Great Big Libby Case Update, Part I...

Firedoglake is on the ball!

"I was impressed by the immediate command of documents that Fitz showed in the discussion with the court about the ex parte submission on pp. 16 through 18 of the Transcript. All in all, an intriguing read."
"It’s a long read, but well worth it for the rich detail."

Aw shucks, thanks for the review. I am glad you liked it Christy, and I am impressed that you were able to stay awake! ;)

Bush is the MAN and Cheney is a MAN among me. May Bush have a safe trip home in '09 when leaving DC for Civilian life.

Hey, grandmauk. Are you Grandma Nuk or are you the Grand Man from the UK? If you are a Grandma then you may want to see photos of my grandkids. I'm teaching them to be good little Conservatives.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening folks,

Happy Monday!

I see that I missed a lot yesterday. Fitz, you had 110 comments on of your postings??? Interesting battle of comments between Dr. Evil and Anonymous.

That was a great article and observance by Firedoglake. Libby and his lawyers have a hard climb to battle in this case. As I mention before, he has no case. And the little soldier trying to discredit your position as Special Prosecutor because you weren't supervised by the Attorney General (as Libby's lawyers said) makes you wonder on why Gonzo is not questioned for his supervision in this case and why Gonzo withheld those emails. Unless, Gonzo realizes that you are close to the truth than what Gonzo thought in the beginning?

Here is more in the news:

From Thinkprogress.org:

More in Ohio:

:ETHICS -- 'COINGATE' REACHES THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION: Ohioan Thomas Noe gained notoriety in his home state last year for his role in the "Coingate" scandal, charged on 53 counts, including money laundering, theft, forgery, and tampering with records. Noe oversaw Ohio's $50-million rare coin investment, eventually stealing more than $10 million from the fund. Noe raised more than $100,000 in 2003 for the Bush-Cheney campaign and was indicted separately in late 2005 for allegedly laundering $45,400 to the campaign. The Treasury Department's inspector general has now opened an investigation into Noe's "role as a member and chairman of the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee.."

The Gerbil is staying the course!

"BUDGET -- BUSH STAYS THE COURSE ON DEFICITS: During his weekly radio address on Saturday, President Bush again called on Congress to permanently extend his tax cuts. "The debate in Congress over taxes ultimately comes down to this," Bush said, "Who knows best how to use your money - the politicians in Washington or you?" Recent news reports show that Bush clearly does not know how to handle taxpayer money effectively. According to the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities, making Bush's tax cuts permanent and extending Alternative Minimum Tax relief would cost the Treasury $3.3 trillion over the next ten years (with interest included)."

Yes Bush is the Man alright. The man who with one term destroyed the greatest empire the world had ever seen.

Yes I hear it coming..."Clinton".

Great Caesar's ghost, CJT! You got that right! The world was our oyster until Bush went unchecked and became a cut tax and SPEND liberal conservative...I am learning to speak Chinese since it appears all roads lead to Bejing as the next great economic superpower. Maybe we can learn to be humble like our friends in the UK and France, spot of tea with your croissant, buddy boy?

Fitz I can't read the long stuff anymore but SPB gives the talking points and highlights so here it goes. Gonzo is to far in this case by holding back documents and lying to pull you off this case. I was thinking if the Libby attornies were right wouldn't that make Gonzo dumb as he is the Attorney General and these old guys aren't. If the Attorney General doesn't know the law well lets say we have big problems in the legal field of our government. Its a little late to go back and Gonzo is up to his neck in cover up for Bush/Cheney/the rest.

Anon if you assume that I mean we should take the recent policies of GB and France then you are assuming wrong about me.

You may consider how we have spread ourselves across the board too thin worldwide just as the previous empires did.

I've lately come into some very lucrative business dealings with China and I suggest you learn to spell their capitol city correctly before you venture further.

Jackie...I believe Gonzales was another crony appointment (good luck with that). He probably served him well in Texas, but certainly, like Ms. Meirs, was not up to the promotion. Smart people do make some mistakes, but not smart enough people make more
mistakes. A mistake can certainly be lack of proper enlightenment on a subject or it could be intentionally ignoring the law to protect someone. I hear that there are going to be some new folks at the WH. Actually, I should say new appointments and "retirements". We all know it'll just be more the same.

I'm glad to hear that Peaches is doing ok. I think about her service
every time I get angry with the idiots that got us into this mess. Hope it's sunny in CA. It's raining here.

Jackie,

Gonzo is an intelligent man. Yes, the way the little soldier's attorneys are making appear that there was lack of supervision on Gonzo's part in this case since they challenging Fitz's job. When Fitz's was appointed Special Counsel in this case, I think that WH underestimated Fitzgerald's ability to investigate this case. You notice that there no interference in this case by the WH in the beginning. But when Fitz indicted Libby and said that this is still an ongoing investigation, I think the WH realized that they are dealing with an intelligent attorney. With the spotlight and recognition from the public and his fellow attorneys, Fitzgerald just became a threat and thorn to WH to be reckon with. Fitzgerald is too relentless to find out the truth and bring the evildoers down in this case. That is why you heard Cheney say that he can declassify information and Gonzo withholding the email. All of these tactics by Cheney, Gonzo, and the Bush Administration are simply a way to discredit Fitzgerald and remove him from this case. Fitzgerald is much closer to the truth. When the public finally knows the truth about what this case was really about, the public will be pat Fitzgerald on the back and yet be devastated and angry at the Bush Administration.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A divided Supreme Court on Monday rejected an appeal from a man held until recently as an enemy combatant without traditional legal rights, in effect sidestepping a challenge to Bush administration wartime detention powers.

sidestepped this one, but there's another in the wings that I'll bet gets heard.

Jackie, Gonzo doesn't have any experience. He's a dropout lawyer. What the fuck does he know about the law or about the subsequent powers granted therein?

Thank goodness Fitzgerald already has all the paperwork and legal filings, he's three heads above Gonzo!!!! Little solider is desperate to distract from his crimes!

:-D

Anon at 4:57 pm,

To add more credibility to your statement about Gonzo. Here is excerpt of an article about Gonzo and his attorney techniques with then Gov. Gerbil:

Loyal to a Fault?

"One set of questions grows out of Gonzales' work for then-Gov. Bush as his lawyer in the Texas Statehouse, where critics allege his work on death penalty cases fell far short of what a professional attorney in that position should have provided the governor. The second set of questions arises from the decision adopted by the White House, apparently on advice from Gonzales and other administration lawyers, to set aside the Geneva Conventions and other laws as part of the global war on terrorism. His conduct in both situations raises significant questions about Gonzales' lawyering skills and his apparent willingness to sacrifice the rule of law for the policy positions of his client, George W. Bush."

And who is the person who wrote this article?: Phillip Carter, a former Army officer who writes on legal and military affairs from Los Angeles and practices international law.

Gonzo is a real lawyers lawyer, he lives to lie and he lies to live.

Have we ever gotten anyone with such little integrity? It must be a wonder for some of these guys to wake up, knowing all they are going to do the whole day is lie and steal!

Who could stand that life?

Integrity is not Gonzo's middle name. Gonzo would steal the gold tooth out of someone's mouth to lie and steal. Speaking of the little soldier, he posted on his site an article about Armitage. Armitage is one of the people who will testify in the case. Interesting new job for Armitage:

CIA leak figure Armitage joins ConocoPhillips board

Reuters

"Oil major ConocoPhillips said on Friday that former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, a likely witness in the CIA leak case, has joined its board. "

Joining a major oil company, ConocoPhillips?
