BTW, Do I Have Any Polyps..?

I often suspect some filings in court cases go unread.

In this case, every document and filing, Libby's too, are examined from
every which way and angle!

Your right your filing are long and many but for us who's eyes sometimes close at will we need the bottom line. Thanks to SPB we get that bottom line. For some its just get them, nail them I know it has to go through the canels but it doen't make it easier. We will wait as you asked but its still hard.

This is simply a cat and mouse game in which the little soldier is playing against Fitz: lawyer against lawyer! The Gerbil Administration, press, and the Faux news and negative websites on the internet think that they can give a negative light into Fitzgerald's case with Fitz's corrections to his filings to try to sway the public that Fitzgerald is making mistakes in the leak case as well as Libby's case and that the case should be dismissed. Many of the everyday folks are not legal literates. As Jackie said, they all want the bottom line! The bottom line is this folks:

1.Libby is charged with obstruction of justice and lying to the investigators. The little soldier is just throwing a wrench in this case to claim that he wasn't a participant in a conspiracy nor leak the CIA's name. Libby is not charging with anything that he is claiming. Read between the lines of this case vs watch what your local media is reporting.

2. There is mounting of evidence piling of a WH conspiracy with major players in the Bush Administration. It doesn't matter who did what and why. The bottom line is all or some of the major players and much players affiliated with the Administration are directly and/or indirectly involved in the CIA case and the bogus intelligence report of WMD as well as other major cases such as Enron, removing of Saddam, DeLay/Abramoff case, etc. The case is alot bigger than you think! We all get the answers from Fitz.

3. Obstruction of justice, lying to investigator, and possible impeachment offenses against the President. In no shape or form, this President was directly or indirectly involved in discrediting Mr. Wilson and sabatoging the intelligence for a personal and hidden agenda. He may have not attending those secret meetings. But, best believe he was full abreasted to the status of the strategy to discredit Wilson.

Folks, do your homework and connect the dots! That's my 2 cents!

Thanks Biloxi,

but I'm afraid as long as we have you there's no need for us to do any homework.

You're breaking it down nice and easy for the legal illiterates ;-) Looking forward to your next article!

So Libby is trying to show he wasn't part of a conspiracy even though he isn't charged with it! But maybe he knows what will happen next!

Bush and Co going down and he's trying to do some advanced damage control because he's got lots of charges on his back already?

Looks like Judge Walton is getting a huge vein in his forehead from this case:

In Plame Leak Case, Judge Decries Leaks

Judge Reggie Walton, who's overseeing the Scooter Libby investigation, has warned the lawyers in the case that he might issue an order to stop them from leaking information to the press, adding that he will not "tolerate this case being tried in the media."
"Despite the Court's prior admonition," Judge Walton writes, "it appears that on several occasions information has been disseminated to the press by counsel, which has included not only public statements, but also the dissemination of material that had not been filed on the public docket."
Both sides have until April 21st to explain their role in the leaks

And here is Judge Walton's ruling:

Biloxi,

Speaking of Little Soldier, Little Soldier has a whole lot of friends now to join him!!!!

Looks like the Jack Abramoff neocons really ruined out whole country!

http://www.campaignmoney.org/campaigns/main/clean-up-congress

Its very dissapointing to see this amount of corruption with the talmud neocons, it just amazes me that they never learned any manners.

To me this means, Prosecutor Biloxi, that all the corrupt republicans and democrats need to receive the big boot.

Booted right out of office and then a Grand Jury indict the corrupt judge who covered up the crime.

I can't believe we have let these crazies deteriate our system like that, unbelievable!

The american people are outraged. No more corrupt Bob Ney, Steny Hoyer or anybody- they all go to go!

Which reminds me of this great article from Rolling Stone!

"All along, Abramoff was buying journalists, creating tax-exempt organizations to fund campaign activities and using charities to fund foreign conflicts. He spent the past twenty years doing business with everyone from James Dobson to the Gambino family, from Ralph Reed to Grover Norquist to Karl Rove to White House procurements chief David Safavian. He is even lurking in the background of the 2004 Ohio voting-irregularities scandal, having worked with the Diebold voting-machine company to defeat requirements for a paper trail in elections.

He is a living museum of corruption, and in a way it is altogether too bad that he is about to disappear from public scrutiny. In a hilariously tardy attempt to attend to his moral self-image, lately he has been repackaging himself as a fallen prophet, a humbled super-Jew who was guilty only of going too far to serve God. He was the "softest touch in town," he has said, a sucker for causes who "incorrectly didn't follow the mitzvah of giving away at most twenty percent." Then he shows up a few weeks before sentencing with his cock wedged in the mouth of an adoring Vanity Fair reporter, claiming with a straight face that his problems came from trying to "save the world."

