No wonder he thinks Libby should be pardoned for intentionally leaking slanderous misinformation, which led to outing a covert CIA operative. He was leaking infromation from closed door testimony, to Nixon's White House, in the seventies, to try to protect Nixon, from the investigation.

[ QUOTE ]
"Even though I had no authority to act for the committee, I decided to call Fred Buzhardt at home" to tell him that the committee had learned about the taping system, Thompson wrote. "I wanted to be sure that the White House was fully aware of what was to be disclosed so that it could take appropriate action."

Armstrong said he and other Democratic staffers had long been convinced that Thompson was leaking information about the investigation to the White House. The committee, for example, had obtained a memo written by Buzhardt that Democratic staffers believed was based on information leaked by Thompson.

Armstrong said he thought the leaks would lead to Thompson's firing. "Any prosecutor would be upset if another member of the prosecution team was orchestrating a defense for Nixon," said Armstrong, who later became a Washington Post reporter and currently is executive director of Information Trust, a nonprofit organization specializing in open government issues.

Baker, meanwhile, insisted that Thompson be allowed to ask Butterfield the question about the taping system in a public session on July 16, 1973, three days after the committee had learned about the system

And Romney, the flip flopper's, flip flopper, who never issued a single pardon, or commutation during his entire Governorship, defending Bush's commutation of Libby, caught tying the family dog, in he travel cage, on top of his station wagon, and driving 800 Miles! He should have been thrown in jail for that, himself. This guy has already proven himself to be a liar, with his lies about hunting. He's a joke!

Reminds one of Frist, bring home the kitties for pets, and then disect them after they develop a relationship with him.

And, have you ever seen so many old men with trophy wives. Most of the Republican front runners have either committed horrible acts against animals, dumped their wives and families for younger women, spent years lobbying on K. Street, or been involved in serving as a mole for the White House while on an investigative committee.

No wonder the Republicans are behind the Democrats on raising campaign money, and most Independents want a Democratic Congress, and White House. /ccboard/images/graemlins/wink.gif
