Trump gives full pardon to lawyer who leaked Central Intelligence Agency agent's undercover identity

16 April 2018, 02:06 | Damon Campbell

Trump is suddenly very concerned about Scooter Libby. Here's why.

Not Released

Further ponderings have been considered due to comments from Kellyanne Conway, who serves as Trump's White House counsel. After the pardon, she said in a statement that the argument that Libby had been treated unfairly was "simply false".

Libby was convicted of making false statements, perjury and obstruction of justice in the 2007 investigation of Plame, a former covert Central Intelligence Agency agent and the wife of former ambassador Joseph Wilson IV.

The move would mark the third pardon by Trump.

Trump was assaulting the Federal Bureau of Investigation to Russian meddling in the 20-16 election to get connections amid the evaluation of the 20-16 presidential campaign.

"Scooter Libby is one of the most capable, principled, and honorable men I have ever known", Cheney said in a statement.

In a statement, Libby thanked Trump, saying his family has "suffered under the weight of a awful injustice". Mr Trump has called that probe a "witch hunt".

"I don't know Mr. Libby", Trump said.

Flynn, Manafort, Kushner and others now know that they don't have to worry about not answering truthfully special counsel Robert Mueller's questions because a Trump pardon will prevent them from spending any time in jail. By pardoning Mr. Libby, Mr. Trump sends a message to those who might incriminate him in crimes related to conspiring with Russians to tamper with the election: The message is that he will rectify any sadness that protecting a president might cause. Though spared jail time, Libby was not pardoned.

"It's not about me, it's absolutely not about "Scooter" Libby", she said.

He added that Trump is "essentially developing a coalition of extremists".

That's according to a person familiar with the president's decision who said the announcement could come as early as Friday. In addition to racial profiling, Arpaio was long criticized for what many in the community decried as inhumane prisons in Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix.

So when the ambassador, Joe Wilson, started to hear that erroneous claim being used to justify going to war with Saddam, he chose to speak out in an op-ed in the New York Times. "He leaked CLASSIFIED information, for which he should be prosecuted".

Hours later, the pardon for Libby, a convicted perjurer in an investigation initiated by Comey about leaking, was made public.

In March 2007, Libby was found guilty on the four felony counts, becoming the highest-ranking White House official convicted since the Iran-Contra scandal in the 1980s.