There is no evidence yet that anyone is going to call him on any of this bullshit, and we can see where all of this is going. He'll go away now for his Martha Stewart fitness tour, and a few years from now he'll slide straight into his own prime-time family show for cable's inevitable Orthodox Channel and a $14 million deal from HarperCollins for his 290-page illustrated manual of marriage and intimacy for devout Jewish couples.

No other outcome is really possible, given the logic of the American celebrity world. What is unknown, as yet, is whether America will learn any lessons from the here-and-now of the Jack Abramoff story. For that to happen, we would all have to take a good, hard look at the remarkable life story he is now temporarily leaving us to consider.

Abramoff is a man defined by his connections. As an individual -- as a lone dot on a schematic diagram, an intersection of crossed strands in a web -- Jack Abramoff is a nobody, just another pompous Washington greedhead distinguished only by the world's silliest Boris Badenov fedora ("That was between me and God," Abramoff now says of the infamous hat). But let him loose in society, and magic happens. Jack Abramoff's instinctive political talent was for first locating and then inveigling himself into the disreputable backroom deal of the hour. He was a walking cut corner, a thumb on the scale of American history."
http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/story/9519825/meet_mr_republican_jack_abramoff?rnd=1144936431099&has-player=true&version=6.0.12.1040

Abramoff is a guy who takes after the little soldier in total corruption. They are probably planning strategy meetings for creating another ENRON after prison!

And they should not even dignify him as a Jew, this talmud carrying super zionist nutjob is the kind of man who has wrecked america.

He needs to get at least 20 years, I sure hope Fitz can see them impose a really good sentence!

;)

These neocon fanatics have been screwing up this country so bad we might as well live in Israel!

"One of the ugliest developments in American culture since Abramoff's obscure Cold Warrior days in the Eighties has been the raging but highly temporary success of various "smart guys" who upon closer examination aren't all that smart. There was BALCO steroid scum Victor Conte ("The smartest son of a bitch I ever met in my life," said one Olympian client), Enron's "smartest guys in the room" Jeff Skilling and Ken Lay, and, finally, "ingenious dealmaker" Jack Abramoff. Somewhere along the line, in the years since the Cold War, Americans as a whole became such craven, bum-licking, self-absorbed fat cats that they were willing to listen to these fifth-rate prophets who pretended that the idea that rules could be broken was some kind of earth-shattering revelation -- as though they had fucking invented fraud and cheating. But to a man, they all turned out to be dumb, incompetent fuckups, destined to bring us all down with them -- not even good at being criminals.

* * * *

All of Abramoff's late-career capers -- the inner-city youth charity that actually bought sniper scopes for Israeli settlers, the academic think tank that turned out to be a lifeguard in a shack on Rehoboth Beach, the "check's in the mail" fleecing of his own tailor out of a bill for suits -- they all exude the same infuriating "Check out the brains on us!" vibe.

Take the infamous Naftasib scheme of 1997-98. The short version of this story is that Abramoff and Tom DeLay met with a bunch of shady Russian oil executives in 1997; the Russians then sent $1 million to a British law firm called James and Sarch; James and Sarch then sent a million to the pompously named nonprofit "U.S. Family Network," which in turn sent money to numerous destinations. It went to a lobbyist agency called the Alexander Strategy Group that was run by DeLay's ex-chief of staff, Edwin Buckham; the agency would subsequently hire DeLay's wife at a salary of $3,200 a month. It went toward the purchase of a luxury D.C. town house that DeLay would use to raise money. And it went toward the purchase of a luxury box at FedExField, which Abramoff used to watch the Redskins. If you follow the loop all the way around, the quid pro quo probably involved DeLay's 1998 decision to support an IMF loan to Russia, whose economy collapsed that year and would rely on an IMF bailout to survive. A Maryland pastor named Christopher Geeslin, who briefly served as the U.S. Family Network's president, would later say that Buckham told him that the $1 million from the Russians was intended to influence DeLay's decision regarding funding for the IMF. DeLay ended up voting to replenish IMF funds in September of that year, right at the time of the bailout.

Is this smart? Sure, if you're fucking ten years old. If your idea of smart is turning an IMF loan into Redskins tickets, then, yeah, this is smart. But another way to look at it is that these assholes got themselves Redskins tickets by giving $18 billion to one of the most corrupt governments on Earth. I'd call that buying at a premium.

