High Stakes...

Scooter is Shortstacked
Interesting day today in the Libby trial. It began with the judge's decision to release the Libby grand jury testimony tapes to the AP. While not necessarily a victory for the prosecution — Fitzgerald did not weigh in on either side — it was definitely a defeat for the defense. Walton also indicated he was likely to decide that certain articles that Team Libby wanted to keep away from the jury — specifically two followup articles to the famous 1×2x6 article in the Washington Post — were well within the prosecution's right to show to them. One has to wonder if Wells hasn't tested whatever good will he might have needed with the judge with regard to these sorts of decisions. Walton has noted that Wells never followed up with any line of questioning the Karl Rove red herring he tossed out in opening statements, and he has also expressed irritation that Libby might not testify after all the song and dance he put everyone through during discovery. As Swopa says, it will all just probably provide more fodder for a Libby appeal, which Wells has already mentioned is on his mind. <more>

I don't buy it. Anyone can appeal, just costs more money, delays prison.

If they fold, they are not automatically entitled to a new trail only if it is granted on procedure/Walton's rulings on admissibility of certain evidence.

Mr. VP, you should either answer these questions for the American people or you should resign

Yes the famous appeal after Libby is found guilty. Let's hope he gets the same doctor that Kenny boy got to pronounce him dead fast from a what ever and he can go to the same island Kenny boy is at. Look if Libby doesn't have a plan then he will be some jail birds little toy soldier in jail.

Pardon moi, but isn't Libby's non-testimony a white flag from defense?
