Is it obstruction again?
It seems Scooter Libby's lawyers are going to subpoena 'classified' information about Valerie Plame's job in order to tie up the case and prevent prosecution. The idea is that since that information is classified, it can't be presented in open court. And that fact will tie up the prosecution between public court and 'secret' court systems. Of course, it's all, um, legal. So Libby, who is accused of obstruction of justice, may never be prosecuted because of maneuvering that obstructs the progress of the case toward the acquittal he insisted he'd receive. Which makes me think that a conviction is looking more likely and therefore the effort to play the justice system.
What's more, since Bush now controls more judges than the Cocaine Cartel does, the subpoena is a pretty 'sure thing', as is decisions sympathetic to the gaming of the justice system all along the way. So, I ask again - are the lawyers protecting Libby from an Obstruction of Justice conviction by in fact obstructing justice?