That's the most striking characteristic of Abramoff and his crew of ex-student leaders; nearly thirty years out of college, no longer young at all, the whole bunch of them are still Dean Wormer's sneaky little shits, high-fiving one another for executing the brilliant theft and pre-dawn public hanging of the rival college's stuffed-bear mascot. That whole adolescent vibe permeates the confiscated Abramoff e-mails, the best example of which being this exchange between Jack and his "evil elf" aide Michael Scanlon regarding their lobbying fees for the Coushatta Indian tribe:

Scanlon: Coushatta is an absolute cake walk. Your cut on the project as proposed is at least 800k.

Abramoff: How can I say this strongly enough: YOU IZ DA MAN

Again, these assholes affirm every stereotype about campus conservatives. They don't spend enough time being kids when they're supposed to, so they do it when they're balding, middle-aged men with handles and back hair -- using Washington and Congress as their own personal sandbox.

They figured out how to beat everything. Everything about the Abramoff story suggests that at some point, he and his buddies Norquist, Reed and DeLay took a long, hard look at the American system, war-gamed it and came up with a master plan to strike hard at its weakest points. In the end, almost all of the Abramoff scams revolved around the vulnerability of the national legislature to outside manipulation. Once Abramoff and his cabal figured out how to beat Congress, everything else fell into place.

Case in point: Abramoff's remarkable success in defeating H.R. 521, a 2001 House bill that would place the Guam Superior Court under the control of a federally controlled Supreme Court. Led by Judge Alberto Lamorena, Guam Superior Court justices hired the lobbyist to defeat the bill, which would have unseated them as the chief judicial authorities of the island. It says something for Abramoff's ability to bring out the worst in people that he managed to get a group of sitting judges to pay him $324,000 in public funds in $9,000 installments so as to avoid detection.

Despite the $324,000 fee, Abramoff could not prevent the House Resources committee from unanimously recommending H.R. 521 for passage. Would the superlobbyist finally fail? No, of course not. Given what we know about Abramoff's tactics, we'd be naive not to conclude that he could lean on DeLay and then-Whip Roy Blunt to stall the bill in the congressional machinery. On May 27th, 2002, just five days after the Resources committee made its recommendation, an Abramoff-linked PAC wrote two checks for $5,000 -- one to Blunt, one to DeLay. H.R. 521 never reached the floor.

The Guam incident certainly shows how easily the whole Congress was controlled by a small gang. The DeLay Republicans, along with Abramoff, were apparently the first to recognize the opportunities for corruption presented by the House leadership's dictatorial control over key committees, in particular the Rules committee. Now, a single call to a lone Tom DeLay could decide the fate of any piece of legislation, pushing it through to a vote or gumming it up in the works as needed. The other 430-odd congressmen were window dressing.

I asked Rep. Louise Slaughter if the Guam case, which showed that just two men could quash a bill, proved that Congress was especially vulnerable to manipulation by the likes of Abramoff.

"Absolutely," she said. "And the thing is, we have no idea how many incidents like that there were. What else didn't get to the floor? We have no idea. No way of knowing."

Even more ominously, Abramoff would eventually come under fire in Guam following the mysterious removal of Guam Attorney General Frederick Black, who had seen the fate of H.R. 521 and decided to investigate Abramoff's role in it.

"The thing that really worries me about Guam is the prosecutor who was plucked off the case," says Slaughter, a New York Democrat who has spearheaded her party's lobby-reform drive. "It makes you wonder what really went on there."

At the very least, Abramoff's relationship with White House procurements officer David Safavian shows that he made at least some inroads into the world of White House patronage. Abramoff took Safavian on one of his famous Scotland golfing junkets and reportedly was receiving help from Safavian in leasing government property. Safavian was working on the distribution of millions in federal aid to Katrina-affected regions when he was arrested, which raises all kinds of questions about what else might have been going on.

"There were so many contracts, from Katrina to Iraq -- God knows what really went on in there," says Slaughter.

Once Congress was conquered, Abramoff, Norquist, et al., apparently discovered a means for turning it into a pure engine for profit. The game they may have discovered worked like this: One lobbyist (Abramoff, say) represents one group of interests -- for example, the Malaysian government. Then, a lobbyist friend of Abramoff's (say, Norquist) represents an antagonist to Abramoff's client, in this case, let's say dissident leader Anwar Ibrahim. Ibrahim asks Norquist to press his case against the Malaysian state in Washington; Norquist complies and uses his contacts to raise a stink on the Hill. Abramoff's client, unnerved, turns to Abramoff to make the problem go away. Abramoff dutifully goes to the same friends Norquist applied to in the first place, and the problem does indeed go away. In the end, everyone is happy and both lobbyists have performed and gotten paid. Abramoff apparently pulled this kind of double-dealing scheme more than once, as he and Ralph Reed appear to have run a similar con on the Coushatta and Tigua Indian tribes, who were on opposite sides of a gaming dispute.

