Prick Up Your Ears..!
WASHINGTON - Prosecutors at the CIA leak trial on Monday started playing audiotapes of I. Lewis Libby's grand jury testimony, a key piece of evidence against Vice President Dick Cheney's former chief of staff.
It was the first time the trial jurors had heard Libby's voice.
On the taped grand jury testimony, Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald began by asking Libby to spell his name and asking if he has a nickname.
"Scooter," Libby replied.
Asked to explain, Libby joked, "Are we classified in here?" and then said that in the South where he is from, such a nickname is "less uncommon than it is up here."
Fitzgerald reminded Libby that a person who doesn't tell the truth in front of a grand jury can be charged with perjury. Libby said he understood.
"I am" prepared to proceed, Libby said. <more>
