    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    He should've just emailed his girl toy on his private server and then no one would care.

    He was convicted of obstruction of justice and perjury. I suggest you educate yourself both with the nature of those crimes, the typical punishment that accompanies them, and specifically to the trial, and what he plead.

    If there was no crime, he couldn't really obstruct justice now, could he? Why was there no prosecution of the actual leaker?

    Obviously, a jury which heard the entire fourteen day trial, which you did not, disagrees with you. At any rate, that criminal was convicted. The failure of justice was Rove and Cheney's absence in the court room as pointed out by at least one juror, Libby was guilty, but was the fall guy for those two pos's that walked.

    Do you really think justice is ever served, hmm?

    Collins, a former Washington Post reporter, said jurors wanted to hear from others involved in the case, including Bush political adviser Karl Rove, who was one of two sources for the original leak. Defense attorneys originally said both Libby and Cheney would be witnesses, and Rove was on the potential witness list.

    “I will say there was a tremendous amount of sympathy for Mr. Libby on the jury. It was said a number of times, ‘What are we doing with this guy here? Where’s Rove? Where are these other guys?”’ Collins said. “I’m not saying we didn’t think Mr. Libby was guilty of the things we found him guilty of. It seemed like he was, as Mr. Wells put it, he was the fall guy.”
