Libby Trial: Peeling Back The Layers
There have been a lot of motions flying back and forth this weekend in the Libby trial, and there is some interesting speculation regarding the "will he or won't he" line of thought on Libby's testimony. Thought we could do with a bit of an update this morning on all of this, and wanted to include some peeks below the surface. <more>

"Be a man and testify!"

That's the real problem. Libby is not a man. Outta here! Grammy is on tonight! Go James Blunt! Peace to all and Fitz.

Anon thank you for your support of James Blunt I do hope he wins but he's a winner already to me. I got his album and T-shirt as a Christmas gift. When I went to his concert and met his I got to see just how humble and sweet he is. I think his music will last like the Beatles, James Brown, Elvis and other great artist.
Now to Libby's defense. Wells needs the Dickster to testify. As for the other journalist Wells has to make the jurors believe that the word was out so anybody could hear about Plame. Now as for Mitchell it might get a little tricky. Wells has to prove that hear say is believing. It's like Santa Clause, children believe but never really see him. I read about Wells other high profile cases that put him on the famous list. But this case is one that he will have to say he tried to get a guilty man free but couldn't. Fitz will be ready for the twist and turns as the defense plots.

Who's James Blunt? One of those chronic marijuana a smoking Rap artists?

9:07 PM  
Blogger Jackie said...

No Anon he's from the UK and I guess once a marijuana smoker like Bush but he chose music rather then druggs. Why did you say rap? You know music is univeral it's not about race. You might want to join another blog site that deals with dividing people. I guess I'm one of those Americans who wasn't taught racism sorry I can't relate. But I do some who might have your way of thinking. The former Rep. from Virginia, Tony Snow, Bush Administration and some GOP. Check out other web sites you'll have one or more that believe in racism. Good Luck on your search.

Anon Let me tell you something yes the Peach sent me the only DVD left with James Blunt as they were all sold out in Afghan. Peaches knows great music when she hears it. To bad she wasn't home to go to the concert with me. I know if you went to one of Mr. Blunts concerts you would think differently. As it was sold out with a mixtures of all ages and races and a sign language person for guest who only read sign it was wonderful. Now I like other artist but not enough to go to a concert. My son works are Universal Studios so he gets me tickets for what I want to see and Mr. Blunt was the only one I wanted to see after seeing him on Oprah.

Teak you would have loved the Blunt concert. I sang every song and knew the words to all of them. I even stayed awake until 1 am that was a shocker for me.

I heard that Fitz has a killer voice. I saw Fitz in the bathroom stall belt out a tune from Bing Crosby. Fitz should go on American Idol! After the Libby trial, I heard that Fitz is pursuing a singing career and maybe Ms. Jackie should go to his concert at Universal Studios. And take Teak with her. The tickets would sell out!

Dammit! Dang AI, that Carrie Underwood won other music awards. James Blunt deserved to win or one of those other singers.


Sorry Miss Jackie, Bing music isn't my cup of tea. ;) I would attend a court room session with you. I would attend that any day than any old star stuff. Even if was any of Team America bringing down those evil doers.

Teak when when I met him he was so polite and sweet. Yes his eyes are beautful but he's short too. He looks directly at you when speaking but he's so thin I just wanted to fix him a meal. I refused an autograft but he asked if he could kiss me on the cheek. Oh such a sweet mannered young man with so much talent.
As for the comment about Fitz singing well I'd go to his concert to save him from the press. Now dancing and singing aren't Fitz's bag but he is the winner at kicking evildoers butt. Just ask the Dickster or convict Libby.

Hi,everyone. Very busy with a new project these days. Hard to keep up with the trial. I will be following it to see who testifies. I am hoping a certain person will take the stand and self-incriminate/self destruct. Can't wait to see how it all plays out.

