BUSH COMMUTES LIBBY

Hoooooly shit...

From CNN, 12 minutes ago:
Quote:
Bush commutes Libby's prison sentence



WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush has commuted the prison term of former White House aide Lewis "Scooter" Libby, who faced 30 months in prison after his March conviction on federal charges of perjury, obstruction of justice and lying to investigators.

Earlier Monday, a federal appeals court unanimously ruled that the former White House aide could not delay his 2 -year prison term. Libby was convicted in March of lying and obstructing the investigation into the 2003 leak of CIA operative Valerie Plame's identity.

Libby was only weeks ago from surrendering to a prison.

Bush, who was under great pressure by Libby allies to pardon the former chief of staff, said that by commuting Libby's sentence he is still leaving "harsh" punishment in place.

Libby was the highest-ranking White House official ordered to prison since the Iran-Contra affair. His lawyers said that they had a good chance of overturning the conviction on appeal.

Soooooooo... what is this "harsh" punishment again? Unless by "harsh", they mean "no".

Why did Bush knock down the towers?

If I fill half my tank with Shell V-Power gas and the other half with Chevron with Techron gas will I have V-TEC gas?

it means he doesn't go to prison. It's not a pardon, which would be a complete forgiveness of the crime and effectively remove the conviction from his record. When you commute someone's sentence, you change it to something less. In this case, Bush commuted the prison term but Libby still has to pay the $250,000 fine and will still be on probation for two years.
