To the surprise of absolutely no one, Scooter Libby will serve no jail time. Sure, Scooter was not pardoned, he’s still on probation, and, in theory, he’ll owe around 200,000. Wanna bet “Friends of W” will give him the money for that?
I was not a fan of Nixon by 1973, but I did believe the Nixon pardon was the right thing to do. I cannot say the same of commuting Scooter Libby’s jailtime.
