This just in from Fox News, John Gibson reporting that President Bush will commute Scooter Libbey’s prison term, and that it is expected to happen within minutes. Gibson is reporting that Libbey will have a two year probation period and must pay the fine of $250,000.00.
This is, at the least, the right thing to do on Bush’s part – it should have been a pardon. Advise to Scooter Libbey? Watch your back, hire a driver and sue Joe Wilson, Valerie Plame and attorney Fitzgerald for all they are worth.
