I think you are the only one not talking to the media about the case.

Does this mean you have to cancel dinner with Melanie?

I think Judge Reggie is being a little unfair to Melanie... everyone else has tried the case in the press.

Walton should have put a gag order on this case long time ago.. I like the way that he scolds Ms. Sloan when the Gerbil leaked out classified NIE information to the public on whim and Cheney can go on the chitlin circuit shows to give his 2 cents about his buddy, Irve.. If he is going to tell Ms. Sloan to muzzle it, then it should be for all involved in the criminal case as well as the pending civil case not to give predictions of Scooter's case...

That's why Smurf leaked and his boss told him to leak!

Good afternoon,

I heard about Judge Walton's telling Melanie Sloan to zip it. Well, if he is going to tell Melanie to zip it, then that goes for everyone else.. Certainly, Mr. Libby's case has already been tried in the public and the media from day one. And we haven't had the trial yet. The trial will be very interesting.. Good day all...

"Exactly, so smurfs lawyers shouldn't be crying "Argentina" now after their side kept on putting out pure lies in the media to exonerate the smurf.."

And notice that Walton didn't scold Irve's defense team.. But, this tells me that certain people and journalists who are in the backpocket of the Gerbil are scared to death of the Wilson's civil case. When the Wilsons announced their civil case, the media tried to squash their chances of winning. But, now that veep is testifying in Irve's trial and the civil case coincides with the criminal case, all of sudden, Wilson's civil case needs to be taken a close look at by the media especiallt Tweety... It was a joke back then. But, he who laugh last, laugh the loudest.. All I can about the naysayer media's spin on the Wilsons is be careful what you wish for and say...

NH Phone Jamming: Final Mystery Solved

The perps have been caught, restitution has been ordered. But one detail lingered, a loose thread, and unsolved mystery, and it bugged folks: just prior to the phone-jamming, two checks totalling $15,000 found their way to the New Hampshire Republican Party. The jamming, performed by a telemarketing firm, cost approximately $15,000. Who wrote the checks? Two Indian tribal clients of crooked super-lobbyist Jack Abramoff.

"Judge Walton likes to gag people like Sibel,"

Anon makes good point about the FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds:

She wanted Judge Walton removed from her case..

Edmonds' motion for recusal is partially based on Judge Walton’s financial disclosure statement for 2003, which is almost completely redacted save for the date of the filing and the judge's name. According to Edmonds, this redacted statement "appears to be in violation of the Ethics in Government Act." The Act requires judges and other high-level judicial branch officials to file annual financial disclosure reports as a check on potential conflicts of interest.

In March 2005, Edmonds filed in D.C. Federal Court a separate claim under the Federal Tort Claims Act, and the case was randomly assigned to Judge James Robertson. However, five days later, Edmonds’ claim was removed from Judge Robertson and reassigned to Judge Reggie Walton. This set of facts reveals apparent violations of local rules governing the assignment of cases.

As Anon said, Walton loves gag orders but what about in this case of Sibel Edmonds...

Oh oh.. Looks like no hand holding with the Saudis and the Gerbil:

Saudi Royals Snub Bush, Fund Opposition to US Troops


The Saudis are clear about their bottom line: If the United States isn't careful about withdrawing from Iraq, the Sunni kingdom will have no other choice but to arm Iraqi's Sunnis, especially if the Saudi's arch-rival, Iran, which has already destabilized the regional power equilibrium by launching a nuclear program, rushes into a military vacuum left by the Americans.

How hard can the White House push back on the Saudis? It's the Saudis who are now doing the pushing. Last week Saudi financiers showed their political power by forcing Tony Blair to peremptorily cancel his own government's investigation of a slush fund reportedly kicking back 32 percent to Saudi royals on their military purchases from Great Britain. The Saudis reportedly told Blair they'd never buy British weaponry again if their Swiss bank accounts were investigated by the Brits.

"The Saudis think a nasty civil war in Iraq could quickly sour into an even nastier regional war," Pike says, "so they're not in a real patient mood."

WASHINGTON: It will be a Cinderella moment for the band of researchers who study the hidden history of American government.

At midnight on Dec. 31, hundreds of millions of pages of secret documents will be instantly declassified, including many FBI cold war files on investigations of people suspected of being Communist sympathizers. After years of extensions sought by federal agencies behaving like college students facing a term paper, the end of 2006 means the government's first automatic declassification of records.

Secret documents 25 years old or older will lose their classified status without so much as the stroke of a pen, unless agencies have sought exemptions on the ground that the material remains secret.

