Above Board?

Bush commuted Libby's sentence without running the request through lawyers at the Justice Department. He also did not ask Patrick Fitzgerald, the prosecutor in this case, for his input, as is customary. No, he did it in secret, cowering in a dark corner...like a little bitch.

Dallas Morning News:

Nearly a decade ago, a GOP-led House impeached President Bill Clinton for lying under oath and obstructing justice in a civil deposition. Yesterday, a Republican president commuted the sentence of former top White House staffer Lewis “Scooter” Libby, who was convicted of the same thing in a criminal investigation. Republicans are known for being tough on crime. Apparently there’s an exception when the criminal is a member of President Bush’s inner circle.
