Re: Libby Trial-Armitage on Woodward tapes, not Libby
Cheney won't testify.
The Libby Defense team figures he won't have to afterall.
The witnesses they've called have done enough damage
to the Fitzgerald case so far.
Even Huffington gang has been disappointed with how weak
the Fitzgerald case was - so far. He could easily come up
with a big rebuttal.
So far, Russert and Judith Miller and the NY Times Editor,
Woodward, and the other Pulitzer Prize winning writers have
contradicted each other, backed up Libby, or given us
.....'don't recall', 'no, Libby didn't say that', 'no, Fleischer
said that, not Libby', 'Armitage said it', 'Russert said this',
'Andrea Mitchell said this'....
Amazingly, if all these people were being held to the same
standard Libby is being held, about 12 more folks would be
on trial for perjury and obstruction of justice, and forgetting
when they said blue instead of red 4 years ago.
Personally, I think they have created a lot of doubt.
However, it seems risky not to call Cheney, or keep hammering
away at the Fitzgerald case.
They're hoping for a hung jury I guess.
With a D.C. jury pool of 99% Democrats, that's not a good
Libby, in my best guess, will be found guilty of at least one
count. He'll appeal. Probably win there with a judge only looking
at the information. But, a D.C. jury isn't going to lean his way
no matter how bad the Fitzgerald case has been so far.