An idiot might call a scheme like this clever. But that's only true if you don't consider what really happened here: Dozens of people conspiring to reduce the U.S. Congress to the level of a Belarussian rubber stamp for the sake of . . . what? A few million dollars in lobbying fees? And not even a few million dollars apiece but a few million dollars split several ways. Shit, even Paris Hilton can make a million dollars in this country without blowing up 200 years of democracy. How smart can these guys be?

Everyone sold themselves on the cheap. They apparently got Rep. Bob Ney (R-Ohio), and many others in the House, to lie back and open their legs all the way for a few thousand dollars in campaign contributions. In the Third World, corrupt politicians at least get something for selling out the people -- boats, mansions, villas in the south of France. If you offered the lowest, most drunken ex-mobster in the Russian Duma $5,000, $10,000, $15,000 in soft money for his vote, he would laugh in your face; he might even be insulted enough to shoot you. But Jack Abramoff apparently got any number of congressmen to play ball for the same kind of money.

They paid journalists to change their opinions; as it turns out, the right to free speech is worth about $2,000 a column to America's journalists like Doug Bandow of Copley News Service. And now it comes out that Diebold, the notorious voting-machine company, paid some $275,000 to Abramoff's firm, Greenberg Traurig, with the apparent aim of keeping legislation requiring paper trails in the voting process from getting into the Help America Vote Act. Conveniently, Abramoff pal Bob Ney, one of the HAVA architects, blocked every attempt to put paper trails into law, even after the controversial electoral debacles of 2000 and 2004.

They targeted Congress, the courts, the integrity of elections, and the free press, and in every corner they found willing partners who could be had for a few bucks and a package of golf tees. That doesn't mean Jack Abramoff was so very smart. No, what that says is that America is no longer trying very hard. And when Jack Abramoff hears his sentence, ours will certainly be made plain soon after. Jack Abramoff was the Patient Zero of Washington corruption. He's the girl at school that everyone got a piece of, including two janitors in their forties. It strains all credulity to think that he's been talking to the Department of Justice for months and yet prosecutors still have to "encircle" a lone congressman, Bob Ney, as has been reported. If Ney is the big target the government made a deal with Abramoff for, we'll know we've been had again."

Libby's lawyers: Prosecutors withholding information

Thursday, April 13, 2006; Posted: 8:51 a.m. EDT (12:51 GMT)

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Attorneys for I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, the indicted former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, are accusing federal prosecutors of withholding information needed to provide their client with a thorough defense.

In documents filed Wednesday, Libby's attorneys said prosecutors can't "have it both ways" by claiming that issues in the perjury case pertain only to Libby while broadening the case by offering details about the disclosure of parts of the classified National Intelligence Estimate.

I read Christy Harden's analysis of
the new filing and a thought crossed my mind....is it possible
that all have NOT been indicted at
once so that if pardons are in the
equation, there will only be one at
a time, thereby exposing the administration to continued criticism? Just wondered. Christy
made the pardon point.....and a little light bulb went off. If all were indicted at once, and pardons were granted all at once, the whole thing would have to go away.

If I remember correctly, Nixon was never convicted of wrongdoing, but

be pardoned.

If the Gerbil is still in office and the little soldier is found guilty of obstruction if justice and Bush pardons him on that conviction, it will lead to impeachment hearings as Bush has major involvements in this case. It's like the crook pardons the associate that was convicted!

1. From WSJ:more of the CIA Leak case:

Libby Defense Seeks Data
To Spotlight Iraq
Intelligence Wrangling
By ANNE MARIE SQUEO
April 14, 2006


"WASHINGTON -- The showdown over evidence in the criminal case against former vice presidential chief of staff I. Lewis Libby presages a court battle that could highlight the faulty intelligence leading to the Iraq war and the infighting over it within the Bush administration.
In a 29-page court filing Wednesday night, Mr. Libby's defense team said it needs additional documents from government agencies other than the vice president's office, at least in part to impeach the testimony of witnesses from the State Department, Central Intelligence Agency and elsewhere.
"The defense intends to show the jury that the controversy over intelligence failures during the spring and summer of 2003 led certain officials within the White House, State Department and the CIA to point fingers at each other," said the filing. "This bureaucratic infighting provides necessary context for the testimony of witnesses from different government agencies."