Interesting thoughts from FDL about Cheney:


While Cheney may “be able to have a lawyer present,” his attorney won’t be able to do anything other than sit back and watch. No smirks, hand signals or head nods either.

As a non-party, Cheney has no right to an attorney and the only participating attorneys will be Libby’s or Fitz (and maybe a ? or two by the Judge). Libby’s attorneys likely won’t risk speaking (directly) w/Cheney pre-trial because any hint that they have and those discussions are subject to cross examination since no testimonial privilege is in place between Cheney and Libby’s attorneys.

Unlike in the grand jury room, at the Libby criminal trial the prosecuting attorney has another attorney representing the interests of the defendant, who will challenge what the prosecutor is doing. However, neither advocate has Cheney’s interest at stake. And in fact, Fitz may have an interest in making Cheney look good on some questions and Libby’s attorney may have incentives to make Cheney look bad on some issues.


Christy's comments:


You do not claw your way to the top of the power heap in Washington without stepping on a lot of toes along the way. Dick Cheney has been around this block a number of times — and knows the ropes altogether too well, some might say. Patrick Fitzgerald has stared down terrorists and mafia dons — and Dick Cheney is small time compared to what some of those folks are willing to do with their own, bare hands. This is going to be one battle worth watching, though.

Don't know about you guys, but I bought some extra popcorn…ringside seats, anyone?


Yup, I agree.. Money bags has been around the barn and back 12 million times and still on borrowed time in regards to his health.. Cheers, Christy...

Remember Grandmanuk, Cheney is testifying on Libby's perjury charges not on his other criminal crimes. I agree with everything that you said about him. But, Fitz has to have a strategy to undermine Cheney. Yes, he is a liar and everything that you said. But, Fitz and his team has to outfox the fox. Cheney is a smart business man and Fitz has to get into the mind of Cheney to break him. It won't be easy for Fitz because out of the three amigos Cheney is the strongest out of the three. The person that will make mince meat out of Cheney is the Wilsons' trial lawyer, Joseph Cotchett. Now, he will challenge Cheney in the upcoming civil case...

And Henry Waxman is a rebel with a cause to nail Cheney in his KBR-Halliburton investigation...

During the April 9 edition of Fox News Sunday, Kristol attacked special counsel Patrick J.

He also asserted that Fitzgerald's case "is crumbling" and criticized Fitzgerald for "refusing to close ... his investigation of [White House senior adviser] Karl Rove and other people," concluding that Fitzgerald is "out to discredit the administration."

MATTHEWS: Welcome back to HARDBALL.

Again, former Ambassador Joe Wilson is seeking to avoid testifying as a defense witness in the upcoming trial of former Dick Cheney aide Scooter Libby.

We‘re joined now by phone by Melanie Sloan, attorney for Ambassador Wilson.

Melanie, tell me why Joe Wilson and you do not wish him to testify in the Scooter Libby perjury trail.

MELANIE SLOAN, ATTORNEY FOR JOE WILSON: Well, for several reasons. Mr. Libby has been charged with obstruction of justice, perjury and making false statements. Mr. Wilson has no information whether or not Mr. Libby lied to the grand jury or lied to FBI agents. Neither does he have any information concerning Mr. Libby‘s defense, which seems to be that Mr. Libby doesn‘t remember exactly what he said to reporters because he was so busy on matters of national security.

Mr. Wilson has never met Mr. Libby and doesn‘t know anything about Mr. Libby‘s work habits or what he was working on in the White House. And the law requires defense witnesses—the defendants may call any witnesses, as long as they have relevant and material testimony. And we believe Mr. Wilson doesn‘t have relevant or material testimony.

Plus, we believe he‘s being called simply to harass him because there is a pending civil case.

MATTHEWS: What about—what do you mean, a pending civil case? Has he sued Scooter Libby?

SLOAN: Yes, Mr. Wilson has sued Scooter Libby.

MATTHEWS: And has he gotten standing in a court yet, or not?

SLOAN: Yes. We‘re right now in front of District Court of the District of Columbia and motions to dismiss have been filed. It‘s a case against Scooter Libby, Dick Cheney, Richard Armitage...

MATTHEWS: OK. So it‘s still a question of whether you‘re going to get standing or not.

SLOAN: No, there‘s definitely standing. It‘s just a question of whether or not—whether the case may get dismissed on certain legal grounds.

