Bush commutes Libby sentence

July 3rd, 2007 at 10:20 am by David Farrar

President Bush has commuted the sentence of Scooter Libby on exempting him from a 2 1/2-year prison term. He has left in place a $250,000 fine and two years probation.

Regardless of the merits, or otherwise, of an individual case, I don’t think it is a good look to grant clemency to your former aides, and especially to do before they have served even part of their sentence.

Mind you at 29% in the polls, one can’t drop much further I suppose.
