2/8 Libby Trial

Libby is fucked.

The government has several witnesses saying that Libby lied. Libby would be insane to subject himself to Pat Fitzgerald, and calling Cheney in his defense? No thanks.

He won't be participating in his defense, because he might add to his jail time.

His only hope is that, like with Oliver North, is that the jury sees him as a flunky and think Cheney is the one who belongs in jail.
