Scooter Libby Was Not Arrested

By       (Page 1 of 7 pages)   3 comments

Fox News Sunday interview with Dick Cheney: Dec 21, 2008, from transcript:


“Chris Wallace, HOST: I’m Chris Wallace and this is Fox News Sunday: . . .


WALLACE: [Question:] Highest moment the last eight years[?].

CHENEY: Highest moment in the last eight years. Well, I think the most important, the most compelling, was 9/11 itself and what that entailed, what we had to deal with, the way in which that changed the nation and set the agenda for what we've had to deal with as an administration.

WALLACE: And I assume that's also your lowest moment.

CHENEY: Sure, yeah.

WALLACE: Federal prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald.

CHENEY: I'm going to pass on that.

WALLACE: What about the criticism that in the Blagojevich case, as in the Libby case, he doesn't just stay within the four corners of the indictment but he makes political comments?

CHENEY: I'm going to pass on that.

WALLACE: Did you really tell Senator Leahy bleep yourself?

CHENEY: I did.”


As Wallace does here, some conservative commentators have tried to parallel the odd arrest of Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich on Dec. 9, 2008, and the indictment of I. Lewis ‘Scooter’ Libby, Vice President Cheney’s Chief of Staff, on Oct. 28, 2005.
