Quote of The Day...

"In a town where reputation and power is everything, Libby's entire legal team was diminished in a matter of minutes with this one, petty, groundless and unnecessary stunt." - Christy Hardin Smith

This is what happens when you have nothing to work with and your client is still lying. Wells our Attorney of the Year is looking like he has to give back his award. Libby could get 1 million lawyers and it wont change the fact that Libby is guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The only way out for Libby is a Bush pardon or a fake death like Kenny boy pulled.

I just had a chance to read Jason Leopold's posting on the opening day arguments. I don't think Libby and his lawyers believe they can get him off the hook for perjury and lying by these accusations against Rove, but I hope whatever they have against him will be allowed by the court. It's obviously a power struggle between Rove and Cheney gone amok. Maybe after Fitzgerald said that Libby would have to serve serious jail time whether he squealed or not plus indications that Bush would not give Libby a pardon has pushed him over the edge. Anything that comes out in court about Rove and Cheney has got to help the Wilsons in their civil case.

I totally agree with whoever said that Marcy Wheeler is a genius in the last thread. I don't have her on my list of blogs and haven't read her that much, but if there is a blog award for coverage of this case, she is the one who really deserves it.

Mr. and Mrs. Juice

When Vice-President Dick Cheney named Catherine Martin to replace Mary Matalin as his chief spokeswoman on Dec. 13 he made it official: Washington has a new power couple.

Cathie Martin, 34, is married to Kevin Martin, 36, one of five members of the Federal Communications Commission. They met at Harvard Law School–both are class of ‘93–and despite having been in Washington only a few years, have rocketed to the upper echelons of the capital power structure. Cathie gained Cheney’s confidence while accompanying him on political trips before the midterm elections, and Kevin helped vanquish Al Gore in the Florida recount battle.

After a brief stint as deputy chief of staff and White House liaison for Commerce Secretary Donald Evans, Cathie Martin served as Matalin’s No. 2 for the past 18 months. Before that, the University of Texas grad worked for former Texas Attorney General (now Senator-elect) John Cornyn.

Kevin Martin earned his spurs by being on the first flight to Florida from Austin the day after the contested 2000 election. As deputy general counsel to the Bush campaign, he oversaw the legal team working behind the scenes with the Dade and Broward County canvassing boards. His connections came in handy: He had clerked for U.S. District Court Judge William Hoeveler in Miami.

Now, Kevin Martin could hold the balance of power at the FCC, where he may be a swing vote in such crucial issues as deregulation of the Baby Bells. - from 2002

BTW, has anyone seen a response from the right wing media over the Rove/Cheney bombshells? Their heads must be spinning around like that little girl's in The Exorcist. I haven't seen anything, and the trolls on sites like HuffPo where they usually are so noisy, are pretty silent.

The word of for today's trial is train wreck! The defense strategy was complete mess today. All the yo yo cross-examining the witnesses and their memory is just beyond nauseating. Lack of focus is what I say. At least Ms. Martin said that she informed Libby and Cheney prior of July 6, 2003 of Plame's name although Libby claimed that he claimed Plame's name days later. Nevertheless, the defense tried to discredit her testimony. The defense team is turning the trial into the memory loss trial where the witnesses are giving some kind of pop quiz of thier memory.

I have a feeling that more to come from this trial will reveal more secrets that Libby didn't want to come out from this trial and his selective memory and not faulty memory and non-intention to lie crapola.

Fitz, I look forward to seeing you take it through the rest of the process, you are the genuine article and so is your case;-)

Yup, the client didn't get what he paid for.

Oh but maybe he did, since he's really just paying them to prolong the inevitable, today was another bad day for the defense, tomorrow and next weeks will be worse. But better for good government;-)

Fitzgerald was Attorney of the Year for 2005. Each year a new Attorney is selected by their peers. Attorney Wells is working with nothing so he is doing the best his can. Problems always a raise when a client isn't giving all the information the Attorney needs to give a strong Defense.
It is hard sometimes it's hard to understand our legal system and how they select lawyers from the Bar to be awarded. When I worked in the court one year I heard an Attorney name John Edwards won I had no idea who he was I thought one of the attorneys in New Jersey should have won. But lawyers have the choice not the staff.