If Fitz were to do a concert I know Libby would ask for a delay in going to jail so he could attend the Fitz concert. It could happen. Black ask the judge for a delay so he could go to a barbecue in Canada so I think Judge Reggie could do the same for Libby. Look it's going to be a long time before Libby will get out and Fitz might have retired from singing by then. I think Randall should be Fitz's manager.

WASHINGTON – David Addington, chief legal adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney, says he was taken aback when the White House started making public pronouncements about the CIA leak investigation.

In the fall of 2003, President Bush's press secretary was categorically denying that either Karl Rove or Lewis "Scooter" Libby was involved in exposing the identity of Valerie Plame, a CIA employee married to a critic of the war in Iraq.

"Why are you making these statements?" Mr. Addington asked White House communications director Dan Bartlett.

"Your boss is the one who wanted" them, Mr. Bartlett replied, referring to Mr. Cheney.

With that, "I shut up," Mr. Addington recalled recently for jurors in Mr. Libby's CIA leak trial, which begins its fourth week Monday with Mr. Libby's lawyers calling their first witnesses. ...

"Were you at all concerned that while the president was stating that there's no White House involvement in any leaks whatsoever, that you were one of the people who may have been referred to" in press reports about possible White House leakers? asked Mr. Fitzgerald.

Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney made a common mistake in their public handling of the Plame affair, says presidential scholar and University of Texas government professor Bruce Buchanan.

Common mistake??

10:40 PM  
Blogger Jackie said...

Teak I wonder what the families think of that common mistake as 3000 plus soldiers are dead and more everyday. I don't think common mistake is ok for the lost of these brave soldiers lives. I guess that's enough for the GOP as an answer.

Addington is a liar too, he throws tantrums from what I've read if anyone disagrees with him like other lawyers on torture and such, or they get run out of their jobs. They are all covering their butts now.

Poor James, I had my fingers crossed for him. The Dixie Chicks won, good for them though.

One thing about James Blunt, when he sings = you just stop what you are doing, just listen and watch. That little girl that sang with Justin Timberlake was awesome. She will be a star. Al Gore!

What is with these states pushing this HPV vaccines on these young girls? Now Kansas wants to do it. Big Pharma, I think it is Merck is behind it along with various corrupted politicians no doubt.

The drug companies are not exactly in the best light right now nor are vaccines. I've read enough and compared notes on my own illness to not have seen certain things on government vaccines and "activities" to scare the hell out of anyone. There is no excuse, none.

How long has this vaccine been out and geez, who did they test it on?

How ironic, when I woke up from my snooze this evening that Trump was on the tube yakking about some job with bees and honey. I cannot stand him so I changed the channel.

Q6B80.html on rawstory

Nations' bees are trouble.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - A mysterious illness is killing tens of thousands of honeybee colonies across the country, threatening honey production, the livelihood of beekeepers and possibly crops that need bees for pollination.

People should be alarmed and should not have to ask why.

Someone should ask Bill Kristol if he is a racist or not. I did not get the TV channel changed around fast enough this morning. I saw Faux News Sunday Morning or whatever the hell that is called just long enough to make me sick. Juan Williams was talking about Obama and the camera kept cutting back to Kristol and he was making faces and laughing. What an ass.

It is about time that AP is wakes up to how those people manipulated 'evidence' in the 'intelligence' in the run up to the war.

I just saw the kids dancing. And I saw little kids that look like little pints. As for Smokey Robinson, he can sing anything and I listen. As to this point, James Blunt hasn't won an award, but as a legendary artist with his talent, he is a winner in my book. As for Ludicris and Fitz album, Fitz should keep his day job (smile)!

Good Morning Fitzie & JBs,

Excellent read at FDL by Swopa this morning:

"...Scooter appears to have wanted Fitzgerald to believe that he was indeed the "leaker" described in the article, but that the context was far more innocent than reported. In fact, given that the October 12 Post story reiterated a claim from a previous article that "two top White House officials disclosed Plame's identity to least six Washington journalists," the multiple (and exaggerated) confessions by Libby seem likely to be an effort to cover for the actual leakers there just as he did with Rove. He wanted his questioners to think, "Oh, that's me, you got your man, even if there was a bit of a misunderstanding. Guess you don't need to look any further."

