Lynne Cheney: Putting Scooter Libby On Trial ‘Does Not Reflect Well On Our Judicial System’

Scooter Libby, the former Chief of Staff for Vice President Cheney, has been charged with “obstruction of justice, lying to the FBI and committing perjury before a grand jury.” His trial is scheduled to start in January. Libby’s lawyers plan “to call Cheney as a witness.”

Today on Fox News, Lynne Cheney, the wife of the Vice President, described Libby as “a man who spent a great deal of his life as a dedicated public servant who’s done an awful lot of good.” Ms. Cheney said putting Libby on trial “does not reflect well on our judicial system.”

LSB: Huh? Putting public officials that lie to FBI investigators shouldn’t be put on trial? Did she hold those same beliefs about Clinton during the Paula Jones affair, where the lie was about a blow job and not outing a CIA agent? Lynne Cheney is a hypocritical bitch! (And that’s about the nicest thing I can think to say about her.)
