a lib doing it, their end is "noble" and "right"

doesn't matter if their leaks harm the military and their safety, a supposed outing of a "non-covert" whom all her neighbors and friends knew was an analyst at the CIA is more important

Libby has been FITZFONGed with the aid of a dim-witted judge and a biased DC jury. I don't want to hear the usual crap about how "the system worked" -- this is the type of case that makes one despair over our legal system.

Has the jury even read the verdict yet? The wire services are giving different results. Did the jury leak the verdict on what has been billed as a case about leaking?

Fitzy got the jury he wanted in DC.

He can fold the tents for this circus now and become a MSM legal pundit until a 'rat President annoits him to a high Dept. of Justice position.

Libby now knows the rewards of a career in public service.

The reason for the Not Guilty on the Matt Cooper charge is because that's the one that is DIRECTLY connected to Hillary. Cooper's wife is Mandy Grunwald, Hillary's best friend, her media manager and Bubba's former campaign manager. Mandy's father was the first NEWS EDITOR to say that Nixon should resign.

Why would you say that? A look at my posting history will reveal that I've had very little to say about this case from the start.

I've predicted that Libby won't spend a day in jail. The only question is whether he has to get a presidential pardon, or if his conviction will be overturned on appeal (which became more likely by the day and probably became a near-certainty after Fitzgerald's closing arguments).

"Guilty of obstructing justice when there was NO crime."

Martha Stewart was found guilty of obstructing justice when there was no crime, also.

So many people in DC knew that Plame was an "analyst" that she might as well have had her own web site proclaiming it.

I wonder how long it will be before she poses in Playboy or Penthouse?

I'm not surprised. I expect this from a Bush-hating D.C jury. Scooter Libby was convicted for an offense that had NOTHING to do with outing Valerie Plame. That didn't matter; Fitzfong got his conviction and the Drive Bys/MSM will trumpet this as a strike against Bush/Cheney.

The next two years will begin the persecution of Conservatives and the focus on the vast "Right Wing" corruption, by the Media.

This is setting up the Democrat plan to take the White House. WE are in BIG trouble!

I hope the jury cites Fitz's closing arguments about the "outing" of the agent as being the basis for the seriousness of the crimes; that would be good news from an appeal point of view. It could show the jury was prejudiced by disallowed testimony.
