Trump is righting a wrong that took place several years ago in the George W. Bush administration, and the liberals can’t stand it.
Perhaps knowing what it feels like to be railroaded by a corrupt government and Department of Justice, President Trump has shown mercy on former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, for I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby and has pardoned him for lying to the FBI.
The Daily Caller reports that after months of consideration, the President decided to pardon Libby who was found guilty of perjury in 2007., two years after leaving the White House.
Trump to pardon Scooter Libby… https://t.co/hzZ4xH7P87

Libby was found to have leaked the name of CIA spy Valerie Plame as the one who dispatched then diplomat Joseph Wilson to Africa to investigate claims that Iraq was purchasing ‘yellow cake’ uranium from the Dark Continent. The Plame ploy was one of the first modern day acts of the Deep State.
President George W. Bush commuted Libby’s sentence, but declined pardoning him.
The Caller writes that if “the pardon goes through, it will be the second high-profile pardon Trump okayed. Maricopa Co. Sheriff Joe Arpaio was pardoned on Aug. 25, 2017, for a criminal contempt of court conviction.”
This news should have the Left stewing all weekend.
