Libby to be pardoned??

Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall June 19, 2006 10:47 PM: "the groundwork is now being laid for pardoning Scooter Libby for his alleged crimes relating to the Plame case."

Libby is being prosecuted for stonewalling the investigation into the Plame leak, and Bush is running a trial balloon on pardoning him. Assured of a pardon, he won't talk, and if he doesn't talk, the prosecution of the leak itself cannot go forward. Thus, the whole scandal is squelched, and the underlying bad behavior is unpunished.
