Former Dick Cheney Aide 'Scooter' Libby Found Guilty In CIA Leak Case

Of all the corruption and illegal activities going down behind closed doors in Washington, this guy gets to go to jail. Talk about bad fucking luck.

After 10 days of deliberations in one of the most closely watched Washington trials in recent memory, I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby Jr. was found guilty of lying to FBI agents and grand jurors about how he learned the identity of former CIA operative Valerie Plame.

If lying is a crime we're going to need bigger jails, especially around the Washington DC area.

In a verdict that experts said would very likely bring Libby prison time, the former chief of staff for Vice President Dick Cheney was convicted on a felony count of obstruction of justice, two counts of perjury and one of giving false statements to the FBI.

You're a lying liar, pants on fire. Wait, didn't the Vice President shoot someone in the face and then wait to report it?

He was found not guilty of another count of making false statements.

It's like my mother always told me. You tell one lie and then it snowballs and you have to tell another and another until BAM, you're indicted by a grand jury.

Libby was fingerprinted, photographed and released on his own recognizance following the reading of the verdict, during which he blinked "emphatically" and showed little emotion, according to a CNN report.

He blinked "emphatically"? How does one blink emphatically? That's the stupidest thing I've heard since about ten minutes ago. I was watching CNN.
