A political dispute whose "crime" was solved a long time ago
The Libby prosecution: a personal grudge?
"Fitzgerald may be like some prosecutors of the past who, when unable to pursue a straight-line path to a prosecution, go for a more circuitous route to a conviction. Nailing Al Capone on tax evasion when his other criminality could not be successfully prosecuted, to name a case with Chicago history to it.
One might also note that Fitzgerald is reported to be married to his job. No wife and kids, and an utterly workaholic-like devotion to his job. The courtroom attracts lawyers with a competitive streak, and it strikes me as quite likely that a very big catch like Rich, offering the possibility of going after even bigger catches if ever in custody, must have been a very tough loss.
The Fitzgerald prosecution of Libby is so flawed that one must wonder why it was ever pursued." <more>
