Libby Defense Rests
Posted on Feb 14, 2007
The defense has rested in “Scooter” Libby’s Plamegate trial after spending only three days (compared with the prosecution’s three weeks) making its case. Libby’s defense focused on discrediting prosecution witnesses and hyping the defendant’s allegedly bad memory.
The prosecution spent three weeks making its case in a trial that revealed the inner workings of the White House after the invasion of Iraq.
Witnesses included current and former White House officials and some of Washington’s top journalists.
But they did not include Mr Libby himself or his former boss Mr Cheney, despite indications last year that the defence would call them.