An enterprising reporter would take this as a challenge to, indeed, go further. For all that has been written about the Plame leak, the many of the events of July 12 are still largely a mystery — one made all the more tantalizing by the visible reluctance of Fitzgerald's prosecution to address them. For instance, the trial testimony of former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer walked up to the edge of discussing a batch of phone calls that he and fellow flack Dan Bartlett were preparing to make to reporters from Air Force One as it flew back from Africa that day… but neither side asked Ari to explain what was said during those calls, and particularly whether Valerie Plame Wilson's job at the CIA was mentioned."

" At a farewell reception at Blair House for the retiring chief of protocol, Don Ensenat, who was President Bush's Yale roommate, the president shook hands with Washington Life Magazine's Soroush Shehabi. "I'm the grandson of one of the late Shah's ministers," said Soroush, "and I simply want to say one U.S. bomb on Iran and the regime we all despise will remain in power for another 20 or 30 years and 70 million Iranians will become radicalized."

"I know," President Bush answered.

"But does Vice President Cheney know?" asked Soroush.

President Bush chuckled and walked away."

Good Morning Everyone!

Looks as though Walton has to review the indictment now...

From FDL:

Wells: I strongly disagree with Fitz' characterization of what took place. The obstruction count was based on three false statements. We wanted it clear that on terms of the obstruction that there was nothing wih Grossman and Miller, What the obstruction count was predicated on was that obstruction was based on three-prong statement. I opened on it. The Jury can consider June 23 and July 8 in terms of what Libby knew.

[Yup–Wells is trying to hide the what was obstructed–that Libby was trying to hide his conversation to Judy. Clever move, utterly dishonest, but clever. I think they emphasized the third false statement charge (which there was none) so by dismissing it, they could dismiss the obstruction charge.]

Fitz: I'll briefly respond, The vice in taking language out, as opposed to a count is that you're asking them to rule beforehand. I think the jury could find that the description of July 12 was a lie, but not using the language in the count, the jury can use that evidence against Mr. Libby, they can also use that evidence that when he said the first time he told her on July 12, that that was a lie. This proposed instruction would focus on July 12–and the language in the indictment, even though they were never going to see the indictment–would lead them to focus inappropriately on July 12.

Wells; We're not going to address that conversation. It has been dismissed. The jurors should know that it has been dismissed.

Walton: I'm going to have to … I'll have to go back and re-evaluate the evidence to see whether… I don't want something before the jury that could be prejudicial. I need to go back and review the indictment.

Hi JB's,

I have heard it was a matter of time until the retaliations for the war in Iraq began-I hope this isn't one of them....

'Explosion' near US base in Japan

The Pentagon has confirmed reports of an explosion near a US army base south of Tokyo today.

The Japanese Kyodo News Agency reported that police had found parts of a "launch pad" near a US army base, Camp Zama.

Authorities say a "guerrilla attack" is suspected of the attack. It is not clear whether there were injuries or damage.

No further details are immediately available.
I sure hope Dickie scampers up to the witness stand with Scooter. Scooter will need a step-stool, so he can't nervously swing his feet back and forth in the chair while sp questions him hehe

Good afternoon Justice Bloggers,

It's good to be here. I was blocked from posting on Huffington post a month ago and I don't know why. I stay on topic, I don't swear, I am not a racist by any means....Bizarre. Wonder what's going over there. I have been blogging and posting there for 2 years and then all of a sudden.

Fitz: Get Cheney on the stand and show him to be the arrogant thief and lier he is. Pin his ears back and don't let him BS.....I have never seen an interview that he dosen't intimidate and pull rank. GET HIM!
