WASHINGTON (Ucs News) In the wake of his conviction Lewis Libby, Former Vice Presidential Chief off staff, vowed that he will stop lying and that he will fight for a new trial. Lewis stated that “I have learned my lesson about lying to protect Dick Cheney.” Lewis also expressed interest in a Pardon commenting “I did the administrations dirty work and I got caught, George W. Bush said he would pardon me.”
In response to Libby’s pardon request, Democratic leaders urged President Bush not to pardon former vice presidential chief of staff I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby. Libby’s attorneys, meanwhile, vowed to seek a new trial, or, failing that, to appeal the jury’s verdict.
Vice President Dick Cheney, in a written statement, said he was “disappointed with the verdict and that this will only serve to embolden the terrorists.” “I am saddened for Scooter and his family,” Cheney said. “As I have said before, Scooter lied for me and that I owe him a debt of service.”
Speaking from the Rose Garden George W. Bush complained about the guilty verdict. “This shows the weakness of our democracy. A jury trial sometimes convicts people that lied for me.” The President stated off the record that he is considering a pardon for Libby. “He broke the law at my request, so I better let him go, it’s the right wing thing to do.”
