Libby Found Guilty on 4 of 5 Counts

Guilty of 3 of the 4 4 of 5 charges.
Rule of Law. RULE of LAW! Because it's not about the sex identity of Valerie Plame, but the lying. Rule of Law. Right?

(thanks to Alert Reader Sewmouse for the correction.)

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A federal jury Tuesday found I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney, guilty on four of five counts in his perjury and obstruction of justice trial.

Libby was convicted of:

# obstruction of justice when he intentionally deceived a grand jury investigating the outing of CIA operative Valerie Plame;

# making a false statement by intentionally lying to FBI agents about a conversation with NBC newsman Tim Russert;

# perjury when he lied in court about his conversation with Russert;

# a second count of perjury when he lied in court about conversations with other reporters.

It's even better - 4 out of 5 counts.

And only ONE person that hung them on that 3rd count that would have made it a grand-slam.

One down. Cheney next. Then after he lies himself into another hole, they can strip out the big cheese.
