"Prosecutor driven to 'do right thing'

Apparently, when Mr. Fitzgerald was first approached about the job in early 2001, he thought it was a joke because these appointments are typically awarded to politically connected lawyers. He isn't active in politics; in fact, he is registered as an independent.

"We have a long, rich history of political corruption in Chicago," Peter Fitzgerald says in an interview with the National Post. "I wanted someone who was independent of the politics of the state, independent of politics entirely, and I really wanted someone who was good."

Mr. Fitzgerald moved from his New York condominium to become the top federal law-enforcement official in Chicago, the third-largest city in the United States. Appointed by President George W. Bush on the former senator's recommendation, he was named U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois 10 days before 9/11.'

Good morning everyone!

Glad to see the smiley face this morning! Don't pay any attention to negative articles/comments about the long jury delib. Everone needs to keep a possitive attitude now. It could be a while longer yet.

Its clear that we have a responsible jury. It is understandable they would want clear definitions of legal terms, and a thorough run-through of all of the evidence, which in this case deals with overlapping time-lines, and complicated he-said/she-said components. They will want to be absolutely clear on everything before they convict one of the Veep's top aids to serve 30 years and pay a million+ dollars in damages.

So keep happy thoughts people. Keep Jan's 8:24 post in mind. We should count our lucky stars that we had such a fine prosecutor & team, and a wise and fair judge to handle one of the biggest trials in American history.

"I have thought for the longest time that [Giuliani] had zero chance," an aide to another Republican candidate who asked for anonymity talking up the chances of his boss's rival, tells Newsweek. "But he's got real momentum. And if there's a terrorist attack between now and the election, he could be the next president of the United States."

The judge investigating Princess Diana's death looks set on Monday to decide who will be witnesses at the inquest, raising the extraordinary possibility of the royal family being summoned to the stand.

Hi Anthony,

Good Morning Everyone! :)

Walton, Fitz and Wells are going back and forth on those two questions. It will be interesting to see the outcome of all of this. I hope the Jury gives us the truth soon!

From FDL..

Fitz: we couldn't disagree more. Perjury is the more specific count. The obstruction count includes language about the GJ. It generally says he obstructed the GJ, then it says, it was part of the obstruction that defendant made the following false statements. Then it goes on paragraph 33, to say that at the time of the statement he knew it was false. The sections we have provided are all about these issues. The obstruction is more general than the perjury charge.

Have a great Monday! :D

Its shaping up to be a busy week so far.

Tuesday:
Senate to debate the politicizing of the hiring and firing of US attorneys - tomorrow they will hear from subpoenaed attorneys.

Wednesday:
King Abdullah of Jordan will visit Congress to urge US towards Middle East peace, crisis in Iraq... and then later this week to visit Bush, Cheney, & Rice to discuss Palestine/Israeli conflict and pretty much everything else they've screwed up in the Middle East.

------------

March 5th, This Day in History:

1770 - Boston Massacre

1933 - Last free election in Germany (until after WWII) the Nazi Party received 44% of votes puting Hitler in power

1946 - Winston Churchill delivered famous "Iron Curtain Speech"

1953 - Joseph Stalin dies at age 73

1963 - Patsy Cline died in plane crash

1997 - North & South Korea met for 1st time in 25 years for peace talks

Halliburton May Forfeit $400 Million for Using Contractors in Iraq

http://www.contracostatimes.com/mld/cctimes/news/nation/16808810.htmISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Pakistan on Wednesday rejected a claim by the U.S. intelligence chief that Osama bin Laden and his deputy were hiding in northwestern Pakistan, and that al-Qaida was setting up camps near the Afghan border.

Interior Minister Aftab Khan Sherpao, told The Associated Press there were no al-Qaida training camps in his country and U.S. officials had not provided any intelligence suggesting there were.

"We will act on any such intelligence, but so far they have not" provided any, he said.

Sherpao's comments came a day after Mike McConnell, the new U.S. intelligence chief, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that al-Qaida was trying to set up operations in largely ungoverned parts of Pakistan's northwest, along Afghanistan's eastern border.

I just Bryan (Brian?) York's comments --I know, :(--, and I think the neo-cons are really hoping for a hung jury at this point because otherwise, it's convictions on most of the counts.

Hi Biloximan,

I just read that about ex-Halliburton guy (Al Neffgen) & Walter Reed. No wonder Gerbil wants to head this investigation personally.

I also read that Army officials "refused to allow [Maj. Gen. George Weightman] to testify" before the Committee on Oversight and Govt. Reform regarding the memo pertaining to privatization of services, therefore forcing them to issue a subpoena.

I'm so glad Congress is finally starting to question oversight, and making an effort to stop the Dickster from screwing the American public, the troops, and Iraq out of money. Too bad its taken so long.

Committee subpoenas former Walter Reed chief

Congress' letter to Weightman

GO WAXMAN!!!!

from Kennedy article:

"But Army officials refused to allow Weightman to appear before the committee after he was relieved of command."

“The Army was unable to provide a satisfactory explanation for the decision to prevent General Weightman from testifying,” committee members said in a statement today."

They also put a gag order on all the soldiers admitted to Walter Reed facility.

"How can you have the mess we have in New Orleans, and not have had deep investigations of the federal government, the state government, the city government, and the failure of citizenship in the Ninth Ward, where 22,000 people were so uneducated and so unprepared, they literally couldn't get out of the way of a hurricane."

Patriot Girl:

The Gerbil will try to cover his ass on this one. But, too little too late on this one. And since the Walter Reed mess is linked to Halliburton, this is a wet dream investigation for Waxman since he is investigating Halliburton. Tje money trail, PG, the money trail.

I read this nugget from FDL. Thanks Christy!:

Oh, and speaking of Dick Cheney, look who shows up in footnote 29, wherein the court discusses the number of people that could have presented extrinsic evidence regarding Libby's state of mind at the time in question. Mentioned are John Hannah, David Addington, Jenny Mayfield, and…oh, look, it's Dick Cheney. As the opinion says, the Vice President could have been called to testify

"concerning the issues he [Cheney] directed the defendant to address and upon which the Vie President expected the defendant would devote his time and attention."

Now isn't that interesting? Almost as though Judge Walton knows that the defense had no intention of calling Cheney because they didn't want him to talk about just that. (Perhaps because the answers Dick Cheney would have given during cross-examination would not have been altogether helpful for the defendant?) And yet, there it is, laid out all nice and neatly at the end of footnote 29.


This is not good for the defense since they intend to appeal if Scooter is found guilty. Walton is not happy to the fact of being hoodwinked.

Another update. Two more subpoenas in the canning attorneys. From Pelosi's blogsite, The Gavel:


Congresswoman Linda Sánchez, Chairwoman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Commercial and Administrative Law (CAL), announced this morning that her subcommittee will seek to issue subpoenas to two additional former U.S. Attorneys who were fired by the Bush Administration.

The CAL Subcommittee will meet on Tuesday, March 6 at 10:00 am in 2141 Rayburn House Office Building, to vote on issuing subpoenas to former U.S. Attorneys Daniel Bogden of Nevada and Paul K. Charlton of Arizona. The subpoenas would require them to testify before the subcommittee at its hearing scheduled for the same afternoon, joining four other former U.S. Attorneys who CAL subpoenaed last week.

"The jury's been locked away for eight days now, popping their heads out to make unsuccessful requests for dictionaries and even losing one of their number to the gaping jaws of "media exposure." In the meantime, CNN reports that presiding judge Reggie Walton has released a memorandum opinion clarifying for the record that he feels the defense has acted to mislead both himself and prosecutors."
