The Libby Mess

From UPI:

Prosecutor: Libby lied repeatedlyWASHINGTON, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- The former chief
of U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney's staff lied over and over to the FBI about
the leak of a CIA agent's identity, a federal prosecutor said.

I. Lewis
"Scooter" Libby's trial on five counts of perjury, making false statements and
obstructing an investigation began Tuesday with opening statements, The
Washington Post reported. Libby is not charged with actually disclosing Valerie
Plame's identity to reporters. But the suggestion that Libby and Cheney blew
Plame's cover as part of a political effort to discredit her husband, former
Ambassador Joseph Wilson, is the subtext of the trial.

"How could we
reach a point where the chief of staff for the vice president was repeatedly
lying to federal investigators?" Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald asked the
jury. "That's what this case is all about."Fitzgerald said that Libby
deliberately lied when he told investigators he learned that Plame was a CIA
agent from Tim Russert of NBC and then gossiped about it to other reporters. He
said Cheney was Libby's actual source of information about Plame.

Theodore Wells, Libby's lawyer, said his client made honest mistakes
while trying to give "his best good-faith recollection."

This is going to be huge....
