Breaking on MSNBC
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...!
FR is freezing up on me...
For God's sake.
Between this and all the silly histrionics over Ann Coulter, I'm going to have to turn off the TV for a while.
"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.
Hope your reputation was worth it, Fitzgerald.
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.
This is an absolute travesty of justice...........
I will now hold the OJ jury in higher regard than those fools in D.C.
A kangaroo verdict from a kangaroo kourt.
Oue side never fights back they way they should...this is what we get.
What a shame...and a sham.
Me too, big time.
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.
If you do, you'll be able to FEEL your IQ go up. :)
Anyone know the jury makeup? I believe MSNBC said the foreperson was juror 12.
Bush needs to pardon Libby now! What a disgrace this is.
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?
