What crime committed?
"Libby’s crime, according to Fitzgerald, is perjury and obstruction of justice. The grounds? People’s memories of who said what to whom more than three years ago differ. Good Lord, may I never be subject to a grand jury inquest as I forget appointments, names, faces, passwords, jokes, what I told my husband yesterday, and whether or not I paid the phone bill last month.
Where, I wonder, are all the folks who worry about attracting good people to government service? Libby gave up a lucrative private practice to serve his country and now may lose everything including his liberty for the trouble.
This trial is a farce and an outrage." — Full disclosure: My husband is with the same law firm as Libby’s lawyer — a fact I discovered when I proposed that we contribute to Libby’s legal defense fund. <more>