The trial is expected to put a host of current and former administration officials on the stand to testify, including former CIA Director George Tenet. Mr. Tenet was at odds with the vice president's office over the handling of pre-war intelligence, and Mr. Libby's lawyers suggested his involvement in the case may have been motivated by bias."

Second Entry:

More on the Enron Trial from WSJ:

"HOUSTON — Jeff Skilling closed his four-day direct testimony today explaining once again why he’s taking a stand and fighting these charges. In his very final salvo this afternoon he took aim not at the government, but at the journalists who have written about the energy giant. Were he not to defend himself, he said, “the books that will get written will be wrong like the books that have been written so far.”
While the Law Blog swooped into Houston during the trial’s eleventh week, there are reporters here who have lived with Enron for more than a half-decade, with several of them becoming characters in the courtroom drama.
During Monday’s testimony, Skilling placed blame for Enron’s downfall squarely at the feet of The Wall Street Journal. Specifically, he testified that three consecutive articles written in 2001 contributed to investor panic that led to Enron’s downfall. “The Wall Street Journal was totally out of line,” Mr. Skilling testified. “I had never seen an article that was that one-sided.” John Emshwiller, one of the co-authors of those articles, is in the courtroom covering the trial every day. Emshwiller and Rebecca Smith, his co-author on those Oct. 2001 stories, later wrote the 2003 book “24 Days,” recounting Enron’s collapse.
Then there’s Bethany McLean, a Fortune writer who was among the first reporters to question Enron’s financials. Skilling has cited her story several times during his week-long testimony, criticizing it for being planted by short-sellers and for mischaracterizing Enron as a “trading company” along the lines of Goldman Sachs. McLean later teamed with Fortune’s Peter Elkind to write the book, “The Smartest Guys in the Room,” edited by then-Fortune editor Joseph Nocera, now of The New York Times. All three are in attendance.
In March, Skilling’s lawyer Dan Petrocelli went so far as to write a letter to Fortune’s editors, criticizing them for letting Elkind and McLean cover the trial. Fortune responded with an editor’s note defending Elkind and McLean’s reputation and work."

The next thing I am going to hear Skilling say is that he blames the one-armed man or it was his twin brother, Buck, who skimmed the money from Enron!

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening folks!

Happy Friday or Good Friday!

In the news:

This story makes me cringed because gas prices are very high these days. In some states, it is 3.00 for umleaded gas. Now, here you have a Lee Raymond of Exxon that retires fron Exxon with one hell of package while people cannot afford to put gas in their cars!


"Exxon is giving Lee Raymond one of the most generous retirement packages in history, nearly $400 million, including pension, stock options and other perks, such as a $1 million consulting deal, two years of home security, personal security, a car and driver, and use of a corporate jet for professional purposes."

http://www.abcnews.go.com/GMA/story?id=1841989

400 million folks! That is enough money to gas anyone's cars for dear life yet this joker walks away with that type of retirement package???? Then he assured the public that “we’re all in this together." Please....

With the amount of money that Raymond is getting for retirement, he can buy his own troops and pay their salaries. Also, his money can used to balance the unbalanced deficit debt that we have in the United States. I have never heard of a retirement package like that. That should be investigated! Good eggs for Easter? For the Gerbil and company, they deserve rotten eggs. It has been quiet on the blog. Hopefully, Fitz will have a new posting today!

Subway:

Very good and powerful article that you wrote. Thanks for sharing.

S-Q,

I thought everyone would get a kick from the video with agent Bush. I was laughing hard late last night. I said to myself: the whole entire Gerbil Administration with a brain size of a BB could never on the face of earth would fit to be special agent or an agent! A moron or making a license plates while in prison maybe?

All,

Here is a release of Cheney's 2005 tax return. For a crook, Cheney is a smart businessman:

THE WHITE HOUSE
Office of the Vice President
For Immediate Release April 14, 2006
VICE PRESIDENT CHENEY AND MRS. CHENEY
RELEASE 2005 INCOME TAX RETURN
Vice President and Mrs. Cheney released their 2005 federal income tax return today. The return shows that the Cheneys owe federal taxes for 2005 of $529,636 on taxable income of $1,961,157. The Cheneys> '> adjusted gross income in 2005 was $8,819,006 which was largely the result of the exercise by an independent gift administrator of stock options that had been irrevocably set aside in 2001 for charity.

And here is the Gerbil's 2005 tax return. Unlike Cheney, Bush is not financially intelligence in that area:
