I Lewis “Scooter” Libby Indicted

Patrick Fitzgerald, United States Department of Justice Office of Special Counsel to the Grand Jury, has indicted I Lewis “Scooter” Libby, Chief of Staff to the Vice President of the United States on multiple charges. Here’s the PDF indictment.

The charges are: Obstruction of Justice, two charges of False Statement, and two charges of Perjury.

It is a bittersweet day when deception and deceit is officially alleged to be found in one of the closest advisors to the Vice President of the United States and consequently within the White House.

If this charge is true, then what other lies have the citizens of the United States been told? If a high Executive Branch official is brazen enough to make false statements to the Grand Jury under oath, then what other false statements have been made to reporters, and hence to citizens, over the years?
