Libby to Be Pardoned?
Cronyism may reach ever greater heights in the “Scooter” Libby case, as it seems that President Bush — after commuting the former Cheney aide’s sentence Monday — may consider pardoning him.
On Tuesday Mr Bush declined to rule out a complete pardon for Libby at a later time.
“As to the future I rule nothing in and nothing out,” he told journalists in Washington. But he also reiterated that he thought Libby’s non-prison punishments should stand.
Mr Bush described what he said was a “very difficult decision.”