MATTHEWS: Let me ask you—let me suggest a question. A D.C. jury sitting in this case of Scooter Libby, if they were to learn that Joe Wilson had somehow put out the word that his wife was an undercover agent before Scooter Libby said anything to anyone, wouldn‘t that mitigate against his guilt?

SLOAN: No, because the issue isn‘t anymore what Mr. Libby may have said regarding Ms. Wilson. It‘s that he lied in court, that he lied to the grand jury, that he lied to the FBI. And that‘s what Mr. Libby‘s being charge with.

MATTHEWS: Do you think a jury would still find him guilty if it was clear that he was not the first to leak?

SLOAN: I think a jury could easily still find him guilty without being the first to leak because that‘s not what he‘s been charged with. He‘s not charge with leaking. He‘s charged with making false statements.

MATTHEWS: What harm—you‘re a defense attorney, right? You‘re defending Joe...

SLOAN: I used to be a prosecutor, in fact.

MATTHEWS: OK. But what harm could come to Joe Wilson if he were called to testify? What‘s the harm here that could be done to your client?

SLOAN: Well, we also don‘t believe that Mr. Libby should have the opportunity to basically get the testimony of Joe Wilson in advance of the discovery stage of Mr. Wilson‘s civil case against Mr. Libby.

MATTHEWS: Why?

SLOAN: We‘re concerned that they might be trying to use this opportunity to get information that they couldn‘t otherwise get for use in their civil case, in the defense of the civil case.

MATTHEWS: You mean, he might be grilled in preparation for this trial as a witness on whether—what he knows about Scooter Libby‘s behavior?

SLOAN: He might be grilled as to things that the defense thinks it might be able to use in the civil case that‘s going to be way down the road.

MATTHEWS: Do you believe Joe Wilson was harmed by Scooter Libby?

SLOAN: I absolutely believe that Joe Wilson was harmed by Scooter Libby.

MATTHEWS: How so?

SLOAN: I believe that Mr. Libby was engaged in a protracted effort in order to punish Mr. Wilson for having published an article, an op ed in the “New York Times” and Mr. Libby did this by publicizing information about Mr. Wilson‘s wife, namely that she was a CIA operative.

MATTHEWS: Do you believe Mr. Libby operated in concert with the vice president in this regard?

SLOAN: Yes, we do believe that.

MATTHEWS: Do you have evidence?

SLOAN: We‘ll be developing that evidence through discovery in the civil case down the road.

MATTHEWS: Why aren‘t you suing Cheney? Why are you suing the number two guy?

SLOAN: We sued Cheney. We sued Libby. We sued Karl Rove. And we sued Richard Armitage, all.

MATTHEWS: Really. And you believe that Dick Cheney went out to hurt your client?

SLOAN: Yes, we do.

MATTHEWS: How so?

SLOAN: We believe that Mr. Cheney was involved in a conspiracy with Mr. Libby and Mr. Rove in order to punish Joe Wilson for having written the op ed in the “New York Times” and then spoke publicly about what he learned about the yellow cake uranium in Niger, basically that Niger never sold yellow cake uranium to Iraq.

MATTHEWS: Do you believe that Scooter Libby and the vice president covered up the fact that there was no deal with Niger and allowed the president to continue to argue there was a nuclear threat from Saddam Hussein?

SLOAN: It does appear that way, but we don‘t know yet the truth of that matter. What we do know is that Mr. Libby and Mr.—and Vice President Cheney were involved in an effort to punish Joe and Valerie Wilson.

MATTHEWS: Well, best of luck out there. Melanie Sloan, an attorney for Joe Wilson.

SPB Speaking of wages, Ohio voted for the min wage to go up-republicans are already trying to water it down...

Was this a min wage worker?

Authorities arrested a man on Tuesday who, they said, was caught on camera throwing rocks at the Republican Headquarters building in Columbus.

Officials said windows at the headquarters on South 5th Street have been broken nearly a dozen times.

They also said staff members have nearly been pelted with thrown objects.

Republicans said they thought the vandalism would die down after the recent elections, but that wasn’t the case.

Shug was on PBS tonight trying to cheerlead for the gerbil whilst he is on the bottle. She reiterated the script that was written for Dubya, and tried to talk down to Margeret Warner like she was a student. Ya know...for her to lie seems a lot worse than Dubya lying, what with her being an ex provost of Stanford, not to mention owning an oil tanker. I believe that there is more responsability required of intelligent people, not that i'm letting Dubya off of the hook. He shouldn't have acted smart, and got himself into a position that has exposed him for the idiot he is...
