In 2003 Scott McClellan, then the White House Press Secretary, tells us he has spoken to Libby and Rove and assures us they were not involved in the outing of CIA agent Valerie Plame.
Libby was found guilty of four counts of perjury, obstruction of justice, and making false statements in March 2007. Neither he nor anyone else has been charged with the actual leak, but that's probably because everyone is still lying about it.
When Pres. Bush commuted Mr. Libby's 30 month jail sentence he abused the power of the President, clearly an impeachable offense.

The report in the Washington Post details 20 meetings held in 2006-7 alone organized by deputies of Karl Rove.
Reuters reports today about a Chinese woman charged with "organizing pornographic activiities" when she organized nude internet chat sessions. Using a webcam. Right: chatting in the buff.
Charges were dropped, it seems, when after examining the actual laws officials discovered there was no law against nude internet chatting.
Chalk one up for rule of law in China.
When Vice President Cheney visited Afghanistan last week, he traveled on a C-17 named for the late, racisit, segregationist, chauvanist, downright icon of bigotry and long time Senator from South Carolina: Strom Thurmond.…
Chevy Chase wrote a great peice in the NY Times saturday about his friends Gerald and Betty Ford. Betty Ford inspired Chevy to kick his own drug dependency. Chevy and Gerald appear to have shared quite a close friendship.
